DECT* Phone Helpdesk

I got a call from Austria one day.

The caller said, "hello. My train doesn't work."
I said, "excuse me?"

"My model train. It's stopped working."
"This is the Helpdesk for telephones," I said. "I think you've got the wrong number."
"Oh no, it's the right number. You see I've been using your phone as a remote control to move my trains round the tracks and it worked fine until yesterday!"

I had to answer him with a straight face. I said, "I'm sorry sir but we do not receive training in how to power model trains with DECT* phones so I'm afraid I can't help you there."

* DECT is brand of phone used in Europe.  Thanks to Shelley Hall for this report.

Tech Support Calls for DECT Phones

Hi,
My name is Shelley Hall.
I have been working at a callcentre in Belgium for over 6 years now so I have one or two stories to tell.

One of the products we are a Helpdesk for is Dect telephones.

I got a call from a woman who had bought one the day before.
"It doesn't work" she told me.
"And you bought it yesterday?" I asked.

"Yes" she said.
"Did you put the batteries in?" I asked
"Yes, but it still doesn't work."
"And did you charge it?"

"Yes" she said, "overnight."
"Is it plugged into the telephone line?" I asked.
"No."

"Is it plugged into the mains, electrical socket?"
"No?"

"Why not?" I asked
"What for? It says wireless on the box. I don't need wires!"

Hard to believe, I know but it's true! This conversation really did take place.
