Happy Monday - Computer problems

Notwithstanding all my computer problems my friend Shèlah sent me the following story. (Not being in the mood for computer humour that's one less Christmas card I have to send this year!!!)

Computer problem in Florida / True story

TECHNICAL SUPPORT : Technical Support, how can I help you?

FEMALE CALLER: 'Last night my computer started making a lot of hissing noises at me so I shut it down. This morning when I turned it on the computer started hissing and cracking, then started smoking and a bad smell, then nothing'.

TECH SUPPORT: 'I will have a technician come over first thing this morning.
Leave the computer just like it is, so they can find the problem and fix it, or change it out with another computer. Give me your address; phone number and the technician will be there just as soon as he can'.

When the technician got there, the lady showed him where the computer was,
said what happened to it, ... this is what the technician found wrong.

Take a look at the pictures... YOU WON'T BELIEVE YOUR EYES ...

And you thought YOU had computer problems!!!

The technician told her: ... 'It must have been after the mouse!'
... The woman didn't think it was very funny at all!


  1. My job is to sell hardware to system integrators who then sell our hardware with their software as a complete solution to the end customer. One of my customers sometimes tells me stories about his end user support. There was a lady in a golf club shop who had a problem with the software they had installed. My customer asked her to shut all the windows before restarting the computer. The lady asked, "Can I open the window again after the restart? It is so hot in here..."

  2. That's funny Librarian.
    I was prompted to think this was a staged happening until I realized it was in Florida where all kinds of critters find their way into homes.

  3. OMG I cannot believe that. I hate snakes. Did enjoy reading about in the Limelight. You are so right, blogging is a very personal and should never cause anxiety or any quilt feelings. Of course just life any endeavor in life there is etiquette to follow. All us ladies and gentlemen know that. LOL
