This is rather funny! In my tech support days I actually encountered the same kind of thing - a customer who had moved and hadn't gotten their power
turned on yet. The person on the other end of the phone was moving across town, piecemeal, and stated that they wanted to get their computer system
totally unpacked, set-up, and running before they went for another load. When I finally figured out the issue, I politely explained that the computer
would not boot without the electricity being on and the consumer replied:
"But when I bought this I was told there was a battery in it."
The gentleman was not at all happy or receptive when I attempted to explain that the battery, basically, only powered the clock.
Then again it was way more entertaining than 99% of tech support issues, which usually involved the words "I'm assuming you have a very large and full
folder on your desktop labeled something like "Private - do not open"... So we are going to need to wipe your hard drive and PLEASE do not copy any
"media" you have downloaded onto any removable storage - as you will only have the same problems again once you reinstall those files....
People become VERY angry and resistant when you tell them to kill their porn. For some reason our hunter / gatherer genes seem to fixate, in this
modern day and age, to the act of filling such folders.
