Customer Support: (in a thick Indian accent) “Good morning, this is George from customer support, how may I help you.”

Customer: “Yes, I bought a mail order computer from you 8 weeks ago, and when I received it, the parallel board doesn’t fit.”

Customer Support: “I see, tey turning it off and on to see if the problem goes away.”
