Battle of the PC wits

Sitting in the office, plugging away at one of the general computers, ‘Gary’ a fellow realtor walks up to do some faxing.

Gary: So why are you on this computer did she kick you out of the office?

Me: No, my laptop has been having some issues so I came over here to print…I’m gonna have to call dell.

Gary: Oh that sucks.

(a few moments go by)

Gary: Hey…weren’t you the big computer geek before this?

Me: Yes, but I can’t figure out what’s wrong with it and I took it to my friend who’s an even Bigger computer geek and he tried everything he knew to fix it, but to no avail.

Gary: Bummer. Hey you should get a Mac!

Me: Ha! Yeah and why don’t I start kissing dudes while I’m at it!

Gary: (laughter) I never knew you felt so strongly about it.

Me: Well, I’m just sayin’

Gary: The thing that sucks is the RMLS website won’t work on the MAC.

Me: I hear that, it won’t even work with Firefox. Why don’t you use IE?

Gary: IE?

Me: Internet Explorer.

Gary: Oh is that what that means?

Me: Yeah, don’t they make that for the Mac?

Gary: I don’t know but they do have a thing called virtual PC which allows me to use the RMLS website.

Me: Doesn’t that seem funny to you? Using virtual PC on a Mac?

Gary: I guess, but if I really wanted a crappy computer I would’ve bought a Dell.

Me: Touche.

    Tell RMLS to get off their buns and make a site that doesn’t suck then. You think for something like that it would be cross browser compatible. :P
