Tech Support Monday ~ 6-24-13

Tech support Monday 6-24-13



A great week-end to start off the first day of summer and celebrate son's birthday! I got multiple offers on a new listing, enjoyed house guests Friday night and dinner out, had a great open house on Saturday and spent Sunday in Dallas! Here it is Monday morning again on this last Monday in June! Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and join me for a little tech humor to get your day going.  It sounds like somebody needs some anger management........ 




About a year ago, Jason, the company's top computer engineer, was called out to make field service.  When he got to the lady's house and was let in, the first thing he noticed was the smell of gunpowder.  The second thing he saw was the double barrelled 12-gauge shotgun lying across her lap.  And the third thing was the big gaping hole in her computer screen. 

Jason looked at her. She was a little grey haired woman, around 60 or so.  Had she?   Not possible.  Still, he had to ask. 

Jason: 'Did you shoot...?'


Little Old Lady: 'Yes, I got a little mad at the computer, the program would not load. Tech Support told me that I couldn't hurt it, but I think they were wrong.


Can you salvage anything?'

Good morning, Dorie -- while things may seem a little overwhelming when addressing a tech issue -- it hasn't gotten to this...YET.

Dorie: It sounds like time for that techie to high-tail it out of there before the lady gets mad with him.  HA.

Wow Dorie. Now that is a candidate for anger management I would say. That poor tech. I'm sure he just wanted to run. Thanks for the laugh this am.

Dorie, That's a different kind of service call!  We're having less tech issues now that we got rid of our Crackberries.  The new Samsungs haven't rebooted themselves once in 3+ weeks, whereas the Crackberries were rebooting several times a day on me :)

Hi Dorie.  What the heck is a Crackberry?  I have often thought the shotgun solution was a good one.
