There are no stupid customers, only stupid tech support.

I did work tech support, and also called them often enough to know that most of the time tech support is the problem, not the user.

However, it is the dumb user that keeps many of us in a job! ;)

Since 90% of users can't read whats on the screen I would say they're stupid.

Also typical conversations.

me: Right click please.
me: No I said right click.
me: Right click please you're left clicking.
me: Thank gawd they hung.
me: No I'm afraid theres no such thing as Windows 97.
user: I've got sobig on my mac.
user: Which ones the right mouse button?
user: Sorry I didn't write the error message down.

etc etc

I'd say that the ones that can't remember that to browse start menu you have to move your mouse not only vertically, but also horizontally (user: why the programs menu is dissapearing again when I move the cursor to some item? (moves just to the high of the item in reality...)) are just stupid.

There are a lot of useless brainless techs, but there are a lot of useless brainless customers too. Good techs are hard to find, they often get easily frustrated and leave the company leaving nothing but stupid techs. (which is what happened in my case) So in a way, thop is right.

The problem with most customers is that they leave it ALL to the tech, and that is very frustrating because most of the time the customer has done a particular task many times but trusts that the tech knows better. Ther in lies the problem. The customer calls in and suddenly turns into a zombie leaving the tech to be his/her puppetmaster.

This is probably why I wouldn't make a good tech support over the phone person. When doing over-the-phone "tech support" to family members, I end up sounding like the host of Wheel of Fish from UHF. :)
