Epic Fail - by a Ron Paul Supporter

Ok, I'll admit I had Ron Paul on my mind a lot as I was helping to promote him for President.

I had been working on a website to bring Ron Paul supporters together to handout thousands of flyers on his behalf. I didn't sleep much for over a week. I work for a software company and occasionally have to carry a company cell phone on the weekends to help our clients that have trouble/questions with our software.

Turned out that after a long tiresome week, my company put me on call for the weekend. I was already worn out, but made myself available to take technical support calls. Sure enough I received a call at 5:00am Saturday morning! Only half awake, I managed to answer the phone. The lady at the other end explained her crisis and well... it just went all over my head. I was so out of it that I didn't even know where I was. Struggling to wake myself up and understand what she was saying, I politely asked her some questions to help myself determine what she had just said. Fading in and out of consciousness I provided her with one answer...

"If you click the upper right corner of your screen you will see Ron Paul in uniform."

Yes, that's right I actually said that. My first thought was.. "What did I just say?" Maybe I was a victim of mind control. A Rick Perry brain fart? Well actually, I was just speaking in my sleep. She said she couldn't hear me (I know she did) and said she was going to contact another employee that could help her. I said, "Ok" and went back to sleep.

I was a little embarrassed, but oh well at least Ron Paul's name got out there again, and without even trying. Next time I will throw water on my face before taking a 5am call. Today I have updated the background on my computer. I have Ron Paul in his Air Force uniform at the upper right corner of my screen.

Reminds me of a typo I made once

I was providing in house tech support for a very large company that is a household name. A customer had put his 3.5 inch floppy disk in upside down (yes, this was back in the days of floppy disks). There is a notch that is supposed to prevent this, but when upside down it will go in.

The disk would not eject and this was not something that could be handled over the phone. I wrote up a work ticket and sent it to the people that did on site hardware stuff.

There were three people that worked in that department. One man and two lesbian women. The man was the head of the department and would get the tickets and either work them himself or assign the ticket to one of the women. That day the man was on vacation.

The ticket read something like "Customer inserted disk into floppy drive and it is stuck and will not eject."

Well, I mistyped disk and typed a "c" instead of an "s".

Let me tell you, that changes the whole meaning of that sentence in a BIG way.

It wasn't long before I had one of the women, I was on great terms with both of them, come walking up to me with a bizarre look on her face.

I don't remember exactly what she said, but the whole thing ended with me red faced and apologetic and everyone in three departments laughing their asses off.

Keep it up!

Unless your calls are monitored and you will get fired for it. It'd be great if you just slipped it into every call somehow.

hahahah

Maybe you planted a seed that will grow. She'll look him up now.

I think Ron Paul will win your county in a landslide

Hey do you remember 4 years ago Ron Paul won Jefferson County Iowa I think with 32% of the vote?
Do you know how your Warren County did?
