A client of mine: why is my computer so slow?

Me: ill take a look...

Client: is it a virus?

Me: no your computer is crazy old.

She was given a pc with an AMD athlon 800mhz cpu, 128mb ram, and I kid you not, a 28.8k modem :s.

Apparently her friend told her it was a power pc lol

I was always nagging my friend to let me root his phone but he always rejected. Now, whenever I want to use it, just to make a call or text,

"If you start rooting it, I'm gonna kill you!"
Some phones used to be able to be rooted without a computer, but most nowadays pretty much need to...

I used to get this type of response from people all the time. Back when I was modding motos, people wouldn't let me use their phones because they thought I was gonna "hack them and put monitoring software on them." The things people think we do...

Haha. I offer free computer help to anyone by phone, so someone called me today.

Hi, my computer is not working as good as before. It won't turn on.

--What kind of computer is it?

Its a white one with 2 holes in the front. They are green and pink.

--No, I mean what brand/model is it?

Its a Dell Studio, I got it 4 weeks ago.

--Have you tried reconnecting all cables together?

Yeah, everything reconnected but it won't start

--Can you please send me a picture of the backplate of the computer? I need to see the exact model number so I can help you out here.

Oh, I can't, my WiFi wasn't working since morning

--Do you know why it isn't working?

There was no power, so I couldn't turn the internet on.





I hanged up the phone and LAUGHED hard

My old dear still panics if I say just close the window...
Me- just shut it off I'm finished
Her- minimize it?
Me- no, close it off by clicking the red X that say close when u hover over it
Her- how do I that?
Me- for ****s sake, it's the same red X u use to close every single tab or page. We then have to go thru what tabs are, again. It doesn't matter how many times I tell/show her she still doesn't get it!!!

She wonders why I lose my patience. Dont get me started on eBay & PayPal!!!

Today someone called as usual and asked a question:

"How can I get a higher ping? My friends have lower internet speeds and they are getting much higher pings with better scores. I have a 100mbps internet."

I just didn't know whether to laugh or cry

    M = Me

    (MSN conversation)

    F - How do i (something, can't remember)
    M - Open your browser.
    F - What's that?
    M - It's your internet browser
    F - Internet browser?
    M - Yes
    F - Where do i find that?
    M - Fine, open Internet Explorer
    F - I've opened Google. Where do i find Internet Explorer?

    Me: *showing my friend Google Wallet*
    Friend: Woah! That's so cool. Can you put that on my iPhone?
    Me: Nope, it's only for some Android phones
    Friend: Don't lie to me! There is nothing an iPhone can't do that an Android can!
    Me: .... Ohh, I'm sorry. Can I see your phone, I might be able to get it?
    Friend *hands over phone*
    Me: *takes a look* I'm sorry man, you're getting an ID 10 T error. It affects all iPhone users.

    So can't you just Photoshop the video to be HD?

    So today I went to a supermarket where they know me just a little too well. And while I was ready to check out the terminal suddenly broke down with an unknown error.

    A moment later the manager comes over to see if he can do something. Immediately he looks at me and with an exasperated sigh says... "Please tell me you didn't root it."
