What’s playing on the iPod right now? ANTICIPATION by Carly Simon
I’ve certainly had my share of electronic snafus lately but I had to chuckle when a person called today because his/her query wasn’t going through.
Sara, being the nice person that she is (sometimes too nice in my opinion) decided to try and help this person.
Basically we discovered that the writer was simply typing the word “query” incorrectly and consequently, the email didn’t go through. Hey, I can sympathize with the number of typos I make.
When dealing with computer issues, my first order of business is to always check all the cords to make sure the equipment is plugged in. Simple, basic, and you pretty much feel like a ninny at being frustrated if something is unplugged.
Still, it’s a good place to start and then go from there.
Same thing with query snafus. Maybe check the spelling first before making what can only be deemed a silly call when it’s just a typing error that’s the culprit.
Don’t worry. We didn’t ask the caller’s name. Anonymity is probably good in this case.
