Epic Fail - by a Ron Paul SupporterSubmitted by storm on Thu, 12/01/2011 - 12:16
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.
