What's an EMERGENCY to you!

by support In reply to The wonderful world of co ...

<p>I got a call for an EMERGENCY support call.  The client needed someone now, and he was 100 miles away.  I rearranged my schedule and drove to his site.</p>
<p>The client was complaining that icons and objects were missing and not displaying on the screen.  When I asked him to reproduce the problem, he started his favorite game (MYST), sure enough the game didn't display everything.  I turned up the brightness knob, and then asked, "OK not that we have the game fixed, what EMERGENCY do you have"  He said that was the EMERGENCY.</p>

<p>Easiest $500 I made. </p>
