Two lessons from my ISP tech support job :

Me: “Okay ma’am, lets try resetting your modem.”

Customer: “How do I do that?”

Me: “Is there a button on the modem?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “That’s okay. Not all modems have a reset button. We can just unplug it and plug it back in.”

Customer: “Which cord do I unplug?”

Me: “The one that plugs into the wall.”

Customer: “Which one is that?”

Me: “Do you see those larger wires come from the back that go into your computer?”

Customer: “Yeah.”

Me: “None of the wires that look like that.”

Customer: “Oh.. okay. So this small one that says Modem?”

Me: “That’s the one.”

Customer: “What about this other one?”

Me: “What other one?”

Customer: “There’s another thin wire that goes to this other box.”

Me: “That’s for your phone. Leave that one alone.”

Customer: “Okay. So pull out that wire?”

Me: “No. Just–”

Customer: *click*

Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.


Look into my eyes
You will see, what you mean to me
Search your heart , search your soul
And when you find me there, you'll search no more

Yes, that's Bryan Adams. And yes, this video should be attached to wiktionary's "hilarious" entry.

That's it. The zombie apocalypse is imminent, and mathematician have already calculated our chances of survival. Although it may not happen tomorrow, you should remember this quote:
“Only sufficiently frequent attacks, with increasing force, will result in eradication, assuming the available resources can be mustered in time,”.

Customer’s son: “I want a sandwich!”

Customer: “When we want something, we ask politely, remember?”

Customer’s son: “But I want chips!”

Customer: “No, dear, you ask, ‘May I please have some chips?’”

Me: “What will you be ordering today, ma’am?”

Customer: “I want a kid’s meal!”
