A friend who works for a Houston manufacturer whose product shall remain anonymous emailed this choice bit of hilarity this afternoon. Seems his company was having some trouble with the phones earlier this week - a lot of static whenever customers were being put on hold. So the IT administrator did what most of us would do and simply changed the radio station.
However, my friend thinks his IT guy must not listen to the radio much, because "later on that day, the customer-service folks were getting some inquiries from our customers as to what the hell we were listening to - it was the hardest-core gangsta-rap station in H-town."
He's not quite sure which specific station it was, but notes "there was enough mention of hos and booty to inspire inquiry."
"Needless to say, we are now tuned into Sunny." - Chris Gray
