Once I worked as an operator on an old IBM 370/Model 138 mainframe at a local college. My position had been reclassified to fall into a new area outside of the I/S staff.

One day, my new supervisor entered the room and stared at the air conditioning unit directly behind me. He studied the two flashing lights for a few moments and asked what job it was currently processing. I killed my career by replying, "Actually, sir, it's cooling the room. The computer is over here."

Customer: "Look, look!!!!! Look what it's doing!!! Can you BELIEVE this?? Why is it doing that??"

Tech Support: "Sir, I can't see your computer, what is it doing?"

Customer: "WHAT??? Can't you figure it out?? LOOK AT MY COMPUTER SCREEN!!!!! You can see it, can't you?!"

I was doing Excel support at Microsoft (oh oh ... I said the "M" word ... lol) shortly after Win95 came out. Someone called and needed some help on Excel. He told me he had left the computer for a few minutes, and when he came back, the "devil" had "possessed" his computer. He told me it was bubbling all over the place, and the devil was in his monitor.  I told him to move the mouse. The devil left ...

... It was the screen saver !! LOL !!

Customer: "I can't seem to send any email."

Tech Support: "What are you doing to send it?"

Customer: "I write it down on a piece of paper, slide it into the slot on the front of my computer, and click on 'send mail'."

A blonde woman went out to her mail box and looked in it, closed it again, and then went back into her house. A few minutes later, she went out and looked in the mail box again, then closed it and went back inside, once again empty-handed.

After several more trips, a watchful neighbor raking his grass commented, "You must be expecting a very important letter today!"

"No," the blonde woman answered, looking puzzled, "Actually I am working on my computer, and it keeps telling me that I have mail!"

Bite me !!! LOL
