Lookin for idiots.

By LordInfidel ·
After a couple of years in the IT buis, you start to hear strange and idiotic comments from a plethera of people.

Some comments have made me laugh. Others have pissed me off. While, others have just made me cry and weep in utter dis-belief.

Iwas hoping for this holiday season, if all of you would like to share some of your idiotic statement stories.

For me, I think one of my all time favorites was from a stranger who asked me what I do for a living. After I tried to painstakingly explain to this gentleman my job, after all sometimes I have problems explaining it to myself, he then proceeded to state.

In a drop dead serious statement as if this was the 8th wonder of the world;

"So, you have the internet?"

I was not surehow to react to that statement, Although in my head my reply went something like this:

Yes sir, I do. It's all mine, I own it and I'm not giving it up.

I would of have felt too bad for being mean. It must have been the day that the little ray of light decided to show it's head from the black pit that I call my soul.

AOL and the Automobile

by Jellimonsta In reply to So it was you!

I can just imagine it now. Turn on your ignition system and 3/4 of the time you get a busy signal. When it eventually does respond it would procliam in that all too anoying female voice "Youv'e got gas!". Besides that fact, I though Al Gore owned the internet?... I could be wrong?!?! :)

Al invented the net.

by LordInfidel In reply to AOL and the Automobile

I won it from him when he sold his soul to me when he decided to become a politician.

If anyone else is thinking of becoming a politian, please don't. I am overstocked in the politician soul area.

I need more dentists though. I'm running short.

SysAdmins are by application only and there is a waiting list.

And don't drive too long...

by NickNielsen In reply to AOL and the Automobile

...or you may find yourself shut down in the middle of the road!

Give whole new meaning to the word "crash" doesn't it?

Drive well and surf quickly.
