Overheard in a software shop:

  • Tech Support: “How can I help you?”
  • Customer: “Well, everything is working fine, but there is one program that is not.”
  • Tech Support: “What program is it?”
  • Customer: “It’s called ‘MSDOS Prompt’.”
  • Tech Support: “What’s wrong with it?”
  • Customer: “Well, I click on it, a black screen shows up with NOTHING but a sign that reads: ‘C:\WINDOWS>’, and it just sits there and doesn’t do anything. I have to turn off the system to go back to Windows.”
