Tech Support Monday ~ 6-4-12

Another week has flown by, the market is still alive and doing well and here it is Monday morning again. School is out in Austin..the summer fun begins!!

While you’re waiting for your first cup of coffee to brew I thought I’d provide some levity to start the week!

Customer: “My computer crashed!”

Tech Support: “It crashed?”

Customer: “Yeah, it won’t let me play my game.”

Tech Support: “All right, hit Control-Alt-Delete to reboot.”

Customer: “No, it didn’t crash -- it crashed.”

Tech Support: “Huh?”

Customer: “I crashed my game.  That’s what I said before.  I crashed my spaceship and now it doesn’t work.”

Tech Support: “Click on ‘File’, then ‘New Game’.

Customer: (pause) “Wow! How’d you learn to do that?”

Good morning, Dorie. They really try to make computers idiot proof. This goes to show you that the world is breeding smarter idiots...
