(Just something simple with Chuck working...didn't want to post anything spoilery, just in case...)

The phone rang at Chuck's desk and he answered in his usual cordial business spiel, "Hello, you've reached the Nerd Herd. This is Chuck speaking. How may I help you?"

"Oh goodness," began a slightly frantic female voice on the line. "It's my monitor. It just went blank all of a sudden."

"Is-"

"The computer's still on. I see the power light on it and everything but it just won't show anything on the screen."

"It'll be all right ma'am. I'll help you through this," Chuck replied, attempting to calm the lady down.

"Oh, thank you, thank you!" The lady sounded a bit relieved, though still somewhat panicked.

"Let me just ask a few quick questions just to rule out some possible issues, okay? Have you moved the mouse lately?"

"I have, nothing happens."

"Well, are you able to check the connections? See if the monitor is still plugged into the computer?"

"Um...hold on a sec..."

Chuck could hear some rustling papers and what he guessed was the computer being pulled forward slightly on a carpeted floor.

There was a timid "Um" on the other line a moment later.

"Yes ma'am?"

"The monitor came unplugged from the power strip," the lady sheepishly confessed. "So sorry to bother you."

"It's quite all right. And just so you know," Chuck began helpfully, "There are certain power strips that haven't been holding in the plugs too well. I've heard a couple complaints about the-"

He was about to mention a product's name when the lady interrupted him. "Well, thank you...I may purchase a new one. I...sorry again." With that she hung up.

Chuck hung up his phone and noticed fellow that Nerd Herder Anna had arrived back at the desk. "Yet another totally clueless computer user calling?" she asked.

"Monitor came unplugged," answered Chuck shrugging a bit.

"Seriously Chuck. I know you were just trying to be nice. But we both know it's not really a faulty power strip. Some people are too stupid to own computers."
