    I do hope that your satire isn't this poorly written. Don't do anything about Indians. That stopped being funny years ago.

    Tech support people are given boilerplate answers for people's questions. There's a possible source for satire.

    Caller: My computer keeps crashing.
    Tech support: Can you check to see if it's plugged in?​

    Haha, I like that!

    Caller: My machine doesn't start up.
    Tech support: Have you tried restarting?​
