Career Stories

Post by Deckard717 on 02.09.08 8:24

There are instances/moments in one career that stand out...I have 3 that I can think of off the top of my head: (all these stories are around 15 years old)

1: I was working on our help desk when this dude phoned in and asked why he had a payment coming off his vehicle every month of R51000-00. He looked a bit shocked when we told him it was for his jet :roll: He had completely forgotton about it. In those days the Toyota RSI was around and it was selling for about that price new...he could have bought a new one every month :shock:

2: Another guy had bought a Ferrari F250 for 2.5 million. A year into his deal he was diagnosed with cancer and stopped the payments. In order to sell his car, we had to insure it for 1 month. It cost us R10,000-00 for the insurance for that month and it had to be locked in a garage and could not be insured (these were the conditions from the insurance company). We could not reposses the vehicle and no one would buy a car to that value if it was repossed.

3: A taxi driver insured his vehicle. When it broke down he stopped paying his installments. When asked why, he said because when he bought the vehicle it was working..it is not working now..so why must he pay confused

For those of you that know the basics of IT Smile

A client calls in asking if there is a problem with the company's email (Exchange) system... we inform him that we do currently have a Incident logged for the issue... too which the user imeadiately started complaining..
"This is not acceptable, i am a very important person in this company... Why can't you be proactive and send us an email with these details???"
