Tragedies of Non-Technical Boss:

Boss: What happened yesterday, tried reaching you several times, you were just unavailable!

Me: My wifi stopped working as there was some issue at the ISP's end.

Boss: You could've atleast dropped a skype message that your internet is not working!

Me: Yes sir but the internet was not working, so I couldn't drop that message too!!

Boss: But you should have, I was in panic what happened to you...You were alright or not?...

Me: Yup I know, I didn't see the wifi tragedy coming.

Boss: If ever the internet goes down or anything sort of that happens just drop me a text on skype, that your internet is not working. Okay!

Me: *Confused* as to if he is high or just not listening to what I am saying...

    I don't understand, skype is this magic app that just always works right?

    Maybe he assumes that your mobile (internet) is still working and probably, like him, everyone uses his personal mobile also for work related issues?! (which you shouldn't 😉)

    "How do you think Skype works? Magic and bunnies? It requires a bloody internet connection!"

    Ahh, I'm channeling my inner misanthrope again.

    There is this old technology called SMS, or even older one - the telephone.

    You should get one. I'm pretty sure it's built in in your smartphone too.

    It's even funnier considering that in my experience, Skype (Enterprise or not) doesn't even work when the internet connection is O.K.

    @smoq Are talking about my Insta device or what? I don't understand...

    But you are not seeing the silver lining. If you don't want to respond via internet just text him saying your internet is down.

    Maybe boss has Skype on phone. Each time he says Skype he means phone? But that is stretching it.

    This is it, chief, right?
    This is the peak of the adjective "non-technical" a person can be, right?

    Is your boss living under a fucking big ass rock inside of a jungle where aliens are raping demons?
