Instant Message WTF



  • I once worked at a place that made heavy use of Instant Messaging.  They used (abused) it for everything.  Specs, bug tracking, QA, code -- everything was sent via IM.  If you didn't respond to your IM, the sender would be at your desk ASAP.  Most people carried on 3 or 4 IM chats at a time.

    One day I got this message from a scatterbrained Account Executive:

    Jane:  I can't find vagina

    WTF? 

    Of course, I passed a screenshot of this message around to the whole department, with the subject line "Odd message from Jane."  Pretty soon the whole place was howling.

    A minute later, Jane came running into my cube.

    "You bastard!  Didn't you know Darrin and I were testing the dirty world filter on that website?"

  • TRWTF is that someone would think Vagina is a dirty word.

    I thought everyone knew to call it a vee jay jay now. 



  • Did they test vagoo ?

    I bet there is a "politically correct" term to replace that word.

  • Lady got issues.

    But so does TR for mailing it to everyone.

    And so does the entire department for 'howling' at this.

    My god.

    So much issue. So little time.

    I can think of several politically incorrect ones...

     



  • Someone i know worked at a hospital where the IT department installed a word filter on their emailing system.  All of a sudden any email sent in the hospital with words like breast, penis, etc. were blocked, i guess someone in IT didn't really think that through before their deployment.



  • I'm suprised they didn't test for Fornification Under Conssent of the King.


    And because were on the look out for any naughtyness, we should consider indicators of naughtyness to: Good Time, Smile, Hug, Wink, Hair Dresser, ...

    How about they just ban English?

    As for the installing email checkers in a hospital, that's just plain sad... But full of lots of mischief!

    lol Just try to imagine the doctors using all kinds of replacement words in their medical reports to work around the problem. "The patient was negatively tested for melon cancer".

    (ok, in the real world they would just use Latin...)
