With my modem (“moe-DEM”) taking a powder and my computer consequently on the fritz, I have resorted to texting. Thought this exchange with my son was fairly amusing (typos preserved for artistic effect!)…
Susie: Gee rebooted umpteen times still no go sometimes forty eight pop ups that send receive errors happened whaaaa
Roy: I am certain kconline was down, I called several times and couldn’t get through to a tech. You would get send and receive errors because the computer could not get access to them because they are down.
Roy (a few hours later): I just called and they said you should be ok now.
[NOTE: In actuality, we discovered, the computer was NOT “ok”…in fact, the modem is fried]
Susie: No wonder steve jobs is dead just sent message which failed i said i welcome the break pardon the pun luv u
Roy: Amen! I love you too. So sorry I acted like a poop [on the phone, around the time of the above “note”!]
Susie: That is okay tee hee and lol u were probly shocked my modem is broken not surprising to me cuz i sit on the floor with it a lot and now i am poking this f ing thingie
Roy: You are a saint! Thanks for your engineering prowess!
