IF COMPUTERS HAD PERSONALITIES...
Command not found. Try retyping
I don't understand DUR. Do you mean DIR?
Now, that's not quite right is it? Let's try again; this time, use
the manual that the nice salesperson gave you when you bought me.
I'm so very, very sorry but I don't understand that. I'm sure it
was my fault, but if you would please try again I'll do my best.
What makes you say that?
C:\> A TYPING MISTAKE
How long have you been making these mistakes?
C:\> OH, BANANAS
Do you like bananas?
C:\> I LOVE THEM
Why do you bring up the subject of love?
May I help you please?
I'm sorry but that command is not available at this time.
Have a nice day.
Will that be an MS-DOS directory?
To read here, or for printout to take away?
Thank you. Have a nice day.
Don't bother me with trivial requests -- I'm busy.
Ha! A mistake! I'm sure you meant to say FORMAT, so that's what I'll
Well, Look who's made a mistake then. Very unusual, I don't think.
Not unless you give me a 300Mb hard disk to live on.
Abuse will get you nowhere
