  • Re: Nickname Needed

    This reminds me of an episode of the Big Bang Theory where Howard wanted the nickname, Rocket man. The catch is that somebody else has to give you the nickname, not yourself. In his case, it was the other astronauts who had to pick his nickname. So, one day he is Skype with an astronaut when his mother screams, "Howard, your Fruit Loops are ready.", and after that he was known as Fruit Loops.

    Not even half that. Plus I can use my speakers 24/7, and my home insurance covers them.

    He is into speaker wire territory. :)

    Just as I thought. No data to support your opinion. That's fine, but doesn't help your credibility.

    Stop eating beans. Stick with beer. Duh!!!
  • Re: My Glorious Day With Pioneer Customer Service

    The following incident is based on an actually true historical event and is, in part, autobiographical:

    "Knock, Knock."
    "Who's there?"
    "Boo who?"
    "Ha ha, I made you cry!"
    "No you didn't!"
    "Did to!"
    "Did not!"
    "Did to!!"
    "Did not, did not, did not!!!"
    "I'm crying because my 15 year old Toshiba DVD player just croaked! It was only 14 years out of warranty!! There was a known issue with that player and Toshiba should have warned me that it was susceptible to old age."

    "That's not true, everyone knows mechanical devices from Toshiba never wear out and break down."
    "They do to break down and wear out."
    "Do not."
    "Do to."

    "What's even worse, I called Toshiba customer service and their rep was rude to me."
    "Was not!"
    "Was to!!"
    "He even sent me a rude Email that began with, "Lol, you've gotta be kidding, a 15 year old DVD player and you want us to fix it for free? What are you smokin'?"
    "He then offered to sell me a refurb DVD player at full retail price!"

    Fortunately, I did survive the death of my 15 year old Toshiba DVD player a month ago and will be getting either an Oppo or a Sony BD player in a few months. Until then, I have my computer DVD drive as a back up so life goes on. I normally don't cry when my old stuff breaks, but that Toshiba was cute and very easy to use. It even played CD-Rs! B)

    What can I say about the poster that the post itself doesn't already say? LOL.

Howdy, Stranger!
