Hell desk to user: 'I know you're wrong. I wrote the software. And the protocol it runs on'


Reverse situation (almost)

Many years ago I was one of two testers on a project. We found a bug, but the developer responsible for that part of the project came back with the classic 'it works on my machine'. At which point the other tester walked up to his machine and proved to him that it didn't work on his machine either. Needless to say we got far fewer 'it works on my machine' responses after that.
