Computer Genius Flunks Common Sense Test

I’m no genius, as you know, but even so, I’m still somewhat smarter than a tree stump – I think.

I ran across a guy today at a networking event that bills himself as an IT guy – as in Information Technology. He says he is the guy that comes in and makes Windows work for you.

We chatted and exchanged cards. When I got home, I noticed his card did not reference a website and his email address was not linked to a business site. My email came back as undeliverable.

What the !$@#!

Hey, how about that Rudy? Do you think he will do a Trulia van tour this year? If I had half his smarts, I’d have to change the opening line on most of my posts!

    omg that is too funny. i don’t think this is an isolated incident though, sadly enough.

    maybe he didn’t think you were cute, so he gave you the “fake business card” (like the “fake phone number” trick at a bar)?

    Guess you were talking to the wrong IT guy.

    Call me up for any questions no charge. Plus My business cards have My Name, Website, Phone Number and an email that works


    BTW – Probably going to join a local BNI down here
