Microsoft Technical Support

Microsoft Tech Support was fun today. My phone was off, so I started communicating with the guy on the other line via the "Notepad" application on my desktop. We had a nice conversations. Here it is:

ME: If you called, could you call again? My phone was off :P. Thanks. It looks like things are good now, though....

HIM: yes... i will call u in other 5 minutes... okie... :)

Sounds great!

thank you :)
installation will be completed in other 5 minutes...
so once its done....u can open office application to activate the copy.... okie... i will guide u

Sounds perfect. I am just glad this was so easy :)

the problem was there was no sufficient permissions to the user account ur using... so i gave permissions to everyone and started the installation, worked fine... also teh downloaded file was redownloaded file

makes sense... This is my first new computer in seven years, so I had forgotten about the permissions... Oh well, thanks for fixing it....WC :)

click on the installation window

illbe go ahead...sorry for interrupting :D

click on close...
product is activated...WOOOOOOW :)

with ur permission can i close the case as resolved


Yep! Thanks. I appreciate it. Should I click on the "Stop Sharing" button?

i will exit from my end... in case u have any query please do feel to reply to the email which i have sent u...and we can work together again.,... :)

Thanks. Sounds great. This was fun, actually.

I admit it is earth shattering for me too :)

What is it like to be a minority and a Republican?

Apparently something like this:

What I wonder is why Republicans just happen to make so many awful comments "in jest?" I look at things like this and recognize the origin of the slur and that it is an attack against the candidate, the president, and Muslims. Yet, Republicans keep these guys around and invite more in every day. I wonder what it is like to be the Republican who is being slurred just because she looks different? How does it feel to have to agree with the large portion of your party who thinks like your attacker? How does it feel to have to admit that the comment was "in jest" and say that you are not offended? How does it feel to have everyone else in the race get a free pass because they are not minorities hated by Republicans. They never have to defend themselves or prove how thick-skinned they are to racial attacks and bias.

I am just wondering...
