Brand Name vs. Generic

And today’s winning conversation….

Caller: “I have a question about my coverage.”

Receptionist: “Okay, let me get you over to customer service.”

Caller: “No, I only want to speak to a generic person.”

And Generic for the win! Brand Name is back on the benches. Maybe next round Brand Name will get its chance.

Makes you wonder….are you Brand Name, or Generic?



Commitment to Commenting

When you’re searching for a solution and find the best code comments…


Although the funniest comments I’ve ran across stated:


This code does something. Once I figure out what is it I’ll use it.


To this day, no one knows what the code does….and no one touches it!

If you’re talking about my comments… You get statements like this:


————Failed attempts to achieve random goals – moving on!————

My commitment to commenting could have me committed…. but moving on!

Didn’t Really Do Anything…

Seriousness is not a job requirement…even from the captain of the ship….

Thanks. Let me know or just CC me when/if you send it to Stacie.

Thanks All (Well, not President Extraordinaire. He didn’t really do anything!)

Correct…..and it will remain that way.


Programming Virgins

All in a days conversations…..

Me: “It looks like a crime scene in here….”

Boss: “All that is missing is the blood splatter…”

Me: “That can be arranged…”

Boss: “Well….who do you propose we sacrifice?”

Me: “Typically, a virgin….”

Boss: “Can you program that..?”

Me: “No, the code for that was broken long ago….”

I wonder if the new AI sex dolls are considered virginal until utilized….?
