team meeting in conference room.
dilbert: we can close the deal as soon as our lawyers tweak a few minor sentences in the agreement.
the boss: how long will that take?
dilbert: probably several years.
the boss: what if i help them?
dilbert: add 3 years.
boss: dogbert, i need you to train asok to fill in for you on tech support.
dogbert to asok: the goal of tech support is to convince the caller the problem is on their end. i do this by recommending increasingly difficult things for them to try. eventually they give up, watch and learn.
dogbert on call: uh-huh... uh-huh... try rebooting your computer. now try it again while holding control -escape-space bar- delete for exactly 27.3 seconds. no luck? try looking at your computer's binary code to find any zeros and ones that are out of order.
dogbert: and he's gone.
