Technician- Ok sir please stop laughing like a retard. what you are refering to is known as a tilde to people with an iq of less than 10. And if you had a higher iq than 10 which you dont, then it would be a buhguh. There is only one way to fix your problem and that is to take the computer and shove it up your a$$.

n. An alternate term for the ~ (tilde) key on a keyboard.
Used primarily by Help Desk and Sys Admin personell to belittle and insult the intelligence of a normal user by making up a faux term for a simple object.
User: Hello. I'm not receiving e-mail. I think the internet is down for cleaning, can you please help me?
Help Desk: Absolutely. First, I'll need you to hold down the buhguh for 5 hours while I preform intensive diagnostics on your machine.
User: Um, okay.
Help Desk: Are you ready?
User: Yeah. Oh wait, what does the buhguh look like again?
Help Desk: You work for this company and you aren't even familiar with the "buhguh concept"? For your information, it's what typically referred to as the "tilde" in non-technical circles. I'll need you to go to your supervisor immediately and request remedial training for buhguh usage and concepts.
