Technomom called me last week all in a tizzy. She asked if I could have Husbanks to call her immediately because she needed to know how to play a DVD.
- I reminded her that even though I am a woman, I can and do work in the technology industry and know a thing or two about cables.
- I asked her if she considered looking behind the TV to see where the cable running to the DVD was hooked up, but this turned into a minor freak out about ever having to move the TV and set it back up again.
- In the middle of the conversation, she said, “Oh no. You are on crazy voice. How do I turn that off? Can you hear me? Do I sound crazy?” She meant “speaker phone.” She had put me on speaker phone.
A few minutes later, I received the following voice message. This is a quote:
“Oh … I did it! I can play a DVD! It is so complicated, but I did it! I got the picture first and then the sound!”
