Is there really any need?

I need help with something techie, so I contact techie people. Next day techie people respond, suggesting I should give them a ring to discuss further details, or to go to other techies who can help me out in different way. I don't like calling about techie stuff, so decide to drop by instead with said techie object.

Is there really any need for non techie enquiry person to give me bad attitude for dropping by instead of calling? Really? Didn't think so. You dis-made my day. Thanks.

  1. I think you should enter that in the How Many Times Can You Get The Word 'Techie' Into A Blog Entry competition :D

    Ahem. I mean er… I hope it all gets better soon :D

  2. To be fair, in light of the recent anti IT services entries and stuff I thought I wouldn't be too specific about which service I was talking about. A certain housemate did actually just verify that this specific enquiry person is commonly un-nice so it wasn't just me. Also just downed a violet martini so am happy again!

  3. Wow what's in a violet martini??? I'm intrigued as to who this un-nice techie is. What was it that happened with the IT services thing? I feel all left out of the excitement :(

  4. IT: Security threat [someone hacking into system that stores passwords codes] yadi ya nearly everyone's passwords reset yadi ya no one can access Groupwise [again] or the blogs or a uni computer yadi ya everyone's mad at IT services because someone needs to be blamed. All seems to be sorted now though!

    Violet martini: Violet syrup, vodka, ice, mix it, float violet flower on top. It really tastes like flowers! Not that I've ever eaten any, but still. It wasn't great, but I guess it would be a good house drink for the fantastic house of girly pink stuff [sorry forgot the official title].

    Un-techie: Has nothing to do with the Union. They're hidden somewhere near Ramphal. Other techie person was ok though, but he couldn't help me. Will try something else later today.

    Dis-made? Surely Un-made if you MUST make that comments

  6. Thanks for the input Hull Revver! How did you end up here? Are you thinking of coming to WiM? I didn't think to dismake was a real verb, but being Dutch I enjoy the freedom to play with the English language, and liked the similarity between dismade and dismay which has the actual connotation I was aiming at.
