Steve And Muffin’s Monday Smiles. #18

Hi everyone and here we are, back with more smiles and chuckles for you to (hopefully) enjoy! Please feel free to laugh if you want. So, here we go…

===========

If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their famous sketch, “Who’s on First?” may have sounded something like this:
Costello calls a computer store to ask about a computer. Abbot answers the phone.
Abbott: Super Duper Computer Store. Can I help you?
Costello: Yes. I’m setting up an office at home and I’m thinking about buying a computer.
Abbott: Mac?
Costello: No, my name’s Lou.
Abbott: Your computer?
Costello: I don’t own a computer. I want to buy one.
Abbott: Mac?
Costello: I told you, my name’s Lou.
Abbott: OK then, what about Windows?
Costello: Why? Will it get stuffy in there?
Abbott: No. But do you want a computer with Windows?
Costello: I don’t know. What will I see when I look at the windows?
Abbott: Wallpaper at first.
Costello: Never mind the windows! I need a computer and some software.
Abbott: Software for Windows?
Costello: No! On the computer! I need something I can use to run my business, write proposals and track expenses. What do you have?
Abbott: Office.
Costello: Yeah, for my office. I told you that. Can you recommend anything?
Abbott: I just did.
Costello: You just did what?
Abbott: Recommended something.
Costello: You recommended something?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: For my office?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: OK. What did you recommend for my office?
Abbott: Office.
Costello: Yes, for my office!
Abbott: I recommend Office with Windows.
Costello: My office already has windows! OK, let’s just say I’m sitting at my computer and I want to write a proposal. What would I need?
Abbott: Word.
Costello: What word?
Abbott: Word in Office.
Costello: The only word in office is office.
Abbott: You need the Word in Office for Windows.
Costello: Which word in office for windows?
Abbott: The Word you get when you click the blue “W.”
Costello: I’m going to click your blue “W” if you don’t give me some straight answers. What about bookkeeping? Do you have anything I can use to track my money?
Abbott: Sure, Money.
Costello: That’s right. What do you have?
Abbott: Money.
Costello: I need money to track my money?
Abbott: Yes, and It comes bundled with your computer.
Costello: What comes bundled with my computer?
Abbott: Money.
Costello: Money comes with my computer?
Abbott: Yes. No extra charge.
Costello: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much do I get?
Abbott: One copy.
Costello: Isn’t it illegal to copy money?
Abbott: We got a license from Microsoft to copy Money.
Costello: They can give you a license to copy money?
Abbott: Why not? They own it!
A few days later)
Abbott: Super Duper Computer Store. Can I help you?
Costello: How do I turn my computer off?
Abbott: Click “START.”

I picked this up years ago, but have no idea where it came from. But I like Abbott and Costello and really enjoyed this one. Hope you do as well! Have a great day and God bless!

    It could have been my story πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή
    Last month I was called for the ELT test which was conducted through a computer and every now and then I was calling the coordinator to guide me how to use a keyboard and mouse, πŸ˜…but I passed the test with flying colors.
    Hope you are having a great time Sir Steve with sweet Muffin 😸😊

    • Hi Saba, nice to hear from you again! I guess you don’t use a computer very much? This story sounded much like me when I first learned how to use a computer. I had a terrible time trying to figure things out!! So glad that you passed the test Saba!!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜»
      Muffin and I are cuddling up inside trying to stay warm these days, and nights!πŸ₯ΆπŸ™€πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή
      Hope it’s not too cold where you are.πŸ€”πŸ˜Ί

      • I use my phone for every work. Downloading documents, submitting forms, taking notes, recording lectures; for everything. When I saw there dated computer I said to myself, “who uses this screen with keyboard πŸ˜…”. Every now and then my hands were going to touch the screen. I took that test as a practice for my screening test which is due in February.
        In fact, am using my phone only for all the studies. But I think I should learn to use a computer πŸ€”
        It’s not very cold just now. Quite bearable!
        Hugs for sweet Muffin πŸ€—
        Stay blessed Sir Steve!

      • Wow, I don’t think I could use my phone for all of those things, I prefer a larger screen to look at. I have a laptop which can be turned over and used by touching the screen too. Normally though I use it the regular way and also use a mouse with it, though it does have a touch pad to use as well. A lot of jobs require using a computer, though most now use laptops, but some still use computers.😁πŸ–₯πŸ’»
        Muffin purrs her thanks for the hug.😺😻
        Have a wonderful day Saba!πŸ˜€
