Operating Systems

por Paula Antunes, em 27.10.10


Do melhor:


  • Tech Support: "What version of Windows are you running?"
  • Customer: "I got the computer in 2003, so I think it's a Windows 2003. Or maybe it's a Windows 2004? I got it late in the year."
  • TS: "Um, ok."
  • Customer: "Is that wrong?"
  • TS: "No, no, that sounds about right. Tell me, would you know what service pack you have for that?"
  • Customer: "Well, when I got to the register, the young man who rang me up said was about the 5th person to buy it. So it might be service pack 5."



  • A girl walked into the computer center where I work. She said she was having problems with her Mac. I asked what kind of Mac she had. In an indignant voice, she replied, "Duh, Intosh."



  • Tech Support: "Do you know what operating system you're on?"
  • Customer: "Hmmm...what would be a good answer?"



  • Customer: (angrily) "You said I would get 98 windows with this computer. Where are they?"



  • A customer called in with modem problems:
  • Tech Support: "Ok, we're going to check your modem settings. First thing we need to do is make sure all programs are closed."
  • Customer: "How do I know if everything is closed?"
  • TS: "Make sure all windows are closed."
  • Customer: "But...I'm in the basement. I don't have any windows here."
  • TS - (Lucky me, I made it to the the mute button in time!)



  • Back in the early days of Windows 95:
  • Customer: "I have Windows Thirty One."
  • Tech Support: "Ok, this program requires either Windows 95 or Win32s. Do you have Win32s on your system?"
  • Customer: "No, I have Windows Thirty One, not Thirty Two."
  • Tech Support: "Windows 3.1 is the operating system. Win32s is a program that makes your computer fast like Windows 95."
  • Customer: "What's Windows Ninety Five got to do with it?"
  • Tech Supprort: "You need either Windows 95 or Win32s to run this."
  • Tech Support: (giving up) "Ma'am, your computer is too old. Buy a new one with Windows 95."
  • Customer: "I've heard about Windows Three Hundred and Eleven. Wouldn't that be better than Ninety Five?"



  • I saw two older looking ladies trying to figure out the computers at a local store:
  • Woman 1: "What is that little trash can on the screen?"
  • Woman 2: "My son says that is call the 'recycle bin'. He tells me when I don't want a Word document anymore and I delete it, it really goes in there."
  • Woman 1: "Why in the recycle thingy? Can't you just erase it?"
  • Woman 2: "Oh no, Word wouldn't work for very long if I did that, I would run out of blank pages."
  • Woman 1: "Why?"
  • Woman 2: "Because it cleans the words off the pages, then sends the blank sheets back to Word so they can be used again. That's why it's called the recycle bin."

também há aquela da sra que liga para a loja onde acabou de comprar o computador, queixando-se de que o 'PEDAL' (aka rato) tava avariado...
