Techy Fun: Take a hint, it ain’t us!

As I’m in the process of slowing shutting down other sites I’ve worked on (due to time constraints), I’m reposting them here. Here’s an article from “Behind The Frontline” which was going to be a cross between I Work With Fools, Worse Than Failure and Dilbert.

Today we had a customer contacting us regarding a payment he had made. Unfortently, the payment wasn’t to us, but we managed to work out which company it was from and told him (together with their contact details).

He queried the payment again.

We stated, again, it wasn’t to us and who to contact.

He queried the payment again saying he did buy it from us.

We again told him it wasn’t from us and pointed out that we didn’t even sell that service. We also, again, pointed out who to contact (it was on his receipt).

Guess what? Yep, he queried it with us a forth time.

We just repeated the previous step.

Finally he acknowledged “Oh, I think I may have the wrong company – I think I brought it off another company”. Gee, I wonder what gave him that idea? I’m sure it wasn’t the fact that we told him 4 times!

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
