Things to do if Your Internet Connection Is Down

Things to Do if Your Internet Connection is Down…

1. Open the curtains to see if anything has changed over the past 2 years.

2. You mean there's something else to do?

3. Threaten your ISP with an impeachment vote.

4. Work.

5. Re-introduce yourself to your immediate family.

6. Get that kidney transplant you've been putting off.

If it doesn't nourish your soul,
Don't Keep it.

Sad state of affairs!!!

1. Call my PC fixer guy and tell him to bring his family for a stay until it gets fixed.

2. Reintroduce myself to my husband (I think I have one?)

3. Try to stand up straight

4. Look out the window and see what season it is

5. Watch Johnny Carson

6. See if Clinton got elected for a second term

Call Your Help Desk Line and give silly answers...make them laugh!

For Example:

Helpdesk: What kind of computer do you have?
Customer: A white one...

Customer: Hi, this is Celine. I can't get my diskette
Helpdesk: Have you tried pushing the button?
Customer: Yes, sure, it's really stuck.
Helpdesk: That doesn't sound good; I'll make a note
Customer: No ... wait a minute... I hadn't inserted it
yet.. it's still
on my desk... Sorry...

Helpdesk: Click on the 'my computer' icon on to the
left of the screen.
Customer: Your left or my left?


Helpdesk: Good day. How may I help you?
Male customer: Hello... I can't print.
Helpdesk: Would you click on start for me and...
Customer: Listen pal; don't start getting technical on
me! I'm not Bill
Customer: Hi, good afternoon, this is Martha, I can't
print Every time
I try, it says 'Can't find printer'. I've even lifted
the printer and
placed it in front of the monitor, but the computer
still says it can't
find it...

Customer: I have problems printing in red...
Helpdesk: Do you have a color printer?
Customer: Aaaah...................Thank you.


Helpdesk: What's on your monitor now ma'am?
Customer: A teddy bear my boyfriend bought for me in
the supermarket.


Customer: My keyboard is not working anymore.
Helpdesk: Are you sure it's plugged into the computer?
Customer: No. I can't get behind the computer.
Helpdesk: Pick up your keyboard and walk 10 paces
Customer: Okay.
Helpdesk: Did the keyboard come with you?
Customer: Yes.
Helpdesk: That means the keyboard is not plugged in.
Is there another
Customer: Yes, there's another one here. Ah...that
one does work!


Helpdesk: Your password is the small letter a as in
apple, a capital
letter V as in Victor, and the number 7.
Customer: Is that 7 in capital letters?


A customer couldn't get on the Internet:
Helpdesk: Are you sure you used the right password?
Customer: Yes I'm sure. I saw my colleague do it.
Helpdesk: Can you tell me what the password was?
Customer: Five stars.

Helpdesk: What anti-virus program do you use?
Customer: Netscape.
Helpdesk: That's not an anti-virus program.
Customer: Oh, sorry...Internet Explorer.


Customer: I have a huge problem. A friend has put a
screensaver on my
computer, but every time I move the mouse, it


Helpdesk: How may I help you?
Customer: I'm writing my first e-mail.
Helpdesk: OK, and, what seems to be the problem?
Customer: Well, I have the letter 'a' in the address,
but how do I get
the circle around it?
If it doesn't nourish your soul,
Don't Keep it.
