Fun With Conference Calls

Quick setup since the idea isn't mine. This week's episode of How I Met Your Mother had a plot branch where Barney (Doogie Howser [Neil Patrick Harris]) was offering Robin, who is an on-the-scene news reporter, cash to do stupid stuff while on the air. The first dare was to say "booger" at some point during one of her spots.

So I'm on a conference call right now (really, I'm paying attention) for our company quarterly meeting. One of the other people on the phone was having phone mute issues because I kept hearing things in the background. Turns out it was a friend of mine because she emailed me to see if I had heard her answer her cell phone. I replied that I had heard someone answer their phone, but to be sure, say "booger" and I'll let you know.

She did. Twice.

I'm happy to report that I was successfully able to confirm that her mute button was indeed NOT operating properly.

Thank you Television I haven't laughed that hard in quite a while.
