Topless barber shop set to open in Scotland @ 03:04 pm

I just had to call a guy to discuss an account and I got his voice mail and it went something like this: "Hi you've reached John Smith1 I'm sorry I'm unavailable to take your call right now I'm probably out helping our customers save money..." No big deal, sort of cheezy but it's ok.

HOWEVER! This is the same guy that got done telling me how he had to setup a DSL router for said company and that his base rate was $150 an hour! Are you freaking kidding me, there are a million poeple that charge way less than that. What a tool.

I'd rather pay $150 an hour to someone that gets the job done in two hours at top notch quality standards, than $75 an hour for a hack that doesn't really know what they are doing and can't finish after 5 hours. It's relative. The question is, "Is he worth it?"

FOR A DSL ROUTER!?! I mean if he's setting up your entire network, sure. But this is a simple DSL router, come on. A trained monkey could do that job. I mean even Derek can setup a router! :)

Derek asked me to clear a DHCP lease today. I told him we didn't do that after 3pm anymore. He laughed. I told him I was serious. He laughed again. So then I told him that was about as funny as him saying he didn't call back customers before 9am.

Are you implying that you are some sort of hairy chimpanzee that is capable of installing DSL routers?

Chimpanzees aren't monkeys, assclown; they're apes.

I was implying that any form of hairy ape (you included) are probably capable of installing a DSL router. In fact I believe there are certain species of flightless birds that are also capable as well.

Or for that matter chimpanzees. I believe that any animal with opposable thumbs or webbed feet could install DSL router.

We should clone a Chimp/Penguin hybrid, and grow our own army of perfect DSL install techs! MUAHAHA!
