Tech Support guys really do get those calls once in a while.

I remember years ago when one of my colleagues got a support call and was trying to help the lady on the other end of the call "...so move the mouse to the bottom left corner of the screen..." after a while he realized she was not able to open the Start menu because she had lifted up the mouse and was pressing it against the monitor... He had to put her on hold so he could try to compose himself while laughing like a hyena Big Grin | :-D

He also told me, that sometimes when he was guiding someone through steps like rebooting the computer and he suspected they did not understand what to do and just pretended to follow along, he would ask them to pull the power plug out of the wall and tell them to blow on the plug to make sure they got all the dust cleaned off of it. Unsure | :~
