A Laugh For The New Year
Posted 29 December 2006 - 12:56 PM
This is a collection of some of the silliest queries that call centre operators have had to deal with. They were published in one of our daily newspapers
OPERATOR: I need you to right-click on the open desktop.
OPERATOR: Did you get a pop- up menue.
OPERATOR: OK. Right-click again. Do you see a pop-up menue.
OPERATOR: Can you tell me what you have done up until this point.
CUSTOMER: Sure. You told me to WRITE click and I WROTE click.......
CALLER: The coffee cup holder on my computer is broken. Can I get a replacement please?
HELP DESK: I'm not sure what you mean. Where exactly is this coffee cup holder?
CALLER: Well there's a button on the front of my computer and when I press it a drinks caddy pops out, you know, its just like the ones they have in cars.
HELP DESK: Sir, I think you will find thats the CD slot.
TEENAGE CALLER: I wonder if you could help me.
HELP DESK: What's the problem?
TEENAGE CALLER: My dad bought me a computer last week, and I was taking out a CD when the phone rang. I was also eating a pizza. With the CD draw open, I set the pizza on it to pick up the phone.
HELP DESK: What happened then?
TEENAGE CALLER: Well, the CD draw took part of the Pizza inside the computer and now I can,t get the draw open. IT REALLY IS A BIG MESS. Can you help me?
HELP DESK: This is bad, very bad.
TEENAGE CALLER: Well I'm hungry. Can you help me get the pizza out......
A help desk took this call from a client having trouble with his print screen. After a lot of discussion, a technician was dispatched to his home.
CLIENT: My print screen feature will not work.
TECHNICIAN: I've tested it and it seems to be working fine.
CLIENT: Oh, let me try it again.
Client presses a blank sheet of paper against the monitor screen and then pushes the "Print Screen" key. Technician starts laughing.
CLIENT: Whats wrong?
TECHNICIAN: I'm sorry,but when you push the "Print Screen" key, the document comes out of your printer.
AND TO MY MIND THE BEST OF THE LOT..........
CALLER: Can you give me the telephone number for Jack?
OPERATOR: Sorry Sir, I don't understand what you are talking about.
CALLER: In section 5 of the user guide, it clearly states that I need to unplug the fax machine from the AC wall socket and TELEPHONE JACK before cleaning. Now can you give me the number for Jack.
OPERATOR: I think you mean the telephone scocket on the wall.

Apologies if this is old hat but for those who have not read it before- hope you enjoy it!
The CAR versus WINDOWS
At a recent COMDEX computer conference, Bill Gates (of Microsoft) compared the
motor industry with the computer industry, and stated:
If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we'd all be
driving twenty-five dollar cars that get 1000 miles to a gallon.
In response, GM issued the following statement:
If GM had developed its technology like Microsoft, we'd all be driving cars
with the following characteristics:
For no good reason, your car would crash twice a day.
Every time the white lines on the road are repainted, you would need to buy a
Occasionally your car would die on the motorway, for no good reason. You just
accept this, restart, and drive on.
Occasionally, executing a particularly complex manoeuvre, such as a left turn,
your car would shutdown and refuse to restart. You would then have to
reinstall the engine.
Only one person at a time would be able to use your car, unless you bought Car
95 or Car NT, but then you would have to buy more seats.
All individual warning lights would be replaced by a single 'General
Protection Fault' light.
The airbag would ask "Are you sure?" before activating.
GM would require all drivers to buy a deluxe set of Rand McNally road maps,
even although they neither need them or want them. Attempting to delete this
option would cause the car's performance to diminish by 50% or more. (NOTE:
Rand McNally is a GM subsidiary company).
Every time GM introduced a new car, buyers would have to learn to drive all
over again, because none of the controls would operate in the same way as in
their old cars.
You would have to press the "Start" button to switch off the engine.
Now where do you want to go today.......?

I love the quote.......The airbag would ask "Are you sure" before activating...
My computer must ask me at least four times "Do you wish to sign off" it drives me insane ......
