Do you enjoy tech humor? Tech Monday ~ 11-28-16

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.346.1799

Thanksgiving week-end has officially come to an end! A great mixture of fun with family (helping Hudson and Beckett decorate their tree), meeting new clients and now ready for a closing this morning, an out of town buyer to show their top 3 picks and listing appointment this afternoon! Cyber Monday is in full swing so lets grab a cup of your favorite morning brew and join me for some tech support humor to start your week.

 

(A company received a notice from one of the Nevada affiliates that Las Vegas residents would be suffering from a network outage due to a problem with their broadcasting equipment.)

Customer: “I think someone is standing next to your satellite with a ham radio. You need to run out and get them to stop.”

Support: “I’m sorry sir, but that’s not the problem–”

Customer: “I will have you know, son, I am a Gunnery Sergeant. I’ve worked with Hand Operated Radios for years and I’m telling you RIGHT NOW…there is someone standing next to your satellite with a d*** radio and it’s interfering with my signal. I demand you to get out there and tell them to stop.”

Support: “Far be it from me to ever argue with my clients, but I will have to at this time. I understand that you’re a Gunny Sergeant and that you’ve operated HAM radios for years, but I know my satellite equipment, and it’s not possible for someone to be standing next to my satellite with a radio.”

Customer: “Oh? Really, smart man? Why is that?”

Support: “Because our satellites are in outer space. Furthermore, Las Vegas has an outage going on due to a technical issue with their broadcasting equipment.”

Customer: “Oh. Okay.”

Thanks, Dorie, for sharing this story. I think the same ham radio guy was interfering with our internet connection earlier this evening.

Good morning Dorie.  Sounds like the sergeant needed to stay in the military or go back to school.
