have you tried adjusting the red contrast on the monitor?
Pro is the opposite of Con                       Kids of today are so much different
This fact can clearly be seen,                  Don't you know?
If progress means to move forward         Just ask them where they are from

Case#57: Tech Support

As a tech support worker on a phone service for a range of obscure software products you don't usually get a call like this:

Caller: "HELP!!! I'M C-C-COVERED IN BLOOD AND I D-DON'T KNOW W-W-WHY!!!"
Response: "Hello, this is the Obscure Software Service Line. Which product did you purchase or need help with? "
Caller: "S-SO MUCH BLOOD! ACK!!! G-GET IT O-OFF ME!!!"
Response: "Are you sure it's blood?"
Caller: "IT'S FUCKING B-B-BLOOD AND IT'S A-ALL F-F-FUCKING OVER ME!!!"
Response:"Please disconnect and dial your local emergency number."
Caller: "I'M ON THE F-F-FLOOR! I C-C-CAN'T REACH TH-TH-THE PHONE!!"
Response:"Are you calling from your place of work?"
Caller: "I'M IN A PHONE BOX!!!"

(Players are limited to one response to the caller per post. The GM (me) will decide if responses are eligible as serious replies to the caller. The round will be only the phone conversation as it plays out.)
