The Idiot Next to Me
Yes, I'm Serious.

Idiot Bastards

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

Listen up assholes... and you know who you are.

When I blog and use this as an outlet or to create awareness of how a company uses poor business practices, I don't expect idiots to post comments about me elsewhere on the internet.

Blah blah blah if you're so smart then start your own company blah blah blah... Shut it!

A few things to point out:

  1. I am not Dave. Please know what you are talking about and who you are commenting about when you leave comments. You know what... just don't comment anything unless you run it past at least a 3rd grader.

  2. Are you going to fund me to start my own business? Then shut up!

  3. When I visit your blog and see all your political ranting, blah blah blah red state this and blah blah blah democrats that... I don't go off and post on “other peoples blogs” that if you think you can do a better job that you should run for president.

  4. You were linked to a totally different blog, but yet you went through the trouble of hitting the back button before you clicked on 'comments'.

  5. You are 50 years old. Get the fuck off the internet! Go do the things 50 year olds are supposed to be doing these days... clicking on free anti virus offers in your AOL email inbox and trying to figure out how to end a call on a flip phone and reading books to small children while your country is under attack.

In closing, I would like to say that I love the feedback... just make sure that you are not leaving my blog to go to someone else's blog and talk trash to them as if they wrote it.

Footnote: Go see a doctor about that... they have pills now that help you with clear thinking when you get up in the years.


Well... since most of you wont think... either because you choose not to or because the man keeps your mental stimulation down... how about trying to read?

I came across an article about a man who wants to sue his VOIP service provider because he couldn't reach 911 and his 4 year old son almost died.

Before reading on... lets see a show of hands for everyone who knows the problem here... go on, stick your arm out your front door or window...

Let me give you a few more details... The father (I use the term loosely) ordered Voice Over IP telephone service as a replacement for his home phone. He also canceled his mobile phone as he has opened his own home based business and doesn't need a phone when he is away from home.

Figured it out yet? That's right... he didnt read... anything... ever.

Now I have worked in telephony for a while... from digital land line service to mobile phones... I myself use a VOIP service on my PC. However, before I had this experience... I knew that you may not get in contact with 911 using VOIP. How do I know this? I took the time to research the service I was paying for.

Okay... so the guy didnt read his contract or his terms of service... or even the FAQ... but hey... somewhere in the house he still has his old deactivated cell phone! (show of hands again please)

Oh wait... he never in his life saw an article about 911 and E911 service being accessable from a cellphone. He never looked it up... but who would? He was paying (at the bare minimum) $40.00 per month for service and he never bothered to read anything about it, ever. If he would have, he would know that you can dial 911 from a deactivated cellphone.

So this idiot called the VOIP provider at 2am and demanded that he be transfered to the home phone of the CEO so he could complain about (his lack of reading and personal knowledge) poor service... that he knows nothing about.

Translation for the idiots out there: If your cheap phone service doesnt let you dial 911 you can use your cell phone even if the cell phone service is disconnected.

For those of you who don't know... and for those of you who are rotten parents and put all your faith and trust into a cheap phone system alternative... get the facts and get a mirror before you start finger pointing.

Read, think, click... 911 VOIP info and 911 from a disconnected mobile phone (tough one there) and (the FCwho?)

From the FCC site:

Basic 911 Rules

The FCC’s Basic 911 rules:

  • Require wireless carriers to transmit all 911 calls to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), regardless of whether the caller subscribes to the carrier’s service or not.


Should I keep my traditional phone line after I subscribe to VoIP service? Top
Yes. 9-1-1 industry leaders recommend that you keep your traditional phone line in addition to your VoIP phone service in order to successfully access 9-1-1 services and to have telephone access during a power outage.

(pretty much the whole FAQ)

When young people commit crimes or kill others, society blames Marilyn Manson and video games... Who gets the blame when a parent almost lets his 4 year old son die because the parent chose to be an idiot?
