Working on Windows

Now as I said, I know that everyone hates Microsoft. And a tech. support guy who has to deal with problems all day is the least likely person in the world to think otherwise. But an hour on the phone and he blamed every single pointless test he was doing on instability in Windows when it was fucking Dell hardware that was broken here.

But I decided not to lose my temper. So in a level voice, I explained that I was on the development team that works on Windows and while it might be form of catharsis for him to diss Windows for an hour for a problem that was not due to Windows, it was not fun for me and I just couldn’t take it anymore. I asked to talk to his supervisor or some other tech, so I could move the business along and get back to a more productive state with my Dell laptop, without having the product I worked on insulted in the process.
