1. Yesterday I called HP for help on my computer. I spoke to a foreign voice – Indian sounding? After half an hour he had given me some solutions.
They didn’t work so I called back. Again an Indian sounding voice but a woman. She began to talk me thru some possible solutions one of which involved re-booting. As we were waiting for start up she began a conversation with me.
Turns out the reason they sounded Indian is because they are living in India. HP’s 1300 service number transfers you thru to their Bangalore office… We discussed how her Christmas was, the current weather in Bangalore, what she was doing today, and of course I couldn’t resist asking why a Hindu was celebrating Christmas !
Why India of all places?!
After an hour of trial and error software fixes (which I knew wouldn’t work) with these ‘help’ desk people I called the Aussie service centre whose number I got from her and spoke to Bruce.
“Sounds like a sticky keyboard mate – bring er in and we’ll fix er…”
Now that sounds right…
2. Just recieved an email from Danelle – in the family room! “Can you send those pics of Christmas thru?” I decided to put them on disk and actually (physically…bodily…unlazily…) walk the 16 meters to the other end of the house! A few minutes later another email arrives “They aren’t on there”.
This time I emailed… oh dear.
3. I was retelling the Christmas story to Ellie again last night. Often I tell the story and let her fill in the gaps.
I was telling her about the shepherds who saw an … ‘angel’ she crows. Who told them that a little… ‘baby’ she adds, is born – a very special baby and his name is…. ‘plonker’.
I don’t know where she got that from. Glad Jesus has a sense of humour!download cats dogs movie
