End User Phrase of the Day

What the heck is a EUPOTD? it stands for 'End User Phrase Of The Day'! Here we are looking for small crazy things that customers have said to us during the day. As of today we have 19209 EUPOTD's.

19209. After I ask the client to forward a bounce message: "Okay, so then I can go ahead and delete this stuff where it says "admin diagnotic information before I send it, right?"s [By :LaFiamma / 2015-01-24] [Top]

  • Yeah, it's not like that contains anything useful. I used to take calls about bounced e-mails, when I finally saw the message it said "recipient's mailbox full." And the user would always want me to fix it - on the vendor's system. -Captain Trips
  • I love those. Or when it says that the maximum allowed message size has been exceeded and they're like "Can't you just let it through?" -LaFiamma
  • Official Policy at the office now (at least local to our office) is to just dump message size complaints unanswered. Eventually they quit sending those complaints to us and call the Agency Helpdesk, where they get crabbed at for being Special Snowflakes while being reminded of the message and mailbox limits. -Grue
  • When they say that 10mb is a bit small nowadays, they are right though. -Holdfast
  • 19208. Co-worker POTD: Hold on. Jesus is buffering. [By :KrazerKap / 2015-01-08] [Top]

    19205. "Do you have a PC or Mac?" "Yes" The analyst was on with this user for 40 minutes for a very simple process. [By :Starfury / 2014-12-23] [Top]

  • "How many lights are lit on the DSL modem?" "Yes." - just keep the pitchers coming. -Harm
  • 19204. BossPOTD: "I've called IT to disable your windows." (Translation: Though I have no idea how you're keeping up on the score of a live game, like half the office is also doing, I'm going to use my Pointy Hair powers to magically make this stop... somehow.) [By :Mushroom / 2014-12-23] [Top]

  • Yay thanks boss now I can focus on the game I'm watching on my cell phone and not do anymore work. -deedadee
  • pffff -Madrigorne
  • 19203. Coworker POTD: "If my chesticles were smaller, I'd buy [brand of sport bra my retailer offers]." This choked me not only because she used the word 'chesticles' but because the largest size they make is 32 inches around and she's upwards of 40, so her cup size ain't the real reason.

  • Gotta love it. *grin* -Grue
  • So ... Her cups runneth over then ? -Necros
  • More like her gut runneth over, her cups are C-D. -Mushroom
  • 19202. MePOTD: "You left Gmail for AOL?" (said when the customer asked me to change her email address on file -- she replied, "yes, I did" in a tone that implied "doesn't everyone?") [By :Mushroom / 2014-12-15] [Top]

  • If that isn't chopping up a lifeboat to make a raft I don't know what is. I am soooo glad I'm retiring and don't have to deal with this shit anymore. -Gromit
  • Well, I can't talk. I still have my Juno address. I've had it since the internet became mainstream. But that one's for family and business and my other email accounts are for BS'ing and dealing with websites that demand an account. -Biosynthetic
  • 19201. MePOTD: "I've dealt with users so long I sleep with a facepalm." After my wife asked why I sleep with my forehead on my hand. [By :PolarCoyote / 2014-12-02] [Top]

  • I sleep with my hands in fists. Hmm. -figglywig
  • 19200. If I bought all three of these coats online, after I try them on and return two, can you give me the sale price on the one I keep? [By :Mushroom / 2014-11-24] [Top]

  • ::Twitch:: I can't even process that level of stupid... -skippytpodar
  • Why sure. What happens is that you buy all 3 then ask for a refund on the other 2. Just make sure you fill out the Eye-Dee-10-Tea form on our web site. Customer service may only be able to help you AFTER the purchase is made or it won't show up in the system. -Necros
  • 19199. Could you send that to the store? (Sure, which one?) I'll be in Seattle or Salt Lake City. (So which should I send it to?) I don't know, I haven't heard where my friend will be. So will it be ready at the store when I get there? [By :Mushroom / 2014-11-24] [Top]
