This is a question Clients Are Stupid

I once had to train a client on how to use their new website. I said, "point the mouse at that button." They looked at me with a quizzical expression, picked up the mouse and held it to the screen. Can you beat this bit of client stupidity?

A few stories...
Sorry about the length of this, but it's my first post...

Story 1 - Manger calls me over to say that his email signature has disappeared. After looking at the settings and seeing that the signature was still there, politely told him that white text on a white background would not show up...

Story 2 - We recently got new coffee machines (Woo Yay!) and everyone has started ordering by number rather than name (ground filter coffee, 1 x extra strength 1 x extra sugar was getting a bit much when getting a round in). Anyway, i normally just drink cold water so i said to one girl (yes, a manager) I’ll have an 89. 5 mins later she came back with a round of coffees and an empty cup for me, not realising that after you ask the machine for a cup (selection 89) you have to put the cup into a different part of the machine and press the cold water button!

Last one – again a manager… told me that she had a new laptop. Could I tell her how to use it. After spending the past 2 weeks trying to explain how to do simple stuff in Excel I decided to tell her that it works just like a regular PC except that when you want to open a file you select with the mouse pad thingy and then press “deliver”. She said there was no deliver button so I replied they probably shortened the name to save space! Can’t wait for the fallout from that one in the New Year…
