Hello tech support.

Hello. This is Mr. Fenster. I have your Internet service.

Yes, sir, how can we help you?

Well, I connected with the service okay, but it won't hang up.

You can't disconnect?

No. What should I do?

Sir, I can barely hear you. Are you in front of the computer now?

Goodness no. It won't hang up I told you. I had to go down the road to a pay phone to call.

Well, sir, in an emergency like that you could try turning the computer off.

Why didn't I think of that?
