I've decided to take a walk to explore the world around me. If you'd like to come along, I'll share my thoughts with you on what I've found on this journey.
This is funny Steve but I suspect it may be truer to many than we want to admit.
Not every "Grandma".... I think Bill is right. We'll see I guess. And I have to admit - I don't get this type of stuff at all. Nope. Nada. Not a single bit.
Camey...I'll testify you are correct...you proved that to me yesterday when you couldn't answer my Facebook question--maybe I should have asked Bill!!!
Nah Bill...the government is giving everyone who needs it $40 to buy the tool they need...and we know the government will only give exactly what is needed...
Ohhhh wait! Hold the phone... you mean the question about my favorite song? I didn't answer you "yesterday"..... That does not mean I'm not able to answer. I was trying to watch out for your health remember? I said you would fall over. (whistles)
Ohhh wait! You meant the question about how to get your blog posts to show up on Facebook..I might just start calling YOU "The Questionator!"
Wrong question Camey...the question about why my posts weren't showing up on Facebook...you referred me to Kevin!
Yes, you are correct. I referred you to Kevin. See? I'm not afraid to admit I'm not the smartest spork in the drawer when it comes to certain things. Just don't call me Grandma.. that would be wrong on SOOOOOOO many levels.
Camey...I'm smart enough to know to NEVER call a woman Grandma...unless she tells me to call her that...
Hey Steve: need a shovel or a ladder?
One more thing steve: if the government send me $40 for the tool and I am mechanically challenged, do I get to keep the $40 instead?
Bill...just save time and throw me a rope...I'm in over my head with Camey!
It's a governmental program! What do you think? They'll probably not only send you $40, but an extra $400 just to make you happy...and feel your self worth!
Do I get $40 if I don't even have a TV?
Steve,Great find. I'm thinking of stealing it for my faithful reader. But then, you've already seen it....
Rick...you have other faithful readers...like your wife, for example...no, wait, she only reads and puts you in your place...I'd say go ahead...who knows who might wander by your site that day...readers...show my brother Rick a little love and visit his site today...www.rickboyne.com.
Karma...you aren't getting it...it is a government program...who said you had to qualify by having a TV set...that only muddies the water...I'd say apply anyway, get the little gadget they are offering...then sell it at a yard sale (of course, giving that money to your church and taking a tax credit for your donation!)
I'm pretty sure that's my grandma. Every time I move she asks me if I have a new email address. She hasn't quite realized that cyberspace isn't bound by territory.
That was a hoot!! I could just see my mil doing exactly that!!!
Wow! A shoutout and a shot, all in the same sentence! You must be a TRUE friend! ;-)
Steve and Rick,I just visited AND commented at Rick's place..Of course I was the first one to comment on Bill's post...(whistles)
Camey...you are just full of yourself today, aren't you...and it isn't even Wednesday night!
Rick...both the shoutout and shot were spoken in deepest love for you, my brother in Christ...bless your heart...
Michael and Haf...I think that was ALL of our grandmothers!!!!February should really be interesting!
Steve,Had to throw the Wednesday night in there didn't ya??Ohhh btw: I spewed sweet tea all over my keyboard.. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!(For those not in the know... I work at the physical church building for at least 12 hours each Wednesday.)
Hey...having worked in a similiar place in a previous life, I know about Wednesdays and Sundays, all too well...12 hours doesn't always cover it...the sweet tea covered the keyboard better than that...
I honestly don't know what is funnier -- the granny video or your conversation on here.You people make me laugh!heidi
Heidi...not even close...the comments are far better than the video itself!
Ok, you now owe my employer for the laptop I just ruined spewing coffee all over the screen. I used to work for Directv and I know first hand what this is like. I used to tell people in training classes that if they EVER offered to give their grandparents directv I would run them over in the parking lot and there wasn't a judge on the planet that would convict me. All I'd have to do is play one of those calls recorded for quality and training purposes where someone had to spend 30 minutes explaining to some grandma how to turn to channel 202. I still have tears on my eyes. Bwhahahhaha
Joe...I'm going to start putting a legal disclaimer on my posts that I am not responsible for damage to the reader's computer or screen! You are the second person to "blame" me for this!I can only imagine how it must have been working for directv!!!!
I love DirecTV. But so many gadgets and try hooking it all up to a plasma TV. Sheesh. That had me in a pickle, but I am happy to admit I figured it all out w/out having to call their customer service. That's right -- read between the lines -- I just called myself a genius. No pride here. LOL!Heidi
Hey Steve, if the shoe fits.....Let me tell you one of my all time favorite Directv stories---Once upon a time a customer called in with a blank screen. Now, the way they described their prediciment was "I ain't got no TV". Once I determined that they did in fact OWN a TV it just wasn't working, I asked him to turn to channel 202 and tell me what he saw on the screen. Turning the channel would usually refresh the On Screen Error message (Call Ext 721, Searching for Satalite, etc) so I could figure out how to fix Bubba's TV. He says "Ok" and then I hear three tones in the telephone (Dee-Doh-Dee). I said to him "No sir. You can't use your telephone to change the channel. You have to use your remote control".
Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I can't wait to read what you have written.
