Customer Mistakes with Technical Support

Customer: “I don’t use DOS. What would happen if I deleted that directory?”

Friend: “Does Windows 98 support Linux?”

Customer: (angrily) “You said I would get 98 windows with this computer. Where are they?”


Customer: “How much do Windows cost?”

Tech Support: “Windows costs about $100.”

Customer: “Oh, that’s kind of expensive. Can I buy just one window?”


Tech Support: “May I ask what operating system you are running today?”

Customer: “A computer.”


Tech Support: “How can I help you?”

Customer: “Well, everything is working fine, but there is one program that is not.”

Tech Support: “What program is it?”

Customer: “It’s called ‘MSDOS Prompt’.”

Tech Support: “What’s wrong with it?”

Customer: “Well, I click on it, a black screen shows up with NOTHING but a sign that reads: ‘C:WINDOWS>’, and it just sits there and doesn’t do anything. I have to turn off the system to go back to Windows.”
