Funny for the day.

Tonight I had dinner with my fisherman brother (the oldest brother for those that have some idea of my list of brothers) and his wife. We had a great time. Lots of yummy thai food at my favourite thai restaurant and plenty of booze.

When we got home from dinner my sister-in-law was trying to get her messagebank on her mobile phone to work but she couldn't. She came to me in her frustration and said "the system is asking for my 426 number code to access my messages. What's a 426 number code?"

After thinking about it for a minute I realised that the phone company was asking for her four to six number code (like a pin number), not a 426 number code. After explaining this navigating the perils of Telstra became much easier. :o)

That is VERY funny!! Reminds me off the time my 18 year old daughter got her first debit card and was sure the reason it wouldn't work in the ATM was because she forgot to sign the back. It had nothing to do with the fact she forgot her PIN!

BTW...

Language to computer interfaces can be confusing. The two-to thing is just one example. Thanks for the funny story, Yaeli. It's good that you're around to help people out!

I sure wish I could help out with you and your list on the post below. :-)

Hehe, that's pretty good! For some reason I'm pretty good at figuring out those little abbreviations. Like on personalized license plates, my boyfriend is always asking me what they're supposed to say, lol.

Good thing you were there for her or the poor thing would still be trying to get her messages. I hate computer voices...sometimes they are really difficult to make out.
