Having worked in a call center for that stuff, I get why they asked if you have. They can't assume all callers are tech savvy. The jokes you hear about how it turns out the computer wasn't even plugged in? Those are true stories.

Hell, there was one woman who called in saying she couldn't get her computer running, and the tech spent nearly half an hour with her before finally asking her to check if the computer was actually plugged in. She asked him to wait a moment so she could go find a flashlight, because the power was out due to hurricane Katrina, and she couldn't see behind the computer without light...

Also, asking you to do it again once you've confirmed you already did it may seem a bit ridiculous, and can be annoying, but sometimes people say yes just to avoid that step, thinking they know that's not the problem.

I worked in a consumer electronics call center, and the unit being unplugged or somehow otherwise unpowered (in the case of battery operated devices) was the problem about 25% of the time, which is more often than one would think. There was once when a guy called in and stated that his TV didn't work, but explained that there was construction nearby. I rightly deduced that the construction workers had knocked out his power, so I had him plug in lamps, etc. to see if the outlet was working. He couldn't get a lamp to work, so I had him go into the kitchen and plug in his toaster. I was about 30 seconds from having this guy make toast on the phone.

You already have over 50,000 points, that's pretty great!
The best way to get well-known is to comment a lot, that way a lot of people will see your comments, then some might go to your profile and upvote your memes.

Even though I have 50,000 points, I'm not even close to the 250th person in all time top imgflip users. I guess I should comment a lot more often lol.

Though points and the leaderboard and stuff don't really matter (at least for me). The best part is meeting people, chatting, etc.

Especially since some customers lie, or think they know more than they do.
