Tech : "Press your backslash key. Oh, you don't know the backslash?
Do the normal backslash...but the one that goes the other way."
I told her : Isn't the "backslash that goes the other way" called a "forward slash"?
Even after telling her it was called a forward slash, I still hear her telling people to
"press the backslash that goes the other way."
After I switched to Linux I called my ISP provider to know where I will find a driver for the modem
Me: "Hi, I using Linux, and was wondering if you knew if the modem works under it."
Tech : "Oh, I'm sorry, we only support Windows."
Me: "I know. I was just wondering if you knew if it was possible."
Tech : "But we only support Windows."
Me: "I know, but just to save me some time, have you heard of anyone that got Linux to work with the modem?"
Tech : (getting annoyed) "Why can't you just use IE6/IE7?"
Me: "Uh, wha? It's not a browser, it's a--never mind. Thanks for your help."
