THIS ONE KICKED THE BUCKET
I work for a wireless phone company and received a call from an irate lady who could not understand why she would be billed for "airtime." I told her it's because she exceeded the minutes in her plan, also known as her "bucket," and after that she is charged by the minute. She was still irate. Finally, I asked why she thought she should not be charged for airtime. Her reply, "I wasn't even on an airplane last month!"
SHOULD SHE HAVE CALLED 9-1-1?
I work for an electric company. A woman once called to ask if we could turn off the power to her house because she was now at work and realized she left her curling iron on.

IT'S "SEW" SIMPLE...
An exasperated woman called a tech support help desk saying she couldn't turn on her new computer. After ensuring the computer was plugged in, the technician asked her what happened when she pushed the power button. Her response, "I pushed it over and over again and nothing happens." After a brief interrogation, the tech support rep discovered that the woman thought the mouse was a "foot pedal" similar to the one she used to power her sewing machine.
PRINTERS THAT PLAY HIDE AND SEEK?
A confused caller was having trouble printing documents. He told the technician the computer said it "couldn't find the printer." So he turned the computer's monitor to face the printer and the computer still said it "couldn't find the printer."
NO. 1 FOR TECH SUPPORT
Tech Support: O.K. Bob, it's time to press the "control" and "escape" keys at the same time.

Tech Support: On your keyboard?
Caller: What do you mean?
Tech Support: "P" on your keyboard?
Caller: I'm not going to do that!!!
