Apparently some people don’t know this…

July 27, 2007

If you call tech support, and you hear an awkward silence, it generally means means that the tech has hit the mute button and is making fun of you or cursing profusely about how stupid you are.

If you haven’t yet done anything stupid, they are probably just making fun of your name. Blame your parents. Ask them why they couldn’t have spent a little more time or thought ahead before giving you that ridiculous name.

And no, it is not acceptable to go by the name of Timmie as an adult. Especially with the “ie” spelling and when it is your official name on record. That’s just silly and uncalled-for.

I just thought I would take the time to let everyone know this universal helpdesk truth.
