Techy Fun: What do I enter in the box I just emptied?

As I’m in the process of slowing shutting down other sites I’ve worked on (due to time constraints), I’m reposting them here. Here’s an article from “Behind The Frontline” which was going to be a cross between I Work With Fools, Worse Than Failure and Dilbert.

*Ring Ring*

Me: Hello, tech support.
Peon: I’m just trying to set “X” up on my system
Me: Yes
Peon: I put the new domain name in the box labelled “domain name”
Me: Yes…
Peon: It then automatically put something in the box labelled “Directory”
Me: Yes…
Peon: So I emptied that box.
Me: Ok…
Peon: But what do I put in the box labelled “Directory”
Me: Whatever the system automatically put in there.
Peon: Ok. Thank you.

Why didn’t he just leave it as it was?
