“No one told me I needed a computer to use the internet!” [Comic]


Uh… I suppose the person in this comic could have wanted to use the internet on their smartphone or tablet. Although I doubt a person like this would own a smartphone or tablet.

    Why don’t we turn the tables and let customers tell “their” stories of interactions with tech support geniuses? That would make for good fun reading too.

    Here is mine: in the good old days of my dial-up internet connection I decided to accept the offer of a special price on DSL from my phone company.

    After confirming with them that DSL service was available in my area, I paid and they sent me a connection kit. I did everything that was needed but never got connected. So I called tech support.

    After a 20-minute wait and another 20-minute of confirming my address, etc…
    -tech guy: I don’t see an IP address.
    -me: Are you really sure you service my street?
    -tech: no, I’m not sure; but I should see an IP address.

    After another 20 minutes of playing around the IP address idea:
    -tech: Would you mind if I access your computer to see where the problem is?
    -me: No, go ahead.

    We set up Remote Assistance.

    -tech guy: OK. We are all set. Let me see… You know what? I can’t do it; it’s too slow.
    -me: What’s too slow?
    -tech guy: You have a dial-up connection; it’s too slow for Remote Assistance.
    -me: (mentally) Duh…

    I canceled and went with cable internet.
