A comment or two will be greeted with warm hands.

Caller: "Hello, is this Tech Support?"
Tech: "Yes, it is. How may I help you?"
Caller: "The cup holder on my PC is broken and I am within my warranty period. How do I go about getting that fixed?"
Tech: "I'm sorry, but did you say a cup holder?"
Caller: "Yes, it's attached to the front of my computer."
Tech: "Please excuse me if I seem a bit stumped, It's because I am. Did you receive this as part of a promotional, at a trade show? How did you get this cup holder? Does it have any trademark on it?"
Caller: "It came with my computer, I don't know anything about a promotional. It just has '4X' on it."
(Btw, this is a true story from a Novell NetWire SysOp)

Sometimes we get into a situation where we curse in mind "Gawd, be a lil smarter, can't u?"
The world is surrounded by idiots and if thats not bad enough, there are books designed to teach people on how to be an idiot! It's called the complete idiot guide. I think the world is a conspiracy by itself! I mean, if you make something idiot-proof, the world will create a better idiot. You will never win. You know why, cause there are always idiots around to spoil everything. The world is too freaking smart! In fact, I think there is some great entity out there who makes idiots all day long to just to frustrate us.

But fear not as there is still some hope! Not everyone is an idiot. So, how do you identify an idiot? I have this general rule that "Idiots are everyone except you!"

Question: "What is the most idiotic experience that you ever had?"


宝茹 said...

I like your general rule. :D

Oh, but I think I'd already have a lot of idiotic experiences--too many to enumerate. :P

Cometh said...

LOL.... Actually not all are exposed to things that some might think is common... LOL..

That is hilarious though.... 4X cupholder.... =p.. I wonder where the cd goes? =p

Princess Eileen said...

OMG, I still didnt get the 4X cupholder until cometh commented. So that makes me an idiot???? *sob*

I wanna keep quiet on my idiotic experience *Image image* Slipping away....

Nux V said...

yay! i wanna b idiot!
my idiotic experience?? hmnnn..perhaps not coz i was daydreaming during tht time..
i got onto the wrong site of escalator when went shopping some weeks ago! So 'malu-fying' when people laughing at my back.

Cometh said...

Heh, no worries.... I dare say nobody in this world knows EVRYTHING...hehehe.. It is just that if you are not exposed to the things that others might think is common, people tend to get the "idiot" feeling... LOL..

And, the 4X is actually the CDROM...when u eject cdrom, u see the hole in the middle right? You can put a cup there... =p

Which leads me to a conclusion that the joke is quite old.... =p..

4X cdrom consider antique now.. =p

keeyit said...

My idiotic experience? Hmm.. give different answers on what my colleagues ask me to do.. :P

Am I daydreaming ? May be.. Haha
