Quips and Quotes

Quips and Quotes

At work I’ve written the help desk / task / bug tracking system.  It has been developed mostly in the off hours, weekends and slow friday afternoon.  Either way, I add little features here and there, and this weeks feature is random* quips and quotes injected on each page.

I found about  25 quotes to seed the list, all worthy of being read by fellow co-workers.  However, I found this great quote by a kid on Slashdot (News for Nerds, Stuff that Matters ) that just could not make my list.  The topic is ‘USPS goes GNU/Linux‘ and the comments quickly turned to cheap people complaining about paying 40 cents to send a letter across the entire country in a couple days.

Either way here is the comment that I thought was funny:

Only old people use physical mail these days.

If you’re 30-something, you rely on email.

If you’re in your 20s, you use IM

If you’re 13 like me, it’s all Twitter, all the time. Bonus: I have no need to receive packages because I shoplift everything.

* Pseudo random of course….
