Most of the time this comic is semi autobiographical. Usually it’s a lot of hyperbole in the service of humour. But today’s comic is a real experience I recently had with trying to replace my broken phone.
Oh I hate when that happens to me for other things… like the internet is out and they want you to submit a support ticket.
sometimes I think they do these things on purpose, just to mess with our sanity! Also, my ARG Volume 2 finally arrived today! That’s my evening sorted! 🙂
Ha, reminds me of a dialog in Win98. “In order to troubleshoot your internet connection, please visit the following website:”
Reminds me of this error message:
Arg in that case I will not laugh at today’s comic.
Heh… Heheh… sorry.
“Please contact your network administrator” .. grr. (NA is now saying gravity test the ..unit)
Also had the phone thing trying to call faults. “Hi, my phone isn’t working and doesn’t have any dial tone. Is it the number you’re calling from now? “
I used to work for a major wireless telecom in the call center. One of my great joys was when someone would call me and say, “My cell phone doesn’t work.”
First troubleshooting step, turn the power off and take out the battery.
When the line goes as dead as my soul in that job, that’s the only happiness I will know that day.
Hehehe… I know that feels bro…
Well what did you break it for? Should have called them before you broke it. 😀
Sad that they’re not joking and fail to realize that many of us only have a mobile phone anymore. Best of luck in getting this resolved.
That’s exactly what is happening to me, except my phone was stolen.
Hey, ARG, I noticed the webcomic is now on Comic Chameleon! It’s a little late with the bit late with the strips, but it’s great that I can check out the comic whenever I want from the app.
Oops, probably shouldn’t mention smartphones after this comic…
Reminds me of the win98 error. It’s like how can I troubleshoot if there is ‘no’ connection. Nice going windows.
I invented that! You are welcome.
