You think that's a stupid customer ?
Ha ! :bigsmile:
Once upon a time i was working for the techician at a professional computer company.
customer : "Hi, i have a broken computer. AGAIN. This is the third time in a month i have to return it"
me : "I'm very sorry sir. Can you give me the serial number of the machine ?"
[customer gives serial number]
me : "From what i can see is that on the last two repairs we had to change the power supply. Could you please send it to us so that we can have another look. I'm terribly sorry for the invonvienience"
customer : "Ok , but that's the last time "
So , in a few hours the machine arrives and i take a peek at it.
It's rusted. Not ordinarily rust , but lots of brown rust everywhere from top to bottom. Connecting it indeed shows that the power supply is broken .. again ..
However , i get a little suspicsious at all the rust and i decide to call the customer again.
me : "Could you tell me where this computer is located in your comany ?"
customer : "Sure , it's in the carwash"
me : "Excuse me ? You naturally mean an office next to the carwash or some closed cabinet outside the actual carwash , don't you ?"
customer : "Nono , it's IN the carwash , it controls some of the valves and water sprayers".
At that time i had to put the customer in hold.. stared at the telephone for a couple of minutes , pondering whatever just went wrong in the universe and decided to tell the customer that ordinary computers cannot be used INSIDE a carwash.
customer : "I never knew that , if someone would tell me i'd take more care of it".
And then the battle of customer v.s. computer company began ...
