I let something bad happen
No I didnt let anyone die, but something worse...
Last night, a girl came in my room and started asking me about computers, cus she was going to buy one. Of course I tried to convince her shell be much happyer with the computer I have infront of me (iMac g4) and she just wouldnt budge, the girl knows nothing about computers. She wanted a Dell, and so did her daddy. Well she asked me the worst question in the world "Will you order it over the phone for me? So I dont get a bad computer?", ACK!!! NO!!! of course I said, well if you want me to talk to DELL its gona be crap, but i agreed "shur, ill order you the best computer the PC world has to offer.. which is just above a calculator."
The Dell conversation consisted of this:
Dell goofnut: "Hi and thank you for calling Dell!"
me: "Word up homie"
Dell goofnut: "um hello sir, can I help you?"
me: "nahh, I wana buy a computer"
Dell goofnut: "ok sir, let me put you through to a dell something or other specialist"
me: "wait, stop, what is your job?"
Dell goofnut: "I uh, am a receptionist"
me: "ah, its a shame, put me through"

Dell idiot: "Hi sir, you would like to purchase a computer?"
Dell idiot: "ok, do you know the type of computer you are looking for?"
