<James> I had an idea the other day.. Set up a website for all the people around the world who work
in any form of customer reaching job. Everyone pays a membership fee each month, and this money goes
into a pot. Then when a tech support person has a customer who really doesn't get it, they can use
the money in the pot to hire a hitman.. It all goes around, so people will never have to deal with
completely retarded customers again.

<Psychofreak> I have a kid (3 yo) with toys that do stuff and/or beep. Easily 100 AA batteries in
JUST her toys. (although she does not play with many anymore so they are getting packed up for
donation) Funny thing is we got her a wooden train set, no batteries at all, and now almost all the
fancy electronic toys are left alone! We will see if this holds true for more than a few weeks.
<Psychofreak> Amazing how much more powerful imagination is than batteries.
<Anonymous Coward> Try telling that to my wife.
