Being approached with a question at work... passing it off to the person responsible for the confusion that caused the question... and then being approached with the same question this morning by someone different who had it passed off to them. :F

Bonus: It involves an issue from 2007 that I wasn't responsible for at the time, haven't even been remotely involved with in 2 years, but somehow I'm still considered the authoritative expert on it. #-o

Well since DKF brought up work petpeeves. I am a voice mail administrator for a cellular company. I have worked on voicemail systems for 10 years and for 10 years I have heard the same complaint multiple times a week.

I got this email today from a salesperson.

Subject: Voice Mail Problem
Customer is complaining that when they recieve a call the phone never rings and goes straight to voice mail. The customer will not know they have missed a call until they get the notification of new voice mail on the phone. Please investigate why the voice mail system gets the call and not the customer.


THIS IS NOT A VOICE MAIL PROBLEM!!! ***pulls what hair he has left out***

If the call went to voice mail, and the caller was able to leave a voice mail, and the customer then was able to dial in to their voice mail and listen the the message left for them then guess what? FOCKING VOICE MAIL IS WORKING!!!!

No worries I can get us a few anthromorphic arms and we can program the slap maneuver. We'll slap them on some remote carts with vision control systems and awaaaaaaaaaay we go! We'll start in Athens and Gainesville!

I hate nosey and pushy know it all neighbors. Whenever we are working on the yard our neighbors to the right of us will sit behind their blinds and watch what we are doing. Then usually within the hour will come outside and tell us how they feel we are making a big mistake with our yard and offer unsolicited advice as to the RIGHT way to do it. How since we are from NY we dont know anything about gardens...they have been gardening for years....yada yada yada. And of course end the conversation with...."we have the best yard in the neighborhood so we know what we are talking about". Yesterday the lecture was about watering after 10 am and before 5 pm. The hubby doesnt care but it po's me to no end. So today I am in the back yard at around 11 am and watering the vegetable garden. I look over and see that the nosey mfs are looking through the blinds in their sunroom. I know they are just minutes away from calling the gardening police cause I am watering at the wrong time. So I go into my house, and since I have a chitload of easter candy take a few chocolate eggs and put it into my sweatpants pockets . I go back outside and am facing their sunroom. I have my hand and am scratching the outside of the back of my pants, but they cant tell if I have my hand inside or outside of my pants. I then take my hand and put it into the back pocket of my pants where I have the now melted chocolate eggs. I pull my hand out, look at the melted chocolate on my hands, smell it, and then start licking it. Within minutes the blinds are shut. I then go into the house and the hubby asks what was I doing. I say watering the veggies. He says you know that they are gonna say something. I offer to bet him dinner tonite that they dont come over. He takes the bet. It is now almost 6 pm, and the hubby is taking me out to dinner.

I usually always stop the microwave before it hits zero, weird habit but I still clear it.
