Contradictions in Humanity

Does it bother anyone else when you receive a statement from an alleged professional that contradicts itself?

To wit, the following statement:

Thank you for considering Denseon for the payment plus program. We had a project with Mountain View previously and it’s paid in full. As of now, we do not have any upcoming jobs. Denseon will only accept payment by credit card in the future if it’s for incidental work meaning under $5k. Much larger projects will have to be paid by credit card due to high costs in fees.

Thanks for talking yourself into this payment program and being so CLEARLY stupid…

 

 

Mis-Communication

Me: Hey dude,  I need you to change this note because it references things that will confuse the customer.

Co-worker: How should I word the note then?

WIDTS: You are a graduate in Communications and you would like me to tell you what to write? Can you get a refund on your tuition, or maybe some refresher courses from your alma mater?

Is That ALL?

From today’s “They turned off their brain” file:

Supplier sent in an enrollment form completely filled out, faxed it in and then called to ask what other information we needed.

WIDTS: Well… the form was completely filled out, so… I will need the account numbers and passwords for every financial account you own or have control over.

Things you should do when encountering a hiccup in your technological workings.

1. Capture the error message in full. Even those ‘words’ that are just a bunch of letters/numbers. They can be the most important part of the error message.

2. Close the program and restart it.

3. If web-based, clear cache & cookies.

4. Turn your device off and on. (It’s a cliché because it fucking WORKS).

5. NOW you may contact tech support.

Failure to abide by the above instructions in the prescribed order, may result in thermal detonation of your workspace.
