Unhelpful tech support guy: Sure. What seems to be the problem?
Unsuspecting tech woes victim: There are two long wires with thingies on the end, and I don’t know where they go.

Unsuspecting tech woes victim: Huh?
Unhelpful tech support guy: Instead of connecting it with wires, you will connect it with blue tooth.
Unsuspecting tech woes victim: How do I do that?
Unhelpful tech support guy: Just go to the dentist and have him give you a blue tooth. Then your GPS will just work.

Unsuspecting tech woes victim: Thank you so much. You make it so easy.
Unhelpful tech support guy: It’s always a pleasure. [Aside] Two years on the job and I haven’t helped a single person. I’m about due for a promotion.
