Service With A Snarl
Email reply from the JBL distributor when I sent an enquiry about my malfunctioning (OF COURSE!) On-Tour portable speaker system:
The message you sent requires that you verify that you
are a real live human being and not a spam source.
I am real!
I am live!
I am usually human, but I am a tiger in bed!
Cheeky shit, ain't I? Pity is this brilliant witty and engagingly humorous line it will only be read by a freaking computer program. Except for you guys.
OTHER MONKEYS SAID
I knew it!
So, when am I meeting you again?
But all the Spam I get talks about being a Tiger in bed!
Kicking myself for not asking back if it could verify that it was real computer and NOT a human being, sort of a reverse Turing's test.
whatever happened to customer service? probably hiding with civility and diction. how are the tootsies. sugar?
No Sav: once I got a real person to reply, they were very good. Bring the thing in, they'll just replace the whoole kit even though it only the power plug that is kaput.
Feet are nearly back to the point where they were before the operation, which was bloody awful. But compared to three weeks ago, that is a huge improvement! I'm off the antibiotics!
