3PM Cof­fee Break

Para­le­gal #1: When there is a hur­ri­cane, do you know why they tell you to fill up your bath­tubs?
Para­le­gal #2: I think it’s be­cause the wa­ter in the bath­tub will hold down the floor.

1PM Sys­tem Over­load

CSR on phone: Help desk, this is James*.
[pause] CSR: I am sor­ry, this is the PC and phone help desk. Sounds like you need the fa­cil­i­ties help desk if a toi­let is stopped up.
[pause] CSR: Okay sir, I un­der­stand, but you need fa­cilites, not the help desk.
[long pause] CSR: Okay, is it a Win­dows toi­let or a Unix toi­let?
Cus­tomer, now on speak­er­phone: Well, there are no win­dows in this bath­room, so I guess it must be a Unix toi­let.
CSR: Okay, I will get a Unix toi­let spe­cial­ist there as soon as we can. Which build­ing and bath­room is it?
[pause] CSR: Thanks.
[CSR hangs up] CSR back on phone: Hel­lo, fa­cil­i­ties? This is James at the PC help desk. Yeah, I have a doozy for you…try not to laugh…
