(The Customer Is) Not Always Right

This site posts conversations between stupid customers and service personnels every day. I have fun reading about stupid people that don’t have common sense (I just don’t want to deal with them). I think that’s why I like Bill Engvall‘s “Here’s Your Sign” routines so much. (via Singing the Sky)

16 Secrets The Restaurant Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know

This is an article about how many calories the meals from different restaurants contain. To sum it all up, many of them have a lot of calories and that’s why many restaurants don’t really want to answer the question when asked. Well… I’m not surprised that many of them have a lot of calories. I might not have the exact numbers, but I’d be in denial if I didn’t think a breakfast including several eggs, several sausages, pancakes with syrup and another side of potatoes, or a lunch including a huge hamburger, fries and a coke would be low in calories. Do I know these things are loaded with calories? Yes. Do I still eat cheesecakes? Yes, every once a while. I think nobody should tell us what we can or cannot eat; we just need to be aware of the consequences of our eating habits, whether it’s healthy or not.

Using Your Browser URL History to Estimate Your Gender

This little web page has a tool that can go through your browser’s URL history, and try to guess your gender depending on the sites you view… And apparently I’m more likely to be female… #$%@… I didn’t think the algorithm was very fair. For example, there’s MySpace, but I’ve visited MySpace like only once this month. I don’t even remember going on to eBay. And I wouldn’t have checked out Mahalo and if someone hasn’t bookmarked this site on those sites. But Google, YouTube, Facebook, and Wikipedia I do regularly go on. Well, still a fun thing to play with anyway. 😛

Here’s my results:

Likelihood of you being FEMALE is 66%
Likelihood of you being MALE is 34%

Site Male-Female Ratio 0.98 0.74 1 1.08 1.11 0.83 0.98 1.06 1.15 0.59

    The male/female link is awesome. I’m 100% female. I believe your a guy though.

    That “Customer is Always Right” link has kept me laughing for days – well, except yesterday, but that doesn’t count! I went back again today, and instead of posting a trillion unnecessary comments, I just sat and read and laughed my “tushie” off!

    Just what the doctor odered!

    Thanks, friend,

    @Rubialala: Thanks, I appreciate it. 😀

    @Rita: That’s actually the feed I read everyday now… Amusing stuff.
