|Strange Tech Support Tales|
Customer: “What’s going to happen to my computer when the year 2000 hits? Will it just not work anymore, or what?”
Tech Support: “Actually, the year 2000 problem is this: it seems most of the computer code up until recently had been written bumuming that the first two digits in the year of any date were “19.” So basically, some of these applications, when the year 2000 rolls around, will reflect “1900,” rather than “2000.” Of course, there weren’t any computers around in the year 1900, and so your computer will simply disappear.”
Apparently a true story.

Having to say “The address bar is the big white line at the top of your internet explorer, No Ma’am the internet explorer is what you opened when you clicked the big blue E. Yes Ma’am the white bar. Delete everything in that bar. Now type ‘192.’ No, not d-o-t, a period, yes ma’am”
