This is a question IT Support

Our IT support guy has been in the job since 1979, and never misses an opportunity to pick up a mouse and say "Hello computer" into it, Star Trek-style. Tell us your tales from the IT support cupboard, either from within or without.

Windows XP Racist Edition
We had a teacher at work who had an error come up on her computer when she tried to print anything.

When she phoned us to report it she said the message was very racist and rude to her and she demanded we fix it so it didn't display this message again.

We told her that we can fix the problem but there is no way there is a racist error message within Windows XP and besides, if there was we couldn't change it because that would mean re-writing the Operating System.

She was still adamant that we have to do something about it in the end saying we need to contact the manufacturers and get them to do it A.S.A.P! In the end we just said ok to her and sorted out the issue for her.

The actual error message simply said "unable to print - no printer detected" (or something similar). We still scratch our heads over how this could be in any way taken as racist...
