Tech Support's Greatest Hits

David Pogue has a great blog post today. He collected some of the most ridiculous tech support calls ever. He's got a bunch in the post, here's one of my favorites:

Caller: Hey, can you help me? My computer has locked up, and no matter how many times I type eleven, it won't unfreeze.

Agent: What do you mean, "Type eleven?"

Caller: The message on my screen says, "Error Type 11!"

Kinda brings to mind the classic Homer Simpson moment when he boots up his computer and reads the screen: "To start press any key...Where's the any key?"
