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.

Are there really any Ham and Operated Radios anymore?

It's always something . . . . ham radio's in space . . . . Sounds like a movie.
