Then a Beaver. That Definitely Be Very Flexible On That Front.

I’ve told you this before. As part of our ongoing competitive research here at RBS we (like everyone else in business should be doing) shop our competitors for price and features, among other things. And we buy their software. They don’t know who we are, and they send us their advertising stuff, and often a salesman calls. This is what happened when one phoned us recently.

One of the people we hired to do a recent bit of work for us (who will not be named here, but you know who you are, C. GREAT stuff!) left a Google Voice phone number. When the salesman phoned back, Google did its best to transcribe the message he left.

Here it is, for your enjoyment, with phone number (which Google got right) redacted to protect our competitor’s eager salesman, who by the way, should PHONE ME to discuss possibly upgrading your employment and salary, and certainly your product line.


Hi. This is Ted, Good afternoon, This is this. Is be regarding from zebra technologies. Yeah I did it. Death cut. Just saw your ad in about the bomb destroyed back up solution, but we actually have not hear back from you after that.

So I just wanted to follow up with you to see if if you’re still looking for a back up solution. And also want to do. If I get a feedback on store Thad, I’ve got a chance to test it. And also for a computer off. I’ll talk to you have a concern.

Then a Beaver. That definitely be very flexible on that front, to discuss more about out all things. You can reach me at [redacted] and my extension is [redacted] to see the number is [redacted] extension 1 something. I didn’t know if this is either From, Roberta which is Thank you very much. Have a great day. Bye bye.


And that, folks, is pure comedy gold.
