Tech support: Pick up your keyboard and walk 10 paces back.
Customer: OK
Tech support: Did the keyboard come with you?

A woman customer called the Canon help desk with a problem with her printer.
Tech support: Are you running it under windows?

===============

And last but not least...

Tech support: "Okay Bob, let's press the control and escape keys at the same time. That brings up a task list in the middle of the screen. Now type the letter "P" to bring up the Program Manager."
Customer: I don't have a P.
Tech support: On your keyboard, Bob.
Customer: What do you mean?
Tech support: "P".....on your keyboard, Bob.
Customer: I'M NOT GOING TO DO THAT!

If I hadn't worked tech support for a year, I would think these were ridiculous exaggerations, but I assure you, you hear some crazy things from people!

About 5 years ago, one of my students called me over and asked me to show her where the Any key was that she'd been instructed to press.

After using Homer's immortal phrase as my Windows start-up file for many years, this was the ultimate moment in teaching stupids, sorry - "students", how to use a PC.

You'll be glad to know I was thoroughly professional and simply pointed to the Enter key before rushing outside to piss myself laughing!
