Sometimes I get really annoyed when I make these support calls. There’s always a lag time of like 0.3 milliseconds and I could finish a biscuit in that amount of time. But what really pisses me off is the accent. The accent that make technical support a lot more technical than it supposed to be. Whatever happen to your friendly support people? They’re probably in a bloody call center in India. Anyway, here are some video clips of people’s experience with call centers that might just make you go what-the-ahem.

I can believable, like a little girl. As long as this doesn’t happen to me, he’s the funniest call center salesman. The salesman is in Panama.
Here’s one from Microsoft support center. I don’t know what he’s talking about.

The Microsoft support personnel is probably from India. Here’s a video of what call centers do in India.

Well, if you have a computer problem, consider this – unplug it and plug it right back. Sometimes, you don’t really benefit from calling call centers. If you’re a novice computer user, you probably can’t convey your computer problem in the right terms and the support fellow from India tries to tell you to check if your power button is on. He probably is laughing with his colleagues after he puts down your phone call. Should you be an expert computer user, calling support lines is like teaching the call center support personnel something new.
So you know what – forget it. If you have a problem, go to your expert computer friend. Buy him or her lunch of something and ask them for help. No strange accent. No lag.
