I never met a short story I could not make long enough to bore the listener but this is worth telling.
On my porch yesterday is a sales person from AT&T trying to tell me all the wonderful things about the company, etc. To which I kept saying we hate you, we left you, we are not going back. He keeps talking and then he says this…
AT&T Guy: you are wearing a University of MA shirt did you go to school there?
Me: no my son is doing his post-doc research there
AT&T Guy: what is a post-doc, like a kid doctor
Me: ah no has a PhD and that is who does post-doc work, he is a nuclear physicist
AT&T Guy: oh wow so he is really smart like those guys on that TV show The Big Bang Theory
Me: well since they are actors and not really physicists, I might be as smart as they are
AT&T Guy: that’s great has he been to that place with the big telescope
Me: No but he is going to win a Noble Prize so you might remember my name
AT&T Guy: what is a Noble Prize
Me: have a good day (shut the door)
Hence, the reason we are no longer with AT&T. They cannot only not manage their product after they sell it they can’t send people to the door who understand what it is.
