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…

comment

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!

Confirming the Confirmation is Confirmed

Sometimes, Wednesdays start off a little weird….

ME: Hey, the ExportCD job has been running for 11 hours. It should only take an hour and a half….

Genius-Developer-Guy: Yep, sounds like a problem. *Quickly walks out the door…*

Well…at least we’ve confirmed there’s a problem.

iLive vs. iDead

Statement of the day….

“People keep calling wanting to talk to a live representative. I really have the urge to pass them off to a dead one!”

I have often wondered if I’ve reached a living, or dead, representative when calling customer service. I now have the answer!

Is it possible I’m living in an episode of iZombie and I didn’t know it….??

Email of the Day

The Randomness of work email….

From: Administrative Assistant

Subject: trunk open in bad wind

There is a Gray Honda in the parking lot whose trunk is a jar

Here I always thought a trunk was a trunk, and a jar was a jar. Now a trunk can be a jar? What’s next a tire can be a spare? 😉

Life is short, laugh at the little things!
