  • Microsoft Support in Engrish

    I utilized Microsoft support for an issue I had with Office365, and received a request this morning to complete a survey. The VERY FIRST PAGE of the survey was...

    I just wish I could select the language when I get a customer support person on the phone. It always seems to be a foreign national ATTEMPTING to speak Engrish.

    On the OTHER hand, when I had my issue with transferring my Outlook365 accounts for my Church to a "non profit" billing - Microsoft seemed very pleasingly helpful and provided what I would consider proactive support - IN ENGLISH!

      You have to know English to even answer the question of which language you want to take the questionnaire in.

        Laughing... I think the survey is presented to you by default in the language in which your support matter was handled.

              Yup......

              I remember somebody had a dealie on "what if Microsoft had invented the car"....

              one of them was - if the car stalls, remove the engine, then reinstall it.....

              I forget the rest, but they were pretty silly

                I just got a solar light from Amazon. Apparently it is from China. The instruction booklet is in Engrish. It's hilarious. I will try to remember to post some of it when I get home.

                  Found this at work one day when I was looking up product info for a customer. This is the website of one of our vendors.

                      I will rent out the daylight and make a mint! But for you, I will give a discount of only 5 pounds of bacon a day.

                          I just got a disc cleaning kit from Amazon.

                          Not sure if Cow Poke or Rogue wrote the Engrish for this one.
