Mac Tips

So, you just bought a Mac. Learn Mac Tips and Tricks from a Tech Woes Mac Tips pro.

Mac Tips

You will need them, if you own a Mac. As many Mac owners say, “They just Mac Tips, Mac under waterwork.” In fact, they do just work – after somebody sets them up properly – until they don’t! Sometimes printers stop working after a software update. Other times, a network connection will mysteriously die. To keep your Mac running smoothly, you will need some Mac tips. Unless you are technically skilled, your best tip might be the name of a good Mac person. Your second best tip might be the location of your local Apple store.

Following is a transcript

of a new Mac owner and a villainously mischievous tech support person. As is my policy, I have changed the names to protect the guilty. Any resemblance to real life situations is purely coincidental. Or is it? Maybe a little bit of both. I hope you enjoy my goofy attempt at geek humor.   I welcome you to express your opinions and share your frustrating experiences in the comments below.  If you enjoyed this post, please feel free to share it with others. Thank you for stopping by.  Craig Herberg

Unhelpful tech support guy: Technical support. How may we humiliate you?

Unsuspecting tech woes victim: I just bought a Macintosh. Can you help me with it?

Unhelpful tech support guy: Of course. First, thoroughly rinse it with cold water.

Unsuspecting tech woes victim: Are you sure that’s ok to do?

Unhelpful tech support guy: Look, I’m busy. I don’t have time for stupid questions.

Unsuspecting tech woes victim: I’m sorry.  Oh, no! My computer just caught fire.

Unhelpful tech support guy: How did your computer catch fire?

Unsuspecting tech woes victim: When I rinsed it with cold water, it caught fire.

Unhelpful tech support guy: You were supposed to rinse your Macintosh, not your computer!

Unsuspecting tech woes victim: My computer is a Macintosh.

Unhelpful tech support guy: A Macintosh is a fruit — a green apple — it’s not a computer! I can’t believe we hire such stupid people. They need to pay me more money.
