Back when my HP inkjet died, it took me probably half an hour of 
answering questions, getting interrupted if I tried to get a word in 
edgewise. When they finally asked if I had rebooted and such, I got a 
chance to say "it burst into flames and burned up, filling the entire 
room with smoke and ozone". They only made me answer a couple more 
questions, and skipped the windows stuff after that. But it was over 
half an hour on the phone before I was even allowed to tell them that 
went up in flames.
