Revenge

32 posts in this topic

I decided to have a little fun today with that IT guy who calls me Dave even though he knows I hate it. Most of this occured via email, I meant to forward them to my Gmail so I could copy/paste, but got sidetracked.

Me: I accidentally my printer

Him: Whats your printer doing?

Me: I accidentally my whole printer. Is that bad?

Him: Tell me what its doing.

Me: Can you un-do it?

Me: Please, I need to print something, but I accidentally my printer.

(Nothing for about 10 minutes)

Him: You're not even logged in.

Me: OH NO! I accidentally the entire network!

Him: Or at your desk

Him: Is there actually a problem with your printer?

*Edit: All the above occurred via email, after that I called him and things got boring.

That reminds me of a conversation a few years ago. My friend and I were discussing this girl we both knew. We agreed she wasn't hot, but given the opportunity, both of us would be willing to sleep with her, yet "hittable" seemed too strong a word. We settled on a level below hittable called one-night-standable. Hit it, but not more than once and dont giver her a real name.

Hmmm...you are missing words known as 'verbs' in your conversation. 'I accidentally my printer'--huh?

Obviously not a true IT guy if he is not up on him memespeak

Agreed. He should be fired for this. If he doesn't know memes, he doesn't know internets.

The internet is a series of tubes, not a big truck.

Speaking of memes, this time last year I was working at a startup in Scottsdale with a team of 20-somethings, all Mac and Toyota fan boys (Priuses, an FJ Cruiser, Matrix, a couple Camrys, etc) and they drove me nuts by constantly using the meme 'That's what she said' in conversation. Funny once or twice, but 50 times a day? AUGGGGGHHHH. And constantly refererencing web cartoons 'Penny Arcade', 'XKCD', and 'Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal'.

Talk about a generation gap...was glad to get out of there and back into big corporate environments that are more professional.

I've never cared for Penny Arcade.

I just can't get into it...now User Friendly and Dilbert I can relate to.

Never read user friendly, but Dilbert, with a few exceptions, is exceeding boring to me.

Dilbert has it's ups and downs. But so often over the last 15 years or years or so, it's been a slightly exaggerated view of life in corporate America. It's been too real for me at times in cubeland.
