    I've been in the IT industry for about 5 years and till this day I work with brilliant IT persons that can't distinguish forward and backward slashes!

    Why!!! LOL

    When at my old school we weren't allowed to download any applications of use flash drives(despite the entire network being made up of modern Macs) because the whole network might get a virus.

    When I first got my MacBook I didn't know how to copy&paste...

    So I called Apple for help.



    Facepalm?

    The AppleCare Representative should of acted just as clueless as you about the subject. That would have been fantastic.

    He was a little like that...

    I think it was more disbelief that anyone could be so dense.

    That's great. (I can't think of anything else to write, so I probably shouldn't post anything at all, but I'm going to regardless of how I feel.)

    That reminds me about the time I went to Penn State Main Campus on a tour. The tour was being headed by the dean of IST. We walked past a room full of aluminum iMacs. He said "This is our Mac lab. We are very proud to have it. The other is located across campus." I then noticed they where all running Windows 7 via Boot Camp. I said "Why are they all running Windows?" His reply "Because Macs don't get viruses." I have yet to find out how he became head of the IST College at PSU.

    sadly your question is more than likely not the dumbest they heard. I have a cousin who worked in IT helped and he has some pretty good stories of phone calls. Copy paste, can not get to the internet ect

    Haha, these are both pretty great. Although like rodimus says, I'm sure the bar is pretty low for these things, to the chagrin of IT workers everywhere.
