The following is "ALLEDGEDLY" a true story from a WordPerfect Help Line.

The following is "ALLEDGEDLY" a true story from a WordPerfect Help Line. Needless to say, the employee was fired.
"Ridge Hall computer assistance, may I help you ?"
"Yes, well, I'm having trouble with my Word Perfect"
"What sort of trouble sir ?"
"Well, I was just typing along and suddenly all the words went away."
"Went away?"
"They disappeared"
"Humm. So what does your screen look like now?"
"Nothing"
"Nothing?"
"It's blank, wont accept anything when I type."
"Are you still in Word Perfect, or did you get out ?"
"How do I tell?"
"Can you see the little "C" prompt on the screen?"
"Whats a "C" prompt?"
"Never mind. Can you move the cursor around the screen?"
"There isnt any cursor, I told you it wont do anything"
"Does your monitor have a power indicator?"
"Whats a monitor"
"It's the thing that looks like a TV"
"I dont know"
"Well then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes to it. Can you see that?"
"Yes it is"
"When you were behind the monitor, did you notice if there were two cables and not just one?"
"No"
"I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."
"Okay, here it is."
Alright, follow it and see if it's plugged into the back of your computer."
"I cant reach"
"Uh-huh, well can you see if it is?"
"No, it's dark"
"Dark?"
"Yes ma'am, the office lights are off and the only light I have is from the window."
"Well turn on the office lights"
"I cant"
"No? Why not?"
"Because there's a power outage"
"A power---, A power outage? Aha, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing materials your computer came in ?"
"Well yes, there in the closet."
"Good, go get them, unplug your computer system and pack it up just like it was when you bought it. Then take it back to the store where you purchased it from."
"Really, is it that bad?" "Well then I suppose", "What do I tell them?"
"TELL THEM YOUR TOO STUPID TO OWN A COMPUTER"
