Q: I read yesterday that Microsoft is announcing a new music service and I’m a little concerned.
A: Big whoop.
Q: Well, yeah, but it’s a music rental model, like Napster.
A: Total big whoop. Music rental models chew chunks. Who cares about one more company that doesn’t get it and thinks people want to keep paying for their music forever?
Q: Well, that’s certainly true. But my concern is that as all these second-rate music rental services keep cropping up, they’ll create some steam. Crappy steam, but steam.
A: So, your fear is that five or six companies implementing a crappy business model isn’t enough to sway people from using the one good one but, say, twenty companies implementing a crappy business model just might be.
Q: That’s right.
A: Well, I don’t think that’s really a problem. I mean, what usually happens is that the one good one is the one that survives and ends up owning the market.
A: Um… well…
Q: You’re joking, right?
A: Well, I… I…
A: Just because it hasn’t happened doesn’t mean it couldn’t, you know.
Q: HELLO, FRIEND!
A: Oh, no…
Q: DO U WORRY ABOUT P-NUS SIZE WITH HER?
A: Do we have go through this again?
Q: THIS STOCK IS SURE 2 FLY ON MONDAY!
A: Stop it. Bob… just stop it.
Q: Look, this is a perfectly acceptable profession. Just because you don’t like mass email marketing does not mean that you have the right to question how I make a living.
A: Bob, you don’t send out spam emails. You just call me every few days and rattle off this crap. You’ve been unemployed for 18 months.
Q: And, and, consequently I have a lot of time on my hands.
A: Bob, you need to move out of your parents’ basement.
Q: But I have a mini fridge and everything…
Q: Is there going to be any sexual innuendo in this Help Desk?
Q: Well, I’ve read the previous two questions and I’m starting to think there isn’t going to be any sexual innuendo.
A: There isn’t sexual innuendo every week you know.
Q: I know. The weeks it sucks it doesn’t have sexual innuendo.
A: Look, not everything is about sexual innuendo.
Q: No. No. You’re right about that. Everything is about sex but I don’t suspect you’re actually ever going to have people humping on the Help Desk I will just have to take what I can get!
A: Well, you’ve taken up the last question so unless you’re going to provide the sexual innuendo yourself, I think you’re out of luck.
Q: No! No! That’s no good!
Q: I’m… I’m just not sexy!
A: I’d imagine you’re not very good at making innuendo, either.
Q: I’m not!
A: Well… maybe next week.
Q: Pff. I’ve got a closet full of your promises!
A: No, you don’t.
