Text message speed record possible broken
The Daily Herald of Provo Utah is reporting> that a high school student has broken the world record for text message speed. The official phrase to type under time pressure is:

The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human.

Ben Cook typed the aforementioned phrase on a standard numerical keypad with no predictive text in just 57.75 seconds. Even more amazing, Mr. Cook looked only as his fingers during the competition—not the screen. The results will be sent to the Guinness Book of World Records for evaluation. The current Guinness record is 67 seconds.

Customers that think we owe them something "free"

You know what irks me? This customer that just came in.

When a existing wireless customer comes into the store and is looking to upgrade. Well not that exactly. It is when they "DEMAND" a free phone because "I've been a customer for 10 years" blah blah.

When I tell them that we don't do free phones on upgrades but we can indeed give them a great price cut on a phone, they threaten to go to another wireless provider.

Alright. I could give two flying fingers if a customer switches wireless providers. Customers need to go to whatever wireless provider serves them with the best wireless network be it ANY of the companies.

That threat of "I'm going to switch to another carrier if I don't get a free phone" just doesn't go over well wit...

Happy thoughts

This weekend, I am going to get all dressed up in my bar clothes and go out! Since I no longer work Saturdays or Sundays, I can go out on Friday or Saturday again. I might even go to Manhattan, about 65 miles away, and see and old friend at the bar where he works. I'm not certain of the details yet, but I've definitely decided to go out! Smile

I have great credit...

Why do people think that just because they just bought a car that gives them good credit? Or just because they already have a phone thats going to increase their credit score? I find it very amusing when a customer originally had to pay a deposit for their first phone, was always late on their bills and now their pissed off because the phone company will not give them a new line.

Sorry everybody! Just had to vent and this seems to be the best place to do that. I hope everybody from all carriers has a wonderful day today.
