  • Customer: "I just got your Internet in the mail today..."
  • Customer: "I just downloaded the Internet. How do I use it?"

  • Customer: "Will the Internet be open on Memorial Day tomorrow?"

  • Customer: "The Internet is running too slow. Could you reboot it please?"

  • Customer: "I have a problem with my Internet. Anyone know how to get the screens smaller?"
  • Customer: "What do you mean I have to pay for Internet access??"

More stories from Customer Support Staff

Some people pay for their online services with checks made payable to "The Internet."

Had a guy call just recently, asking how to get to the Internet through a word processor.

I got a call from an administrative assistant in our office. She said when she opened Netscape it was smaller than normal, so she could not see the entire Internet.
