A joke of computer nerds

Dear friends on this web site, I am posting a joke which a friend of mine sent to me a couple of days ago. I like it very much, and hope you will also enjoy it. I call this “a joke of computer nerds”.

"Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to
Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began
unexpected child processing that took up a lot of
space and valuable resources. In addition, Wife 1.0
installed itself into all other programs and now
monitors all other system activity. Applications
such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0 , Hunting and
Fishing 7.5, and Racing 3.6

I can’t seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background
while attempting to run my favorite applications.
I’m thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but
the uninstall doesn’t work on Wife 1.0. Please help!

Dear Troubled User:

This is a very common problem that men complain

Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife
1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and
Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING
SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run
EVERYTHING!!! It is also impossible to delete Wife
1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0. It is
impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files
from the system once installed.

You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because
Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your
Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony-Child
Support. I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and work
on improving the situation. I suggest installing the
background application “Yes Dear” to alleviate
software augmentation.

The best course of action is to enter the
command C:APOLOGIZE because ultimately you will
have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system
will return to normal anyway.

Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be
very high maintenance.

Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs,
such as Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills >4.2.

However, be very careful how you use these
programs. Improper use will cause the system to
launch the program Nag Nag 9.5 . Once this happens,
the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0
is to purchase additional software. I recommend
Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0 !

WARNING!!! DO NOT , under any circumstances,
install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3. This application is > not supported by Wife 1.0 and will cause irreversible
damage to the operating system.

Best of luck,

Tech Support"

I was going to answer with a single phrase such as ‘no comment’. But it is a joke after all and we must have a sense of humour, mustn’t we? Besides, I found the exact feminist counterpart of this sexist jest and couldn’t resist sending it. Enjoy it!

Now we have a gender balanced joke here.
Actually, I saw this joke just as a joke of computer nerds. For me this has aspects of professional addiction, rather than sexist nature. However, you have done this safe for readers of different world outlook. Thanks for this Conchita, you are very helpful as always.


There is an “extended” version of this joke, it is located at azcompuguy.com/polyparadise/techsupport.htm and is quite long to be quoted here. Hope you will enjoy!

And there are several other ones “for balance”:


great :smiley:
