Proof that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work at NASA:
Building Management Service Desk Worker: Service desk, how can I help you?
Me: I called earlier this morning about the heat in my office.
BMSDW: What building are you calling from?
Me: Trailer 6
BMSDW: And what room?
BMSDW: Is it still cold in there?
No, I’m calling again because I’m happy as pie that the thermostat seemed to have fixed itself.
No, my teeth always chatter when I’m warm.
No, these bricks of ice I used to call hands accidentally dialled this number.
Yes, you freaking moron. Why else would I be calling?
Me: Uh, yeah. (very sarcastically)
BMSDW: Well, sometimes it takes a while for the temperature to rise.
That’s only if you send guys out to deal with the problem.
Me: The thermostat display is still dim and says ‘replace battery’.
BMSDW: Is says what?
Me: REPLACE BATTERY.
BMSDW: Oh. I’ll check to see the status.
