Word Perfect Help Line

27 / Януари / 2020

This is a true story from the WordPerfect help
line. Needless to say the help desk employee was
fired; however, he/she is currently suing the
WordPerfect organization for "Termination
without Cause". Actual dialogue of a former
Word perfect Customer Support
employee:

"Ridge Hall computer
assistant; may I help
you?"

"Yes, well, I�m having
trouble with WordPerfect."

"What
sort of trouble?"

"Well, I was just
typing along, and all of a sudden the words went
away."

"Went
away?"

"They
disappeared."

"Hmm. So what does
your screen look like
now?"

"Nothing."

"No
thing?"

"It�s blank; it won�t
accept anything when I type."

&#34Are
you still in WordPerfect, or did you get
out?"

"How do I
tell?"

&#34Can you see the C:
prompt on the screen?"

"What�s a
sea-prompt?"

"Never mind. Can you
move the cursor around on the
screen?"

"There isn�t any
cursor: I told you, it won�t accept anything I
type."
