Tech Support humour

Tech Support: "Customer Support, this is David, may I help you?"

Customer: "Hello, yes, it's me."

Tech Support: "Oh, it's me too." [chuckle]

Customer: "No, Esmie. E, s, m, i, e."

Tech Support: "Oh, sorry." [blush]


Tech Support: "Would you right-click on the Open Desktop."

Customer: "Ok."

Tech Support: "Did you get a pop-up menu?"

Customer: "No."

Tech Support: "Ok. Right click again. Do you see a pop-up menu?"

Customer: "No."

Tech Support: "Ok, sir. Can you tell me what you have done up until this point?"

Customer: "Sure, you told me to write 'click' and I wrote 'click'."

Tech Support: "Did you type 'click' with the keyboard?"

Customer: "I've done something dumb, right?"


Customer: "One of my friends gave me an ImageWriter printer and a keyboard. He said he gave me all the cables, but I can't figure out how to connect them. Am I missing something?"

Tech Support: "Well, a computer would help."

Customer: "You mean this keyboard isn't a word processor?"

Tech Support: "No ma'am, its just an input device."

Customer: "Then I need to buy a computer, right?"

Tech Support: "Yes."

Customer: "Do you think I'll need a monitor, too?"


Customer: "Hi, I'd like to buy a virus."

Tech Support: "Ummm. You really don't want a virus on your computer. What you need is anti-virus software."

Customer: "No, my son told me I need a virus, and that's what I'd like."

Tech Support: "No worries. You don't need to buy a virus -- you can just connect to the internet and download one."


Customer: "I'd like to buy the Internet. Do you know how much it is?"


Customer: "I have a question about the Internet."

Tech Support: "Ok, what's your question?"

Customer: "How do I unsubscribe from a BBS?"

Tech Support: "Uh, well, you should probably contact the people that run it."

Customer: "Well who owns the Internet?"


Customer: "So that'll get me connected to the Internet, right?"

Tech Support: "Yeah."

Customer: "And that's the latest version of the Internet, right?"

Tech Support: "Uhh...uh...uh...yeah."


Tech Support: "All right. Now click 'OK'."

Customer: "Click 'OK'?"

Tech Support: "Yes, click 'OK'."

Customer: "Click 'OK'?"

Tech Support: "That's right. Click 'OK'."

Customer: "So I click 'OK', right?"

Tech Support: "Right. Click 'OK'."
Customer: "I clicked 'Cancel'."

Tech Support: "YOU CLICKED 'CANCEL'???"

Customer: "That's what I was supposed to do, right?"

Tech Support: "No, you were supposed to click 'OK'."

Customer: "I thought you said to click 'Cancel'."

Tech Support: "NO. I said to click 'OK'."

Customer: "Oh."

Tech Support: "Now we have to start over."

Customer: "Why?"

Tech Support: "Because you clicked 'Cancel'."

Customer: "Wasn't I supposed to click 'Cancel'?"

Tech Support: "No. Forget that. Let's start from the top."

Customer: "Ok."


  1. Your site is entirely too much fun. May I link it to mine? I get maybe 50 visitors a day; tiny potatoes, I know, but most of them would appreciate your site.

  2. Yes, of course you can. Thanks for the nice comment.

    by chance did you get these from Computer Stupidity?

    also, would you like another voice actor for if you do more?

    you have a great blog by the way, Ive just spent abou an hour looking through it.

  4. I'm not sure where it came from originally. Someone posted it on my forum and it didn't really "fit" so I popped it over here.

    As for recording stuff. Oh yes please! I used Nero to alter my voice a bit, but I know it sounds naff.
