    curious george has been strangely goofy and ebullient recently.

    cg *keeping himself entertained while working and using his nice big outside-people voice*: okay now, so the outcome of this data i'm inputting now is going to determine whether or not i get into that ... um, art school in paris.
    us: *carry on with our work*
    cg: so i require absolute silence here please. absolute silence, people.
    rest of us: *carry on with our work*
    curious george, afterthought: ... or maybe just into [local college].
    someone else: so we can talk just a little bit then?

    INTJ - The Scientists

    Very loud coworker: Why do you just stand there like a statue? Have some personality!

    I didn't respond.

    She actually sounded kind of angry, like I had personally offended her. I had no intention of doing so, but I wouldn't mind taking credit.

    I was talking with my teacher and classmates a bit today about the recent cockroach incident.

    ENFP classmate: How have you been?
    Me: Not bad, except a cockroach got into my apartment last night.
    ENFP: Oh no!
    Teacher (xSFJ?) : How did you get rid of it?
    Me: It was on the floor, so I smacked it with a slipper.
    *Both look impressed*
    ISTJ classmate: How did you kill it with a slipper? Aren't they really hard?
    Me: Yeah, but I hit it REALLY hard.
    ISTJ: Did you have to hit it more than once?
    Me: No, I hit it extremely hard. It wasn't getting up after that.
    *All looking impressed*

    I still feel bad for killing the blasted thing. I hate killing bugs, but I didn't have anything to catch it with and it could have disappeared under my bookshelf if I hadn't acted fast...

    Fail. In March my remote control broke. Store first gave the wrong one (didn't work) and eventually couldn't replace it. Extended warranty invoked: New one sent by mail a week ago. Picked it up today. Doesn't work. why? Because they sent me the exact same model they initially gave me at the shop. Call them up:

    Me: "Hi I asked for my remote to be replaced at the end of March or so. I got the new one today. It isn't fit for our model television. It is the exact same model I initially bought in the shop."
    Person: "Hmmm yeah that's stupid.. well if we can't replace it we'll just have to give you a new tv"
    Me: "....."

    I do not comprehend why it has to be so hard to replace a remote control.

    across the wall, dev lead of curious george's team is trying to palm off a bug

    dl: hey, cg - can i give you a bug to verify?
    cg: ghmfnph. is it one of mine?
    dl: no, <name> logged it.
    cg: that's a dev.
    dl: dev lead, yeah. it was logged during the free-for-all.
    cg: dev lead of <teamname> team. so give it to them.
    dl: ...
    cg: wait, lemme just see if i can find out what the process is for those bugs.
    *time passes*
    cg: process is, that there is no process.
    dl: gee, cg, you know by this time you could already have closed this bug
    cg: probably.
    dl *peer-pressure voice*: c'mon, buddy, it would be so quick. how long could it take? i mean, is this efficient? with just a couple of minutes out of your day, you could make this whole thing go away.
    cg: not if a developer logged it.

    gabby dev lead and resident development manager: it's regression again so we're having the usual grumble of discontent. the word 'spreadsheet' has come to the point where nobody can say it without having a traumatized giggle attack.

    rdm: *something something something*
    gdl: *something something back*
    rdm: yeah, i hear you. but anyway, solidarity.
    gdl: solidarity!
    rdm: i'll take these concerns back to the powers that be and see what i can get, though i can't promise anything
    gdl: i'm behind you, brother!
    rdm: i KNOW you're behind me. the trouble is, you're pushing.

    BT Customer Service --> FlaviaGemina turns into ranting monster

    When we moved into our new flat, BT screwed up our landline and internet contract big time.
    Poor ISTJ husband had to phone them 3 times a week for over a months and they still didn't get it right.

    ISTJ: We are moving house, so I'd like to terminate the old contract and set up a new one at the new address.
    BT person #1: That's fine, the contract can be transferred.

    ISTJ: We've just moved house and I was told the contract can be transferred.
    BT person #2: Yes, but we have to send an engineer to set up <some box>.
    Engineer sets up the box.
    Engineer: You can make phone calls now, but you can't receive incoming calls because they have to send you your phone number so that people can phone you.
    ISTJ: ? They told us the contract and number would be transferred.
    ISTJ phones BT to find out about it.
    BT person #3: You have to press this and that button and your number will be announced.

