Exciting calls, a long weekend, and spam

The more time I spend at my job the more convinced I am that most people in this great country of our are absolute nutbars. I begin to think a book of humor on some of the calls I have received after working for seven months for my current employer would be a good money making venture.

A freind sent me the below, which I simply have to share.

For all of you out there who've had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you. It's a classic! In tribute to those 'special' customers we all

As for life things go fairly well. Trying to maintain a good social life and not let work consume my soul. Recently bought Slice by Five for Fighting from This is an excellent album and I would recommemd it to everyone. Apart from that planning on a few weeks of celebrating my birth- first here in Denver on the 22nd, and then the first weekend next month in Colorado Springs, and perhaps the weekend of President's Day as well. You know when it's my birth we're celebrating it's bound to be a party and a good one. :)
