A few years ago, i got a call which went like this:

Phone: *rings*

Me: *looks at call, recognises the number and picks up*

Me: "Hello! Haven't heard from you in a while! How are you doing?"

Him: "I have a problem with my PC, could you..."

Me: *hangs up*

Aside from not even getting a "hello, how are you?" at the start of the call, here's the plot-twist:

A - This was my goddamn Brother calling

B - It was my goddamn birthday

    @TRiGGER80 I'm having a riot with "Forward to my past self" just think about it 🤔

    @ctmalloy "Forward to the past" - would be a great movie title...

    Or even better yet, the other direction... Something like "Back to the future", maybe....

    ...Oh, wait...

    Plus side and minus side to all situations I suppose - for one my family is tech orientated. Plus side is that they don't phone me for shit. Negative side is that they just don't phone me because they don't need my help. That and "oh yes, I remember doing that x amount of years ago, hah".

    @pokemanicx xD Youre actually right... theres one or two more stories i could tell ;-)

    @matsaki95 Its not about the fixing though... its about being polite and grateful... I mean, a "HELLO" or a "Happy Birthday" upfront would have been nice... Especially if you ever only contact your Brother when you have a TechIssue.

    @lb77 LOL! NOPE! Relations with my brother have always been... difficult... to a toxic degree (but for more reasons than just the kind of stuff i ranted about)... Not gonna happen.
