Life is too short not to take a moment to find some humor in it all…
When you need a momentary respite from the seriousness of it all, consider coming back to visit this blog. We’ll keep it fresh with amusing anecdotes, real life (i.e. better than made up) funny stories, and the occassional joke or two.
Overheard in a support call center:
Tech Support: “Yeah, just go to our website it’s at www.[our company].com…yeah, three w’s, then a dot, then [our company], then a dot then ‘com’…yeah, that’s right. . . . What do you mean, how do you spell ‘dot’?”
A friend of mine just bought a new computer and asked me to show him how to download programs off the web. The poor guy is completely clueless with anything computer related. I showed him a couple of the more popular sites and started a download. While waiting, I made the comment about how slow telephone access can be. He sat there staring at the paper sheet icon move between the world and folder icons for a few moments, and then said: “Well if you move the folder closer to the Earth, then the program won’t have so far to travel, and it’ll download faster.” I nearly fell out of my chair laughing.

A Loan for Kermit
A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack.
“Miss Whack, I’d like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday.” Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it’s okay, he knows the bank manager.
Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral. The frog says, “Sure. I have this,” and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed. Very confused, Patty explains that she’ll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office.
She finds the manager and says, “There’s a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral.” She holds up the tiny pink elephant. “I mean, what in the world is this?”
(Here it comes…. You’re going to love this…)
The bank manager looks back at her and says…”It’s a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man’s a Rolling Stone.”
