I'm coming down off a migraine. I'm feeling much better today, but rather than push it I'm taking most of the day off. I've been stressing myself too much, and the migraine is my body's way of forcing me to calm down. So in the interest of relaxing, I've been going through some of my old files and videos, some of which I decided to share with you guys to give you a laugh on this Monday morning.
Did I ever tell you that I used to work a help desk? And that most of my friends have, at one time or another, been tech support? Well, I did, and I remember some of the, um, "people" I had to deal with. I did hardware support rather than software, but that didn't stop me from having to deal with some interesting calls. I remember asking one sys admin what kind of cable she was having trouble with, thinking she'd know what I was asking: was it 10 base T, was it 100 base T, or was it coaxial (which should tell you how long ago I worked tech support).
Her answer: The white one.
So this one goes out to all my friends who have done tech support and wanted to eat their own headset:
And who can forget The Chronicles of George, havening a good time driving tech support insane?
I laughed so hard I started crying reading this, because I remember days where I too wanted to take a chainsaw to someone. Be warned: this is a total day-waster of a site. Second warning: any editor reading the Chronicles of George will walk away twitching.
