    I apologise if they have been on before.... Not side splittingly funny but may raise a smile.....

    Samsung Electronics
    Caller: "Can you give me the telephone number for Jack?".
    Operator: "I'm sorry, sir, I don't understand who you are talking about".
    Caller: "On page 1, section 5, of the user guide it clearly states that I need to unplug the fax machine from the mains wall socket and telephone
    Jack before cleaning. Now, can you give me the number for Jack?".
    Operator: "I think you mean the telephone point on the wall".

    RAC Motoring Services
    Caller: "Does your European Breakdown Policy cover me when I am
    travelling in Australia?".
    Operator: Doesn't the product name give you a clue?

    Caller (enquiring about legal requirements while travelling in France):
    "If I register my car in France, do I have to change the steering wheel  to the other side of the car?".

    Directory Enquiries
    Caller: "I'd like the number of the Argoed Fish Bar in Cardiff, please".
    Operator: "I'm sorry, there's no listing. Is the spelling correct?".
    Caller: "Well, it used to be called the Bargoed Fish Bar but the 'B' fell off".

    Then there was the caller who asked for a knitwear company in Woven.
    Operator: "Woven?. Are you sure?".
    Caller: "Yes. That's what it says on the label - Woven in Scotland".

    Caller: "I'd like the RSPCA please".
    Operator: "Where are you calling from?".
    Caller: "The living room".

    On another occasion, a man making heavy breathing sounds from a phone box told a worried operator:
    "I haven't got a pen, so I'm steaming up the window to write the number on".

    Computer Capers
    Tech Support: "I need you to right-click on the Open Desktop".
    Customer: "OK".
    Tech Support: "Did you get a pop-up menu?".
    Customer: "No".
    Tech Support: "OK. Right-Click again. Do you see a pop-up menu?".
    Customer: "No".
    Tech Support: "OK, sir. Can you tell me what you have done up until this  point?".
    Customer: "Sure. You told me to write 'click' and I wrote 'click'".

    Tech Support: "OK. In the bottom left hand side of the screen, can you see the 'OK' button displayed?".
    Customer: "Wow. How can you see my screen from there?".

    Caller: "I deleted a file from my PC last week and I have just realised  that I need it. If I turn my system clock back two weeks will I have my file back again?".

    British Rail
    Customer: "How much does it cost to Bath on the train?".
    Operator: "If you can get your feet in the sink, then it's free".

    Customer:" I've been ringing 0700 2300 for two days and can't get
    through to enquiries, can you help?".
    Operator: "Where did you get that number from, sir?".
    Customer: "It was on the door to the Travel Centre".
    Operator: "Sir, they are our opening hours".

    The Bank
    Caller: "I would like to borrow £2,000 please".
    Operator: "Certainly, sir. Over how long?".
    Caller: "Three years, please".
    Operator: "OK, sir. That will be £75 per month for 36 months. Is that OK?".
    Caller: "No, not at all. I want it all at once
