Well, yea. Considering there is an infinite number of them.

Yeah. That was kinda my point.

It's wise to remember how easily email -- this wonderful technology -- can be misused, sometimes unintentionally, with serious consequences.

Consider the cand was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email.

Unfortunately, when typing her address, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher's wife whose husband had passed away only the day before. When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.

At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:

"Dearest Wife, Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow. P.S. Sure is hot down here."

lol @ the sure is hot down here part

Not a joke, but along the same lines as some of the stuff from this post.

I used to work for a horrible contractor doing T3 tech support for Verizon Wireless (Without the tools we really needed to fix problems on the switch and such
I pray to what ever force is out there that none of you ever have to call Motorola tech support.

Got a call from some small company's IT guy wanting to set up a couple of Motorola droids on their Exchange server.
According to our policy we weren't even supposed to bother setting these up.

Anyway, we went through the process of setting it up on both droids. One of them worked like a charm. Everything was perfect. The other... not so much.

I forget what the actual issue was, since it was quite some time ago, but after 1 1/2 hours of trying to figure it out, we said to hell with it and called Motorola tech support. Here's how it went down.

*10 minutes going through the automated system*
*30 minutes on hold waiting to talk to someone, finally got someone, and after all the introductions and codes given...*
Moto1: So whats the problem?
Me: We've got two droids, and we're trying to get them set up with an exchange server. One is working great, the other only one feature is working.
Moto1: Sir, the Motorola Droid does not support Exchange servers.
Me: Yes it does, I just said it's working perfectly on one phone. We checked all the settings multiple times, wiped the phone, did everything again, and its still not working.
Moto1: Sir, the Motorola droid doesn't work with exchange servers.
Me: I just said we've got it working on one phone. If it didn't support it, how would it be working?
Moto1: It sounds like the phone you say its working on is broken, I'm going to transfer you to the next tier of tech support.
*Another 30 minutes on hold, intro's spewed, etc*
Moto2: The previous tech support specialist told me what your issue is sir, and he is correct. The motorola droid does not support exchange servers.
Me: I'm going to hang up now. Bye.

Couldn't get it fixed, company policy wouldn't let me do much else, so I sent the guy a new droid.
tl;dr - Motorola tech support is pretty stupid. This coming from tech support for VZW (We were pretty stupid too)

I remember reading an article about tech support in 2600 once. They're job is generally to follow strict scripts and boot you off to the next "tier" as soon as you ask about something not present in their script. Whether or not this is totally accurate is beyond me, but it sure seems like it when you call support places.

From what I gathered while working at the location I worked, a lot of areas do have a script. However, for tech support it doesn't really work that great. Even more so if part of your job is to provide a decent customer service experience.

One of the few things that Verizon Wireless does perfectly when it comes to tech support is the Customer Service.

You can also tell if they're on a script by how often they say things like "Hmm" "Huh" "umm", and things along those lines.
They get docked points every time they say or make any noise that isn't in the script. Docked points mean fewer bonuses, worse scores on your CSTS ((Call back surveys)), and the possibility of losing your job.

And, sadly the reason it seems like that, is most people doing tech support should NOT be doing tech support.
At the place I worked at, half the people there couldn't tell you anything about a computer. Had no idea what OS a phone was running.
