… after being transferred around to the usual half a dozen or so incorrect locations, including Pro Support in the U.S. and Federal Government Tech Support in Canada, (the Canadian government uses DELL computers?) was that it all had nothing to do with duplicate orders. They just didn’t like the components list down there in Texas. So, they canceled the order and made up another one.
The most painful part is they took out the TV tuner card. There goes Desperate Housewives.
The tech in India who explained this to me said, “But what you’re getting is better! You’re getting Windows 7! Do you know how much it costs to buy Windows 7? Sixty-nine dollars!”
(I have two legitimate copies of Windows XP. I don’t need Windows 7!)
“And you’re getting Skype!”
(Skype is FREE, ding-dong.)
“Why is it going to take another three weeks for the computer to get here?”
“Because it’s a new order.”
“I’ve been waiting 40 days already!”
“Yeah, but that was the old order.”
And then I had to hang up because I felt a scream coming on.
