Give A Hoot

We have a busy group of computer geeks who work in the same building I do because we have a busy group of regular geeks always messing up their computers.

Someone who sits near me was complaining that she had a major problem and her computer was knackered. She called the geek squad and as they couldn’t help over the phone, they told her to sit tight and they’d be right down.

Minutes turned into an hour just like they do. She called back. Yes, we'll be right down. More minutes, more grousing on her part.

Unless it’s me complaining, I don’t want to hear it. I suggested she call up and say Look, if I’m late for my part time job at Hooters, someone’s going to get it. Imagine how fast someone would come running?

She wouldn’t do it. It’s the end of the day. I’m going home. And she’s going to be late for her part time job.

When she called them, did she say, "My computer keeps going down on me!"

Beth said...

Or, she could have used "my breasts keep getting in the way of my keyboard." That always works with geeks ... and, well, every man over the age of three.

Yeah, I would have used "oh my gaw, my national geographic third world nipples got caught in the keys, y'all! andoutlookwon'twork" that latter part muttered all fast and soft-like.

Seriously, who wouldn't want to unjam that situation...PC Load boobyjam.

Dale, I like how you moderate your commandments. I feel like I'm bringing an offering to a god on high and then waiting as he bestows his blessings upon me. I like to picture you togged up like the pharaohs of egypt.

Dale said...

Tsk tsk, you naughty breasticled commenters!

Tanya, isn't that how you met the husband?

You called it Beth. Very insightful and breastified comments.

Monkey McWC - unjam, boobyjam, jam jam jam! And yes chosen child, I'm all togged up but I think it was something you ate.

Hahahaha! Honk! It's true!

My poor husband. He's the best geek, and I'm the biggest whore, and he's stuck with me now.

Whenever I talk to him he just ignores me because I don't speak binary.

Or do I?

Dale said...

Tanya, you're not the biggest but you are the best.

There has to be some disability money for you somewhere Al. I know you need that beer at the very least.

Did someone say "00110100 01101100 00101001 01010011"?

I see we have a ticket in the autotask que for that . . . sorry to keep you waiting.

Wow! I didn't know that Canadians used the word "knackered."

Or was this person British? If she is, let's all make fun of her accent:-)

Just kidding. No need to start a war, or anything (I hope).

Dale said...

Mr. Coolcat - you should see some of Tanya's other binaries. muy caliente.

X. Dell - Ever since free trade, Canadians are using words from all over and not even apologizing first. It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life and I'm feeling good.

She wasn't British but knackered sounded like knockers which is what I was thinking of.

Why anyone ever fails to take your advice, Dale, is simply beyond me.

Fuck that, I'd totally whip out the Hooters line. Or go big and be a stripper!

And 'groused' is one of the best words. Ever.

Dale said...

I have no idea Holly. I keep handing out the Dale for World Domination buttons but nobody wears them.

Wasn't there a song Andi? I like grousin' cause grousin' can make you mine? Maybe it was dreamin'. Yep, good word. And I like your enthusiasm about getting those bastards to help you.
