The One True TheDavid: Walter Paisley:It may just be very low standards rather than luck. No matter how ugly, smelly, stupid, or socially awkward someone is, there's someone out there just as horny and desperate.WHERE??!!??
NkThrasher: Goodluckfox: We were instructed to be "human telephone wires", and we were not permitted to involve ourselves in any way in the conversation. We had to, HAD TO, read everything that the Orig typed, verbatim.I once got a call from a delivery person using such a relay system. Unfortunately the relaying person was almost unintelligible due to crappy phone lines where I worked and took their position far too literally."(gibberish)""...Please repeat your last, I couldn't understand.""(tippity tappity ...other end retypes their message...same gibberish)""...You, human I am talking to, my phone line sucks, repeat what you just said, but slower.""(tippity tappity...pause...) I am typing, I can't say things slower.""Okay, got that message clear. What can I do for you?""(tippity tappity...pause...) Already said twice. I'm (gibberish).""....sonofa... Repeat your last please?"etc etc, I'm sure you see where this is going. Five minutes later I was able to get enough intelligible communication out of the system to realize he was at our back door waiting to deliver the package.Whether or not he was doing his job "correctly", it was obnoxious to say the least from my end./very cool system though, was impressed that such a thing existed
