I showed these questions to my 10-year-old grandson last night, and he couldn't believe how stupid these questions were.

Middie, I'm trying to picture you handing an unpackaged cake to this guy. Did it not occur to him that he had never seen anyone walking through the store with an unpackaged cake? Sheesh!

Oh Barbara it is way too tempting lmao. I have actually told people no and they look horrified until I start giggling and tell them I'm kidding. And yes my manager was standing there when I've done it. She thinks it's hilarious. One of these days I'm going to leave out the I'm kidding part.

"I'm sorry sir, didn't you read the notice on the front of the store that you have to bring your own cake carrier?"

CLIENT: Olay - nothing happened.
ME: What key did you press?
CLIENT: The shift key.
ME: The shift key won't work - press another key.
CLIENT: OK - that didn't work, either.
ME: What key did you press this time?
CLIENT: The caps lock key.
ME: Try this - press the space bar.
CLIENT: Hey - that worked! Why didn't they just say that in the manual?
ME: I don't know, I didn't write the manual ....

This is just one of my first experiences ....

Here are some more tech support war stories others have had.
Mike, you don't want to ever deal with me then. You'd be bald by now. Anytime I call out my husband's name or son's for computer help they duck and run for cover.
