Senior Computer Skills

Tech support: What kind of computer do you have?

Customer: A white one.
Tech support: Click on the ‘my computer’ icon on to the left of the screen.
Customer: Your left or my left?
Customer: Hi, good afternoon, this is Martha, I can’t print. Every time I try, it says ‘can’t find printer’. I’ve even lifted the printer and placed it in front of the monitor, but the computer still says he can’t find it..
Customer: My keyboard is not working anymore.
Tech support: Are you sure it’s plugged into the computer?
Customer: No. I can’t get behind the computer.
Tech support: Pick up your keyboard and walk 10 paces back.
Customer: OK
Tech support: Did the keyboard come with you?
Customer: Yes
Tech support: That means the keyboard is not plugged in.
Customer: I can’t get on the Internet.
Tech support: Are you sure you used the right password?
Customer: Yes, I’m sure. I saw my colleague do it.
Tech support: Can you tell me what the password was?
Customer: Five dots.
Tech support: What anti-virus program do you use?
Customer: Netscape.
Tech support: That’s not an anti-virus program.
Customer: Oh, sorry… Internet Explorer..

    Oh my COD, those are so funny.I laughed out loud for sure. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a great day.

      They are funny indeed. 🙂

    I have to say that when I started with the computer I called the Tech Support and I probably did something silly like that. I was a ditz when I started but now at least I can talk to him. Ha,ha,ha.
    Have a wonderful Thursday Sandee. See ya.

      I know I did some weird things in the beginning too. 🙂

  5. June 25, 2015 at 5:34 am

    Those are cute. I'm not sure if I've ever seen computer jokes before.

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:10 am

      There are lots of them out there, but a friend sent me these and I laughed out loud. 🙂

  6. June 25, 2015 at 5:55 am

    Bless their hearts, but at least they are trying…very trying! Thanks for the smiles.

    Big hugs, honey…

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:11 am

      I Iove your play on words. 🙂

    How about the person told to press any key claiming he could not find an "any" key.

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:11 am

      Well, there is that. It's like calling nine eleven and folks can't find the eleven. 🙂

    Tech support: I want you to get a box, put the computer in it, an mail it back to the manufacturer, because you're to stinking stupid to own a computer! 🙂 I've had days when I should have mailed it back.

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:12 am

      Bwahahahahahah, me too. Me too. 🙂

    Oh if you only knew how true some of this crap really is!!! Being in IT is fun and frustrating at the same time.

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:15 am

      When it's fun it's fun and then when it's not one should write a book. I'm just saying. 🙂

  10. June 25, 2015 at 6:37 am

    And welcome to the world of my husband! This is what he does all day and you would be incredibly amazed that this behavior goes on at every age!

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:16 am

      I know it does, but this bunch was for the seniors. 🙂

  11. June 25, 2015 at 6:47 am

    funny, may be generation gap.
    Have a great day!

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:16 am

      Could be just that. 🙂

  12. June 25, 2015 at 7:22 am

    It's not so funny if you do it daily for a living. I don't do it anymore so it is funny.

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:16 am

      I hear you. I've known IT folks that can tell some pretty frustrating stories. 🙂

  13. June 25, 2015 at 8:53 am

    Bless their patience with the computer illiterate such as myself. I make it a point to always be polite with any customer service rep I come across. Same with cashiers, servers, you name it. In my family, we were raised better than some of the rear-ends my girls have to deal with everyday.

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:17 am

      I can get by and that's about it. Nothing much in my bag of tricks. 🙂

  14. June 25, 2015 at 9:07 am

    oh lordy! Hopefully I never get that bad! Have a lovely day with Zane and LB!

    • June 25, 2015 at 11:17 am

      You won't honey, you won't. 🙂

  15. June 25, 2015 at 10:54 am

    Well, what do you expect? If they knew what they were doing, they wouldn't be calling for help, would they now?


    • June 25, 2015 at 11:18 am

      This is true and I know I've asked some pretty stupid questions in my early days. 🙂

  16. June 25, 2015 at 12:23 pm

    these sound so much like my husband that it is scary lol

    • June 25, 2015 at 12:24 pm

      My hubby is way, way more computer literate than I am. 🙂

  17. June 25, 2015 at 2:11 pm

    I have a couple friends like that. c-)

    • June 25, 2015 at 4:49 pm

      I do too. I've one that don't even know how to turn a computer on. 🙂

  18. June 25, 2015 at 3:06 pm

    thankfully I never have to call tech support with computer problems. Wade can usually figure everything out himself.

    • June 25, 2015 at 4:50 pm

      You're a lucky gal. We have a computer guy for the big stuff. The little stuff we usually can handle. 🙂

  19. June 25, 2015 at 4:21 pm

    Don't you just love tech support especially when they try to speak English!

    • June 25, 2015 at 4:50 pm

      You can ask for someone that speaks English well. They will transfer you. 🙂

  20. June 25, 2015 at 7:15 pm

    hahahahahahahaha!!!! laughing out loud here…"can't find the printer"!!! hahaha 🙂 Thanks for this Sandee 🙂

    • June 26, 2015 at 10:53 am

      Bless their hearts. 🙂

  21. June 25, 2015 at 8:25 pm

    Although my knowledge in technology may be little, thankfully I am not that bad. Absolutely hilarious!!! Thanks so much for the laughs, Sandee! 😀

    • June 26, 2015 at 10:54 am

      You're most welcome Linda. 🙂

  22. June 25, 2015 at 9:23 pm

    they are still out

    • June 26, 2015 at 10:54 am

      Yes, they are still out there Phil. Great to see a comment from you. 🙂

  23. June 26, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    I liked the keyboard one. The tech guy has probably had to ask that one before.

    • June 26, 2015 at 3:37 pm

      I'm sure you're right Binky. These folks work mighty hard don't they. 🙂

  24. June 26, 2015 at 10:35 pm

    I can actually imagine just about everyone of those really happening. So funny.

    • June 27, 2015 at 7:08 am

      These and more Rhonda. 🙂
