A man received a call from an unknown person who said he was calling from Microsoft Support. Unfortunately, their conversation would only leave the caller confused.


One evening, a man received a call from a guy who introduced himself as Bob Bobson from Microsoft Support. Bob explained that he had been seeing a lot of virus activities from the man’s device.

Surprised, the man asked Bob if he was certain of who he was talking to. Bob from Microsoft replied that they were sure the viruses were from his device since they had had many reports.

After a pause, the man asked Bob how he could fix the virus, and Bob assured him that he could be helped. Then he asked the man if he was in front of his device.

The man then replied, “Yes. I was just about to use it. I’m glad you called.” Bob asked him if he could push the Start button on his device, and the guy replied that it was already on.

Bob then asked the man to click on the Control Panel, and after a bit of pause, the man explained that he could not find that on his system. Bob then asked if he could see a bunch of information above the Start button, and the man replied that he could.

Bob explained that that was the Control Panel. Surprised, the man said he did not know it had a name. Bob asked the man to press on Internet Options. After checking for a while, the man said:

“Yeah, I definitely don’t see any Internet options. I don’t think I purchased that feature. This is just a cheap one.”


Bob replied and said, “They all have the Internet sir. Press the Start button again.” The man finally got it, and Bob told him that they were going to restart the device. Then he asked the man to turn it off.

Shockingly, the man said he did not know how to turn off his device since it had always been on since he got it. Bob explained that the device must have an off button. Bob asked the man how he stops the device when it’s running, and the man noted he often pressed the big button beneath the Cancel/Stop.


Bob then asked the man to press the button, and after a while, he asked the man if the device was off, and the man said, “no. The door popped open.” Surprised, Bob asked if there is a disc inside the door and the man replied that there was a burrito.

Shocked, Bob asked why there was a burrito in the computer, and the man said, “Computer? I thought you said this was microwave support.”
