How Did You Know?

Hello, this is <Ginormous Consulting Company’s> Help Desk, my name’s GrumpyDingo, how can I help?

Huh… yeah, I’m trying to send an attachment but the email server won’t let me!….

OK sir, if the attachment is bigger than 12MB, then the email server will not allow it. How big is the attachment you’re trying to send?

Huh… it’s 700MB.

Aha! Then it’s way to big to send by email. But, you shouldn’t really be sending movies to your friends by email in the first place…

Huh.. How did you know it was a movie?!?…

Wayback Wednesday and a Fail (kinda): Google business card, circa 1998

Q. What’s the most expensive mistake you’ve made at work?

A. I met both Carl Page and Larry Page at a party hosted by a Stanford friend of mine in 1998. Carl gave me his card for eGroups and said “we’re hiring”. Larry gave me his card for Google—a flimsy bit of paper obviously printed by bubble jet—and said “we’re hiring”. I said, “Nah, who needs another search engine?” and went to graduate school. I still have the card. (Zestyping)
