User sends an email to their boss that they need a projector. Boss emails me and my boss with an angry email that this person has been waiting months for a projector and it's unacceptable that it's taking so long. I look up the user and show that we shipped a projector to this person in June and that they signed for it. Turns out the person needed a new projector cord but forgot that word on their email. The user called me up to apologize for the typo and the emails that followed, no word from the manager.

------- Instruction Deconstruction (I work tech support for a large corporation that services 50,000+ employees. It is not uncommon, when there are new upgrades or software, for our users to receive instructions on how to perform the installs themselves. We usually got a good number of calls from people who don't read the instructions and just call into the help desk.)
Me: "Thank you for calling [Company] corporate help desk. My name is [My Name]. How may I help you?"
Customer: "Hi, I just got the email that I'm supposed to install [newest upgrade] and need some help with it."
Me: "Okay, I can help you with that. Did you get the instructions?"
Customer: "Yes, I have it right in front of me."
Me: "Okay, at what point are you having the issues."
Customer: "I scrolled to the bottom to get your number and called in."
Me: "Okay, let me get my copy of the instructions opened up and we'll see if we can get this done."
(I open the PDF file and bring up my instructions.)
Me: "Okay, now what does it say for step #1."
Customer: reads instructions to me for step #1
Me: "Okay, do that. Now what does it say for step #2."
Customer: reads instructions to me for step #2
Me: "Okay, do that."
Customer: "Wait a minute, are you just going to have me read the instructions and do it step by step?"
Me: "Yes, that's exactly what we are going to do. My instructions are no different than yours."
Customer: "Well, that?s not much help. I could do that by myself!" click
Supergirl: Not started yet. Plan to watch but don't have high hopes.
Code Black: I wasn't planning on watching this because I was not in the mood for another medical show... but I did anyway. I'm on the fence about this. You can compare it to Grey's Anatomy and ER, but so far minus the soap opera relationship drama. I'll give it a few more episodes to see.
Limitless: Better than I expected. They built off the movie in a seamless way and I think there's some potential here. It's a cop procedural with the new trope of female officer paired with exceptional male non-cop (see Castle, Taxi Brooklyn, Minority Report, et. al.). But they are doing well the drawbacks when you talent comes from a drug and not your own abilities.
Blindspot: I was expecting to not like this. I have not been a fan of Jaimie Alexander in Kyle XY and Thor, but she does a good job here. This is a flip on the trope with the male cop and exceptional female non-cop. The premise is hoaky but they are doing a decent job with it so far and I like the characters well enough.
The Player: This flew under my radar and I only caught it because I saw a commercial for it on The Black List. This is an original premise with fun characters (Wesley Snipes). They have a problem with the whole "computers are magic" trope but they put in just enough explanation to cover for it. A good action show.
Heroes Reborn: This is good. Much closer to Heroes Season 1 than Season 2. If you used to like Heroes you should watch this. If you haven't seen Heroes you should before you watch this because it picks up where the show left off and assume that you've already seen the other seasons so you might miss out on some stuff. It's doable without the first seasons, but you will get lost at points.
Minority Report: I'm still on the fence about this one. It's pretty tropey. The characters are fairly flat. The show on the surface is another police procedural with a special consultant. There's also an under current of conspiracy theory that someone is out to get the pre-cogs and enslave them again. They are not doing a very good job with the second part. They are not doling out just the wrong amount of information. You normally want to have very little info, so the plot is like a shadow in the corner of your eye that sometimes you forget about until a clue pops up. Or a lot of info so the audience knows what's going on by the characters don't. In this the characters have information the audience isn't privy to because they are telepathic, but the audience also has information the characters aren't aware of and it ends up a confusing mess.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Not out yet. Plan to watch.
To be accurate, if you dispute a charge, the signature on file may be compared to the signature on the receipt as part of the fraud investigation. But you can't get out of change by signing your name wrong and then disputing it because they will also check security cameras at the store and question the employees if it's worth the bank's time. But they do not check every receipt for every purchase.
Image All you PC Master racers had to be wondering how or if you could run the new Fallout coming next month. Well, here are the specs so you can either be sure you can or be really effing depressed. Minimum Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required) Intel Core…
I'm not really much of a PC gamer, but I'm pretty sure my laptop could handle that. The only thing I'm not absolutely sure of is the graphics card. I know my desktop/server at home can handle it just fine.
But I'm also probably not a typical owner. Though I would think most actual PC gamers' rigs should be able to handle those specs...
To me this is the wrong correlation to draw. It's not the surgery that's likely causing these. To me it seems likely that these few people blamed all their life problems on being fat. Once their weren't fat their lives didn't miraculously improve. Then didn't meet someone, they didn't get a great job, they didn't master that hobby. Realizing that weight wasn't their only problem probably led to depression and lead to suicide. The outcome is the same, more sessions with therapists to make sure they have reasonable expectations and help coping... but I don't think the surgery itself is to blame.
There are two things that non-profit group Safe Minds—committed to “ending the autism epidemic”—doesn’t understand: First, that there is absolutely no link between vaccines and autism. Second, how research works.
+Kaoru Shimitsu right...you should always actually look at the study itself. I agree with that. Unfortunately, many sites don't even provide sources for their data and even when they do, most people skip the studies.
My problem is that many consider most studies to be corrupt because the scientists are paid to perform them. Funny enough, I'd say most believe this for a study that arrives at a conclusion they disagree with and not for one they agree with.
