Straight talk

I remember when IS was first finding its feet. I remember how after 6 pm, when the receptionist had gone home, and the phones would ring with support calls ... I remember how we used to answer the calls. Some of the them were very colourful!

Yes, there is this one entertaining tale of someone who calls in and a young, enthusiastic computer guru kinda guy answers the phone. The conversation goes something like this:

"Good evening, The Internet Solution, how can I help you?"
"Can I speak to Dave Frankel please."
"He is on the toilet at the moment ... can I take a message please."

Now, I hear this, and I go over to our excitable crew member and this is how the conversation goes:

"Why did you say that?"
"It's the truth."
"Yes, but you could have said something else."
"I don't want to lie."
"Who said anything about having to lie - just say Dave is busy and that he will call you right back."

No jokes!

You gotta love it.
