You guys probably didn't hear this, but the head boss of B&O got the boot last week, basically it was an effect of what he did that resulted in me getting fired, so I have one thing to say;

So, they think dad's wheezing problem that he's had for a few months might be congestive heart failure. :(

I think that sounds more serious than it is. It's obviously not too urgent if they're waiting two weeks to run a test on him, but...eeeek, bad timing.

Me on the phones a few weeks ago.

Me - "Directory inquiries. This is Buffy speaking. How can I help?"
Caller - "Can I get the number for xxxxx in Leixlip please?"
Me- "I'll get that for you now"
...*Gets the number up in about 5 seconds*
Me - "Would you like me to connect you through?"
Caller - "You can in a minute, but first I want to know....HOW MUCH is this call costing me?"
Me - "It will cost you ?x.xx for the first minute, and xxc for the subsequent minutes".
Caller - "My god, that's disgraceful...that's extortionate....*goes of on a rant that would make Joe Duffy proud*"
Timer on screen - "00:56.........01:03.........01:11....."
Caller - "Now will it cost me anything for you text the number on to me?"
Me - "No. That service is free"
Caller - "Fine, text it on to me so."
Me - "Will do, and I'll connect you through straight away"
Timer - "01:44...."
Caller - "Thank you"


Don't you just love it when people inadvertently make things more difficult for themselves?

I think you should have taken the conversation further, making him talk and waste his money for half an hour. What a loserfaic.

You've got no l'Hopital. Joke would be funnier if dealing with derivatives.

You missed when I was having trouble with Derivatives. Besides, I've got a lot of other things to think through besides Integrals. I've got a problem with substitution mostly, especially when the substitution ends up as U'=1.

So I think I've developed a taste for vermouth.

So, I was crawling around doing some work in my attic, and I knew enough to wear coveralls, hood, mask, gloves, goggles, duct tape, etc.

However, now my coveralls are covered in fiberglass insulation.

Will this come out in the laundry? Should I take it to a laundromat and wash it there? Could it leave behind fiberglass that would get on the clothes in the next load?
