    User sends an email to everyone

    "I am looking for a file"

    I send a reply a little while after asking if they have found it, they say no, I say "i can run a search on the server for it if you want"?

    user replies "No thanks, its a hard copy"

    needless to say the search isnt needed.

    Someone asked me to email them a hardcopy of a project the other day.

    I had to get drunk to get over that

    Believe me, I had to leave the room mate.

    I love it when clients try and use terminology and get it completely wrong. Geez, I don't work in IT and I shudder to think what you poor sods have to put up with :eek:

    Funny phone call I took a few weeks ago...

    Me: “Hello, blah blah... .. how can I help?”
    Customer: “Hi, my phone isn’t working”
    Me: “Sounds fine to me!” :biggrin

    <Much laughing from me and the customer>


    Turns out the voicemail wasn’t working, I told her to phone the company that supports the phone system and not the company that supports the IT system. :rolleyes: :biggrin

    Not sure how true this one is, but I read it somewhere recently "as true" experience.

    ...

    Guy at the pizza place answers phone.

    Customer asks for pizza order.

    Pizza guy takes order and asks if customer wants to collect or have order delivered.

    Customer tries to be clever glowing with confidence in their IT expertise, and very creatively requests for pizza to be sent as an attachment via an email!

    :biggrin

    OK, to add to this and I swear this is true: -

    One of the solicitors managed to knock a Legal Clerk's CRT monitor to the floor and is was knackered. Luckily I knew where a spare was and I was in the process of setting the monitor up when the Legal Clerk arrived in the office and I explained what had happened. The response was something on the lines of: -

    I sort of stopped, looked up and patiently explained that the monitor was just a window into the computer, at which point she went bright red and uttered something on the lines of DOH :oops:

    It's surprising how stupid so called educated people can be :dry
