oh, i forgot to mention what happened to me while i was at work today ^^;;;;;
about a week or so i was talking with one of my managers about this combination pocket pc / cellphone we sell called the thera. since it had a copy of windows media player in it, i was wondering if it could play mp3s (or more specifically, connect through the internet to something like an internet radio station).
since i didn’t get to try this the other day because of either 1) being too busy, or 2) having people in the store. so, today, since i brought my headset and it wasn’t busy when i was working and everyone in the store was taken care of, i decided to try it out.
so i connected to my webserver to download an mp3 i had put on there the other day. it started to download. i had plugged in my headset and had been fiddling with the volume, so it was set to maximum.
then someone came in. since i was tethered to the thera i had to unplug my headset. i closed all the open programs, unplugged my headset, and went to help the customer.
about 3 minutes later, what do i hear at full volume but “YO HO, YO HO, A PIRATE’S LIFE FOR ME! WE PILLAGE, WE PLUNDER, WE RIFLE AND LOOT, DRINK UP ME HEARTIES, YO HO!”
me: *holy shit, it downloaded in the background!* “AUGH!” *runs across room, jams in the headset…*
thera: “WE KIDNAP AND –“
me: “there!” *hits what he thinks is the stop button and unplugs the headset*
thera “WE BURN UP THE CITY, WE’RE REALLY A FRIGHT! DRINK UP ME HEARTIES, YO HO! WE’RE RASCALS, SCOUNDRELS…”
me: *SHIT! plugs the headset back in and is sure to stop media player and deletes the mp3*
thankfully, i don’t think anybody really noticed. ^_^; at least nobody said anything…
