|What a crazy ass week, and it's only tuesday. We had electrical storms pound us pretty hard at work yesterday, an maybe more tonight / tomorrow. We lost one workstation to lightning that I had to frantically find a cold spare for, (thank you BOFH for that tip about having spare workstations in your personal basement for sale), and a phone system that has taken on a dark sense of personality. |
Imagine your customers calling the toll free line, you pick up, dead silence on the other side.....you answer professional at 1st....then a pause......then a semi professional "Hello??".. then "click"! This was very amusing Monday morning...even more amusing when we learned, the customer could hear us just fine, though dead on our end.
After this revelation, we now have a team of 5-6 csr's answering the toll free line saying...I'm sorry, we seem to be having phone trouble at this time, if you can hear me, please call us back at our local number...1-2**-***-****, rather comical once the script was nailed down.:)
The tech from telco was equally amusing at 1st. When he finally made it on site to check things out, he quickly determined our older phone system was the victem of lightning, and it's probably our hardware, not thier equipment off-site. While this would probably work on many (in telco, it's always supposed to be the customers fault)...there was a problem with the way he worded the phrase...a hint of doubt...He said "probably".
A quick explanation that "our" hardware is older, and still up, and this is what does work...and this is what does not made him say another doubt implying comment..."thats just wierd, you are my 3rd customer today with the exact same problem". After discussing the incredible irony and equal odd's perhaps telco's offsite local equipment could maybe just maybe, be at issue, we agreed deeper investigation on his end was needed. I love dealing with telco...
Anywho....thanks for letting me vent....feel much better and lighter mood. The beer may be helping as well!!!! :)
1. Have you used put anything edible on your partner's body, and then eaten it?
Listerine strips kick ass!!!!!!!
2. Have you ever had an AIDS test due to reasonable suspicion or hyperactive imagination?
No, but I was once convinced I caught monkey fever after a bad day at a county fair that will remain unmentioned.
3. Have you ever fantasized about someone else other than your partner while you were engaged in sex, oral sex, or mutual masturbation?
Yes many many many times, less often now since these years after the divorce..:)
4. Have you ever engaged in sex, oral sex, or mutual masturbation while in a moving car? A car being driven by someone not engaged in the sex, oral sex, or mutual masturbation?
Yes to the 1st, and it makes driving a whole new challange.:) Heavey petting and a lil playing, but not more than that to the second.
5. Have you ever had sex so many times or for so long that one or both people involved runs dry?
Yes...yes I have, it tends to happen towards the end now as opposed to the beginning, since the ex is no longer involved...:)
Bonus (as in optional): Fill in the blank: Jane Mansfield is sexy; Betty Page is sexier.
