O: 'Went away?'
C: ''They disappeared'
O: ' Hmm, so what does your screen look like now?'
C: 'It's blank, it wont accept anything when I type.'
O: 'Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out??'
C: 'How do I tell?'
O: 'Can you see the C: prompt on the screen??'
C: ' What's a sea-prompt??'
O: ' Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen.??'

O: ' Dark?'
C: ' Yes- the office light is off and the only light I have is coming in from
O: ' Well turn on the office light then.'
C: ' I cant.'
O: ' No ? Why not?'
C: ' Because there's a power failure.'
O: ' A power....A power failure ?? Aha, Okay, we 've got it licked now. Do
you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your
computer come in ??'
C: ' Well, yes. I keep them in the closet.'
O: ' Good. Go get them and unplug your system and pack it up just like it
was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it
