Conversation City

Tuesday, 9:55pm

[ring ring]
Me: Hellllllllllo.
Abe: Hi.
Abe: ok…call me back later.
Me: BYE.
That was our 3 second phone call because shit was about to go down at the temple.
Friend: you guys are out a lot more than you used to be.
Me: oh really?  Yeah I guess so.
Friend: oh yeah, a lot more, it’s nice to see you guys.  We never used to see you before.
[she clearly thought we were hermits.]
[ring ring]

Me: yes.
Friend: do you know how to paste the link to those files, ever since I got a new computer it’s not the same as it used to be.
Me:  well maybe you should ask IT, I have no idea what your’s looks like now.
Friend:  oh i guess so, but what do you think?
Me: I can’t even see what you are talking about, so I really can’t even guess.
Friend: oh, ok.

[1 hour later…ring ring]

Me: yes.
Friend: do you know how to fix this markup stuff on word.
Me: no, I Never use that stuff.
Friend: well do you think if I do this it might work?
Me: I wouldn’t know, I never use it…honestly.
Friend: hm….well…
Friend: Maybe you should ask IT, I’m really not the person to ask.

[2 hours later…oh yes, ring ring]

Me: Yeah.
Friend: do you know how to paste internet icons onto your desktop?
Me: NO.  Really, I just want you to ask IT your questions so you’ll be able to get a real answer.

So painful.  But really, I hope you saw the crazy temple stuff and please contact your local IT person for computer support instead of bugging your friend at work all day long.