    We get a bill for over 40 pound for the old address when we haven't lived there for two months, plus a bill for the new address that is more expensive than it should be because it doesn't use the package we thought we had subsribed to.
    ISTJ: You billed us 40 pounds on our old address, but we haven't lived there for two months.
    BT person #4: What's your old address?
    ISTJ: 10 Old Street.
    BT person: What's your new address?
    ISTJ: 10 New Street.
    BT person: What's your old address?
    ISTJ: 10 Old Street.
    BT person: What's your new address?
    ISTJ: 10 New Street.
    BT person: What's your old address?
    ISTJ: 10 Old Street.
    BT person: What's your new address?
    ISTJ: 10 New Street.
    BT person: You didn't cancel your package at the old address.
    ISTJ: Yes, I did try to, but I was told I don't need to cancel it, because it would be transferred.
    BT person: That's not possible, you can't transfer it. What package is it you wanted?
    ISTJ: The International Bla bla package.
    BT person: I'll set that up for you now and cancel the old one.

    We get another two bills, exactly like before.

    ISTJ: *gives summary of previous conversation*
    BT person #5: What's your old address?
    ISTJ: 10 Old Street.
    BT person: What's your new address?
    ISTJ: 10 New Street.
    BT person: What's your old address?
    ISTJ: 10 Old Street.
    BT person: What's your new address?
    ISTJ: 10 New Street.
    BT person: What's your old address?
    ISTJ: 10 Old Street.
    BT person: What's your new address?
    ISTJ: 10 New Street.
    Me to ISTJ: Let me talk to him.
    Me: You know what, you owe us £80, you can either transfer them into my husband's account pronto or we'll just cancel our contract coz guess what, we don't really need a landline. We'll just go to a phone booth.
    BT person: Gulp... let me put you through to my colleague.
    BT person #6: Madam, I will transfer the money to you now. I've done it now.


    We don't receive the money and get the bills again.
    ISTJ: *beats his fists against the door frame* I can't take this any more, I want to jump out of the window.
    Me: Let me phone them.
    BT person #7: How may I help you?
    Me: Have you got something to write with there? You see, this has been going on for two months and my husband has told your colleagues the story so many times, he's about to lose his mind. SO LISTEN UP COZ I'M GOING TO TELL YOU THIS EXACTLY ONCE! THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS NOW, IT'S JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH. READY?
    BT person: *Gulp*, yes, Ma'am.
    Me: *Retells saga* So your colleague said he would trannsfer us the money.
    BT person: That's not our policy.
    Me: SO YOU'RE SAYING YOUR COLLEAGUE WAS LYING TO US?
    BT person: Er, er, *gulp* I wouldn't go so far as to say that.
    Me: If it's not your policy, he could have just explained that and referred me to some documents where I can read up on it. You know, people can understand these things if you talk to them sensibly. I could have totally accepted it if that isn't your policy. But lying to them to pacify them, that's just patronizing.
    BT person: *Gulp*

    Flight of the Dentist

    I've got a filling in an awkward spot in one of my upper back teeth. The filling had fallen out two times, but the tooth didn't decay any more. I pay for dental treatment myself.

    Dentist: That tooth will have to come out.
    Me: No.
    Dentist: Well, the filling has fallen out twice, I will have to pull the tooth.
    Me: What do you mean? Is it infected? Has it decayed any further?
    Dentist in SF tone: Ma'am, of course it is your mouth, it's your decision.
    Me: That's what I'm saying. I'm not having it pulled.
    Dentist, SF tone: I'm just letting you know that the filling might fall out again.
    Me: So?
    Dentist, SF tone: Then we'd have to put another one in.
    Me: So? You'll put in another one.
    Dentist: Of course, as I said, it's your mouth. It's just that it might fall out again.
    Me: WHAT IS THE PROBLEM HERE? IS THIS ABOUT MONEY? I PAY MYSELF ANYWAY!
    Dentist: Uyeeeuyeeeuuyeeeu, it might fall out again.
    Me: WHAT ARE YOU EVEN TRYING TO SAY?
    Dentist runs away, returns
    Dentist: I've spoken to my superior and he says it's alright, we can give you a <special material> filling for £30.
    Me: £30, is that what it was all about? That's what I paid last time, too. It's not a problem.
    Dentist: Fine, I will put that filling in, but I'd just like you to know that it may fall out again. It might last a year, it might last two months.
    Me: Then you'll put in another one after a year or after two months.
