WHAT IF PEOPLE BOUGHT CARS LIKE THEY BUY COMPUTERS?

General Motors doesn't have a help line for people who don't know
how to drive, because people don't buy cars like they buy computers, but
imagine if they did....

---------------------------------------------------------------

HelpLine: "General Motors HelpLine, how can I help you?"

Customer: "I got in my car and closed the door and nothing happened!"

HelpLine: "Did you put the key in the ignition slot and turn it?"

Customer: "What'* an ignition?"

HelpLine: "It'* a starter motor that draws current from your battery
and turns over the engine."

Customer: "Ignition? Motor? Battery? Engine? How come I have to
know all these technical terms just to use my car?"


---------------------------------------------------------------


HelpLine: "General Motors HelpLine, how can I help you?"

Customer: "My car ran fine for a week and now it won't go anywhere!"

HelpLine: "Is the gas tank empty?"

Customer: "Huh? How do I know?"

HelpLine: "There'* a little gauge on the front panel with a needle
and markings from 'E' to 'F'. Where is the needle
pointing?"

Customer: "It'* pointing to 'E'. What does that mean?"

HelpLine: "It means you have to visit a gasoline vendor and purchase
some more gasoline. You can install it yourself or pay
the vendor to install it for you."

Customer: "What? I paid $12,000 for this car! Now you tell me that
I have to keep buying more components? I want a car that
comes with everything built in!"


---------------------------------------------------------------


HelpLine: "General Motors HelpLine, how can I help you?"

Customer: "Your cars suck!"

HelpLine: "What'* wrong?"

Customer: "It crashed, that'* what wrong!"

HelpLine: "What were you doing?"

Customer: "I wanted to run faster, so I pushed the accelerator pedal
all the way to the floor. It worked for a while and then
it crashed and it won't start now!

HelpLine: "It'* your responsibility if you misuse the product. What
do you expect us to do about it?"

Customer: "I want you to send me one of the latest version that
doesn't crash any more!"


---------------------------------------------------------------


HelpLine: "General Motors HelpLine, how can I help you?"

Customer: "Hi, I just bought my first car, and I chose your car
because it has automatic transmission, cruise control,
power steering, power brakes, and power door locks."

HelpLine: "Thanks for buying our car. How can I help you?"

Customer: "How do I work it?"

HelpLine: "Do you know how to drive?"

Customer: "Do I know how to what?"

HelpLine: "Do you know how to drive?"

Customer: "I'm not a technical person. I just want to go places
in my car!"
