And today’s winner goes to…
User: “Help! All my icons are missing!”
Make-it-so-Mike: “There’s no extra charge for that…”
User: “Oh you’re funny! But no, one minute they were there…then I saw a blur and now they’re gone. I was going to reboot but, I didn’t want to break it further.”
Corvette-Crazy and I: *Laughing like crazy*
Make-it-so-Mike: “Let’s go take a look…”
Corvette-Crazy and I: “Soo??”
Make-it-so-Mike: “…she some how hid her icons…”
The look on a users face when something unexpected happens and, IT doesn’t take it as serious as they believe they should…
It is the little things which amuse us.
Statement of the day…..
What exactly makes someone a baby tomato?
Co-Worker explaining IT to another departments employee…
“IT people have it genetically programmed into their brain to say ‘NO!’ to any question.”
So, that’s why I always say no when someone offers me a donut. Here I thought it was just because I didn’t want one….
The statement of the day brought to you by Mr. Corvette-Crazy. Artistic drawing of Mr. Corvette-Crazy courtesy of Magnificent-Marge (she did give him more hair then he generally has – she’s always the optimist!).
And no, he never did give her permission to draw him…but she is a bit of a rebel. 🙂
They say half of the battle is in your head.
Have they been in my head?
Ain’t nobody getting out of there alive…
And today’s statement from Corvette-Crazy while on the phone with Make-it-so-Mike….
“Your desktops weren’t ready. So I reverted. OH! And, your directions have a word wrong!“
The desktops not being ready, and a reversion, eh, no big deal. But, one word wrong in the directions and the world ends!
As I get older, my ability to hold my tongue is ranking up there with my ability to reach things on the top shelf.
I just can’t seem to get either one done.
I may have to start relying on my good looks.
Working along. Writing a query. Headphones on and I hear….
“When you’re done, you have to pull the rubber off. Just grab it at the top. It’s easier to remove that way; and less messy.”
The person then gets up and quietly walks away.
Please tell me I am not the only one who is questioning the contents of the rest of the conversation?
I almost…almost….want to ask who they were talking to…almost!
When IT is in one room. You have the pleasure of hearing things like:
Computer User: “I cannot use my computer!!”
“The computer is just weird! I can’t use it! It’s like wearing a bad shoe.”
So…what exactly is a bad shoe?
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?
