Not funny in terms of me mocking this person, but funny that the Pacman thing would create these sorts of problems

That dude is really not very good at tech support.

Not once did he explain that Google occasionally put crap in their logo and that all she has to do is navigate away from the Google page.
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.

That's what he was trying to do Doofy, did you watch the video? If you watched that video how come you didn't watch my Obama controversy video?

I'm starting to think that maybe I should stop having sex with you.

I didn't watch it. And I saw the Pac Man video forever ago.

Okay, well I figured that since you are going to tell me 2394823904823 times that you don't like these videos, I just wanted to know which one you liked the least.

What can I do to make you like me? If I bought you an iPad would you like me?

Yes, I watched it.
The tech guy was useless - that could have been cleared up in two minutes flat but instead he chose to keep repeating "it'll go away tomorrow".
Well, why will it go away tomorrow? What's it doing there in the first place?

Because your Barry controversy vid ain't available outside your country.

Helping old, clueless people with computers over the phone is my idea of a complete hell.

I did it for a while. Hell is in fact inside a Cox communications call center cubicle. I met the devil there as well.
