We were looking for some naive/innocent/dumb real-world examples of actual end-user support calls that you (or someone you know) have personally experienced recently. We found thousands of funny help desk calls online, but were looking for personal experiences.

The 5 most interesting posts were selected by a panel of Novell judges on March 31, 2011 and the authors of those posts will each receive a $25 iTunes Gift Card.

Congratulations to the winners:

  • Kevin Hurni
  • Ryan Sinnwell
  • Denise Brinkman
  • Jared Freeman
  • Mike Brady
