One time one of my best techs fixed a woman’s computer and she called back a couple of hours later in a rage. She said, “you guys were supposed to fix my computer and now it won’t even turn on!” So I asked her the usual dumb questions: laptop or desk top, is it plugged in….. She responded , “OF COURSE it’s plugged in! I’ve been hitting these keys for ten minutes and nothing is happening!”
“This is a dumb question, but have you tried the power button?”
“Where would the power button be?”
“For laptops it could be at the top of the keyboard or on the side somewhere.”
“I found it. It’s working now. Are you going to make fun of me when you hang up the phone?”
“Wouldn’t dream of it. Enjoy your day.” We laughed so hard. This was 3 years ago and I’ll never forget it.
I agree with all the people throwing out Leslie Knope! But since I haven’t seen a post about Lara Croft I’m just gonna go ahead and throw her out there. Tomb Raider is one of the first video games I ever played and I fell in love with it because it was a woman being unapologetically badass running around kicking butt and owning her competition, man or woman. It was so great to see a woman that wasn’t the damsel needing saved and was taking in ancient mythical creatures “for sport.”
I met Keith Wallen at a VIP event for Breaking Benjamin. Him: hi, I’m Keith.
Me: hi! I’m Keith! Wait, no. You’re Keith but you already knew that…
Him: Hello, Keith
*Awkward silence.* I think I may have said something after that but I don’t remember because I was so traumatized by my mistake. I didn’t even try to speak to Ben I just shook his hand, told him thanks for the music, and moved on/ran away.
Response to What Movie Could You Watch Again And Again?:
When I was a kid I watched Homeward Bound EVERY TIME I visited my aunt and uncle (which was quite often). Now, as an adult it’s one of my go-to comfort movies! I also rotate between (Stiller’s) The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and The Book of Life. I could watch them every day and not get tired of them. They’re so happy and full of adventure! Sometimes it’s the only way to be sure my days end with a happy story.
