100 Words -- Michael

Miguel McCoy. That wasn’t his real name, just what we called him.

Miguel could fuck up a wet dream.

How he ever made it to tech support, I’ll never know. They had to put at least three desks between him and his co-workers. He didn’t have an inside voice.

The best thing he ever said was to a customer that he was supposed to reassure.

“Yes, ma’am, having a firewall is like having a lock on your door to keep burglars out.”

“But, you know, “he continued on, “if a burglar really wants to get into your house, he will.”

Thanks to Mr. London Street and Bag Lady for the original 100 word post idea.

I love this idea. ARe there rules? Just 100 words on anything? I'm interested... and as usual... you are brilliant!

Did he really say that?

Fortunes Fool: Only that it has to be 100 words. Go for it! :)

Robbie Grey: He was like a magic 8 ball of deluded sayings. I see him around town every once in awhile. And I always run.

Happy Frog: Thanks! It's kind of fun.

becca: Thanks :)

Nessa Roo: Oh dear Lord. Any good stories from that?

Maryx: He said so many ridiculous things, I think I dropped 20 i.q. points just from living in the same town.

Fluid Idleness: Indeed.

caterpillar: Yes. And we were supposed to say the customer's name three times, to show empathy, but Michael said his own name three times instead. It was pretty hilarious, tbh.

I knew a guy like that when I worked in tech support. He was the only non-stoner out of the bunch. Coincidence?

Good times, good times.

You're pretty awesome at these. Is there anything you can't do? ;)

Sally-Sal said...

Yeah, and most it involves exercise :)

How wonderfully reassuring knowing someone like that, like a techie Dr Phil gone bad :)
