All shook up

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

A TRAPS reader tells us he has been plagued by calls from the ‘tech­ni­cal depart­ment of Tel­stra’, calling about a prob­lem with his com­puter.

Last week he re­ceived a call from a pleas­ant voice with an In­dian ac­cent, calling her­self Ailsa, and ask­ing for his name. Quick as a flash he said ‘‘Elvis Pres­ley’’. ‘‘Thank you Mr Pres­ley,’’ she chirped, ‘‘would you be that house­hold’s main user of the com­puter?’’

After a brief pause he com­posed him­self enough to advise the caller he couldn’t talk as he had to leave the build­ing.

As he said — poor old Elvis, not only gone but also for­got­ten.
