    I used to work for Xbox Tech Support, and at least once a week, I would receive a call from someone having an issue with their Xbox, obviously, and when I asked them to actually do something on their console, it would turn out they weren't even around the console! It was one of the most frustrating jobs ever

    I feel your pain, I am a network admin for a small school. I have been there. My favorite story I have ever heard was about a lady that called tech support because her computer was not working. After walking through all the normal steps, check the power cable all that, it was discovered that the power was out... that would make me go crazy.

    I work in tech support and i love it. Sometimes people can be really dumb, yes. But most of the time they are very grateful. I guess i depends on which company and which kind of people you talk to.

    This happens in all call center jobs :) Customer: I would like to make an appointment. Me: That is possible. I've got room for you after tomorrow. Customer: Do you have room for today? Internal Me: WTF did I just tell you?!

    Customer service is the worst!!
    I was working at Dillards in customer service, this lady comes in with a giant bag full of returns and throws it on the counter and says "I need to return these." (Our store policy was that all returns needed to be done in the department they were bought. So for example, womens clothing needed to be returned in womens clothing or kid shoes in kid shoes. Because those employees were trained to see if theres any damage or in some cases, people bought brand names shoes, and then bought knock offs of the same shoe and tried to return the knock offs and have the real shoes or even just sell the real shoes for profit. Yeah that actually happened... a few times) so I tell her "I'm sorry ma'am, all returns have to be done in the original department of which they were bought. "
    She then comments " what?! Since when?!"
    Me: "Its a new policy, ma'am, I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I can call a manager for you if youd like."
    "This is ridiculous! This is why I shop at Nordstrom! You won't have my business!" She grabs her bag and storms off pissed as fuck.

    I worked IT support at a university, and an older (as in 60yo) student called and said they couldn't log in to the system. I check, and the password has expired, so i say: you need to set a new password; just go to apage.uni.tld... I hear a sigh followed by: where's the best parking spot to get there.......

    I'm working in IT and the stuff I've seen and heard is just mind boggling. Example from about 10 years ago (worked at a different company and IT area than today):
    Doing online support via chat:
    1. Customer contacts me and reports some problem with the product
    2. I'm chatting with the customer => customer suddenly claims he is not even online
    I'm sitting in front of my scream and be like "WTF?"
    3. So I ask him how he is communicating with me on the internet in a chat when he is not even online
    4. customer literally responds that he is using AOL...
    I was just done for the rest of the day.....

    I know this isn’t tech support, but in middle school my elective was as a Teacher’s Assistant. So many people were confused by the sheer idea of a computer. I had to teach a kid how to right click with a mouse... i just can’t believe I went back for a second semester

    As a telecom sales guy i love dealing w older people who get bugged out bcuz i don't carry paper... I'm selling technology to you in a digital age, why have cumbersome papers when i can do everything off of my iPad

  • Drakkenmensch Silverflare

    I work phone tech support and I can confirm this is true. Another common thing is people trying to fix a problem by doing something unrelated that can't possibly fix the problem so of course it fails, so when they call they ask you to tell them how to do the unrelated thing instead of fixing the REAL problem. This is how you get people with email password problems asking you how to create an email account when it keeps telling them that this email already exists.

    I worked for Nintendo tech support when the Wii first came out, so yeah, you can probably imagine how many idiot stories I have. there were at least a couple people who didn't realize the Wii had to be plugged into the power outlet to work. not even exaggerating.

    My dad works for dish, like the TV company, and he has to answer calls about technology. This sounds a lot like his work:) Also, one time someone threatened to kill him.
