Tongue Optus tech...funny guy!

I finally got broadband today and had an Optus tech over to install it. He walks in the door and says:
"Before I install the cable I just have to make sure your computer is up to the minimum specs"
"Yeah sure, no problems"
So he walks into the study (my home office) and takes one look at the computers and goes something like:
"Yep, that thats not a problem, but why is the big one glowing blue?"

Got a good laugh out of that.

Explination: I work in IT and have a couple of high spec PC's and a laptop all networked together. The main PC is a huge black server case with blue LED's glowing from the front. I guess my PC's are Ricers. :s6:
Still, it was funny to see the look on his face. He sets up the cable, plugs in the modem and goes "here's your email address, I guess you can set it up?"

No problem! :wgaf:

Cheers,

God the telstra tech support people are boring. They just sit there on the phone, I've had maybe one I could joke with while I was waiting for the comp to restart.

Re: Optus tech...funny guy!

its good to see a tech that can admit that people can actually do things themselves, and god forbid actually be 'smarter' then themselves in their area of work.
theres nothing i hate more then a cocky tech

I didn't know the Optus guys had a clue! When they set up mine they did half of it and when I had problems, they disconnected me.....

Nothing I hate more is a cocky know it all.
No offence to your self of course.
but quite often if us techs turn around and think "oh he knows his stuff I'll rush through or just give them the basics"
they call back or get lost.
Very very rarely do I ever come across someone that actully knows anything.

Oh and the cable techs and engineering rock!
can anyone say free internal mp3 servers. bwahahahaha
