Troubleshooting

I rock at troubleshooting.

Went to print something,
the printer did not even whirr up.

So, Tech Support Q #1 "Sir, is it plugged in?"

DING DING DING! - the answer was NO!

I rock at troubleshooting.

:) At least they didn't argue with you about how they weren't stupid before then realising that no, they hadn't plugged it in...

LOL! I did tech support in college and have way too many stories like this. Probably my best is fixing an inkjet printer by pulling an 7 inch makeup brush out of it...

my favourite was when i got a call late one evening from Hawaii about the The Psychological Corporation's psychometric scoring suite (this particular caller needed to score an evaluation for a Beck's Scale for Suicide Ideation assessment they'd just done). after getting them to read off a registration string from the "About" screen to me, it turned out they were KNOWINGLY using a pirated copy of this $25K piece of software and were pissed off that they had no more uses left on the counter dongle. i offered to reload it for the price of the suite plus the cost of the reload and then explained why. call ended abruptly. oh, best bit: it was a STATE AGENCY calling!

While troubleshooting, I once destroyed my Packard Bell Personal Computer by dropping a screwdriver onto the motherboard - while it was powered on.
