We laugh because we care

I thought I'd heard every tech support horror story, but this one, from today's Dilbert Newsletter (DNRC), is new to me and worth a chuckle:

A manager who received a new computer asked, "Don't these new computers come with CDROM drives?" I said yes. He insisted that his computer did not have a CDROM drive, but "There is a little drawer that opens at the BOTTOM of my computer, but it won't hold a CD." He had the computer upside down. I would have thought that the fact that everyone else got a "DELL" computer and his said "77ED" would have clued him in.
