A couple of months ago at work one of the secretaries brought a Chinese user down for some assistance with her laptop on the wifi network. The laptop had an English keyboard, but the OS was entirely Chinese.

“Ni hao,” I said, almost entirely exhausting the Chinese I learned at my old job.

“Oh, you speak Chinese!”

“Nope, I just know how to say hello.”

I spent about five minutes trying to figure out what to click, tried issuing English keyboard shortcuts, and finally went the slow point-and-click way through the My Network Places, which I could recognize by its icon.  Five minutes later, we were online.

The user thrust both arms into the air and yelled, “WICTOREEEEEEEE!”
