Here is a short story to lighten your mood on a possibly blue Monday morning.

Last week I emailed a client asking for the FTP and CPanel details to their existing website and to please advise if they have PHP 5 or higher running on the platform and whether or not we can have access to a MySql database, so we can start their project.

The client replies:

“Hi Liezel,

The following response is satirical tongue-in-cheek – not to be taken seriously!

When Gerrie* and I were born, the world was very different. The following items were not invented: microwave, cell phone, PC, dishwasher. No dvd, cd or even video machines – TV was black and white and had no remote control. Bread and milk were delivered to the house every morning by a milkman. I can remember when the first man set foot on the moon. A hard drive was going to Durban in summer in the car – no aircon. A mouse was something we poisoned.

You ask me for a FTP and Cpanel to the existing doohicky. You also ask for the state of my PHP 5 (something to do with the pool water?) and then you want to touch me on my Squeal Base?

Yeah Right!!!

Have mercy on me – I might look like I know, but I don’t!

Have a great day!

Regards

Jacques*

(I can do smileys – does that count?)”

Have a great week! And contact WSI if you feel the same as Jacques and need us to lend a hand.
