Bill Gates builds new house!The renowned Mr. Gates recently constructed a new home. We recently acquired this transcript of a call from Mr. Gates with his contractor.
Bill: "There are a few issues we need to discuss."
Contractor: "Ah, you have our basic support option. Calls are free for the first 90 days and $75 a call thereafter. It's been over 90 days, so this'll cost you $75, okay?"
Bill: "Uh, yeah, OK. The first issue is the living room. We think it's a little smaller than we anticipated."
Contractor: "Yeah, Some compromises were made to have it out by the release date."
Bill: "Well, we won't be able to fit all our furniture in there."
Contractor: "Okay, you have two options. You can purchase a new, larger living room; or you can use a stacker."
Bill: "A stacker?"
Contractor: "Yeah, it allows you to fit around twice as much furniture into the room. By stacking it, of course. You put the entertainment center on the couch, the chairs on the table, etc. You leave an empty spot, so wehn you want to use some furniture, you unstack what you need and then put it back when you're done."
Bill: "Mmmmm, I dunno... Well, let's go on to issue number two: This is the light fixtures. The bulbs we brought with us from our old home won't fit. The threads run the wrong way."
Contractor: "Oh! That's easy. Those bulbs aren't plug and play. You'll have to upgrade to all new bulbs. Would you like to place an order now?"
Bill: "But the electrical outlets? The holes are round, not rectangular. How do I fix that?"
Contractor: "Just uninstall and reinstall the electrical system"
Bill: "You're kidding!?"
Contractor: "Nope. It's the only way."
