I had one guy slam his new desktop down on the counter so hard I thought the cards would come loose and proceed to bitch that the power switch just had a line on one side and a dot on the other, how the fuck was he supposed to know what was on and what was off. Seriously. No shit.[/quote]
I congratulate you on your self restraint in that situation. I’ll bet you were thinking: “You are too stupid to live”
Best tech story ever. A nerd friend of mine was speaking to a co-worker and casually mentioned that they could not use a microsoft mouse pad while running a Mac as a MS mouse pad is not compatible with a Mac. I shit you not.[/quote]
Not to be that dick that one ups everyone but… customer calls yelling about how this is the worst operation ever and how we are incompetent because after 6 support calls we have been unable to solve his issue. The issue? Oh everything he typed on his server was in caps. Oddly enough so were all his support tickets. When he could enter them that is. Most of the time our shitty system wouldn’t let him login. Something about incorrect password but he’s sure he typed it right. I was the support desk manager at that point so I got to deal with his rage. It was actually a very good call. After a while in helpdesk type jobs you start to enjoy the angry calls.
Customers say the darndest thi gs
Edit: these are server admins so they should at least know about caps lock
