Funniest Customer Care Conversation EVER!

Answer by Prateek Jain:

Actual dialogue of a former WordPerfect Customer Support employee with a caller:

Customer Support: "Ridge Hall computer assistant; may I help you?"
Caller: "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."
CS: "What sort of trouble?"
C: "Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away."

CS: "Went away?"
C: "They disappeared."

CS: "Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?"
C: "Nothing."

CS: "Nothing?"
C: "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type."

CS: "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?"
C: "How do I tell?"

CS: "Can you see the C: prompt on the screen?"
C: "What's a sea-prompt?"

CS: "Never mind. Can you move the cursor around on the screen?"
C: "There isn't any cursor, I told you, it won't accept anything I type."

CS: "Does your monitor have a power indicator?"
C: "What's a monitor?"

CS: "It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have a little light that tells you when it's on?"
C: "I don't know."

CS: "Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?"
C: "Yes, I think so."

CS: "Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the wall."
C: "…….Yes, it is."

CS: "When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?"
C: "No."

CS: "Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."
C: "…….Okay, here it is."

CS: "Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your computer."
C:"I can't reach."

CS: "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"
C: "No."

CS: "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"
C: "Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle – it's because it's dark."

CS: "Dark?"
C: "Yes – the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window."

CS: "Well, turn on the office light then."
C: "I can't."

CS: "No? Why not?"
C: "Because there's a power outage."

CS: "A power… A power outage? Ah, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?"
C: "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet."

CS: "Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from."
C: "Really? Is it that bad?"

CS: "Yes, I'm afraid it is."
C: "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?"

CS: "Tell them you're too stupid to own a computer."
