So yesterday I was talking to this guy who needed service transferred to his new rental home. It is part of what I do. It is Friday afternoon, feeling tired in an unremarkable day when this guy comes on the line. Made my day.
He says, and I paraphrase a bit...
'Dude, this cool dude I know is shacking with his princess so he rents me his house on the lake. I need juice man, can ya trans my service?'
I say sure...
'Dude, you should see this place, its freakin sweet. On the lake Dude. Chicks everywhere, in BIKINIS.'
Trying to maintain professionalism, I say sounds nice, and proceed to walk him through the process.
'Whoa Dude, hang on ,my buddy is checking this princess...(to his buddy..Bro I see that, thats what I'm talkin bout) ... Dude you should check it bro! I'm talking sweet, Dude.'
I make some kinda positive noise, ya know, I am The Dude, so gotta be cool, and continue on, trying not laugh, but smiling cause this 'dude' is hilarious..
So I continue on whilst Dude-on-the-Phone is checking princesses in bikinis and he says..
'Dude I am talking freakin awesome, its like.. Bikinis on Tap!'
There is some major static and.. then the call drops...uh oh Poppa Smurf. So I try to ring him back, no luck. So I gotta move on, sorry dude we didn't complete the request... Bummer cause he was fun to talk to.
I am still chuckling over that one.. the 'dude' was cool and in my warped sense of humor.. I thought..
Man, that would be a great title for a Frankie & Annette movie from the sixties*... beaches, bikinis and a 'dude'. I am still smiling over that connection..
Some days, the 'dude' is cool.. makes the day go smoother right?
Until next time..
Hang Ten Dude and Dudettes!
*for the kiddos who miss the reference, I would say google it on your smart phone.. but you gotta watch where you point that finger, and the surf is up, so gotta boogie to the beach.. I'll leave you a visual aid to enlighten...
