You Know What Sucks?

Sun Mar 27, 2005 5:33 am

Why can't people doublecheck entries they make on an internet forum?  banghead 
Such as the field for the telephone number when they have a car to sell.

Maybe because of the preparation of monoiodinated neuropeptide Y (Tyr1-125I-NPY) and monoiodinated peptide YY (Tyr36-125I-PYY) put into another form.

TheCoz,

Pass me your telephone number (the number of your credit card would be fine, too), will you?  box

Kaust,

Some guy who wants to sell his car on the net, entered my number in the contact field.

Whenever people call, just tell them you're getting rid of it because of that dead hooker smell.  Silly

My wife recently bought an appliance from Costco, which was missing an accessory.

She called to have the missing item shipped, and Costco gave her a small gift voucher and a phone number.

It turned out to be a phone sex hotline!

When she stopped laughing it turned out the appliance manufacturer had transposed digits in their own phone number.

When I was still living with my parents in the early eighties, we had a house very close to an US Army Barracks in West Berlin (Andrews Barracks). We often got called at night time, because some drunken GI wanted to talk to a hooker in a brothel down the road (BTW it was a quite rich neighbourhood, but since there were a lot of horny young GIs around, somebody thought of buying a house in the same street (leading directly to the main gate of the barracks) and open a business. I think the brothel´s phone number was just a digit different from ours  Wink
Anyway, my mother knew how to handle these calls with humour...

Hey yesssss, why not?! "Dead hooker smell" doesn't work well in German, but "obscure smell" will do it just fine. Thanks.  tongue

Hmm, I do not know if this counts but...

The telephone number to my desk in Labor and Delivery is one digit off from a local auto dealer's service department. I have to smile why I tell the callers that we do oil changes or lube jobs.

On a similar note why is it that some people refuse to believe you when you tell them that they have dialed the wrong number??,

When I was living in Chattanooga, Tennessee the customer service telephone number for a local fast food chain accidentally got changed without the knowledge of the fast food company. Somehow someone forgot to pay the bills on the 1-800 number, so the telephone company disconnected it. They then proceded to issue that same number to a phone sex operation. What caused the problem was that the fast food company had the telephone number printed on all of their paper bags and didn't learn of the situation until they got some irate calls at company headquarters. The media lapped up that story. While some thought it funny, most folks did not (Chattanooga is deep in the Bible Belt).

Now it's getting worse.
I found a message from a Finnish caller on my answering machine. Since a friend of mine marries in May and his fiancée comes from Finland, I thought it was a friend of hers calling to coordinate or organize something. So I called him back (yeah, international call) only to learn that he wanted the car.

Nobby I start worrying about you...hooker smell in other people's cars you don't own and don't want to sell but you are complaining about on an aviation non-av forum?????? I'm deeply worried!!!

Did you see that I decided to give my bottle of whisky I truely earned for telling the world the shocking truth that Kirkie is a sheep shagger to YOU??? That is if that fu#@ed-up Scot ever decided to pay his debt...
