    Finally a place to translate Handspring-speak to plain English. Please collaborate and then we'll get a book deal while we wait !

    HS: "Your Visor will ship in 2 weeks."
    Translation: "I have no clue, but your Visor will ship in....(roll of a die) weeks."

    "Orders will be fulfilled in the order they were taken."
    "Tell me when to stop.(as pile of orders are being rifled like a deck of cards)

    "The online store is being updated."
    "We're upgrading to Microsoft FrontPage 2000."

    "Your Visor has already shipped."
    "Maybe it did, maybe it didn't, but what's important is that you think it did."

    I'm having fun with this.

    answering machine: "Thank you for calling Handspring. Your call IS important to us. We are currently experiencing a high volume of calls. Please stay on the line until the next available representative."
    "Thanks for calling, but we really don't care about your business. We are currently experiencing a high volume of calls, also about which we care nothing about. Please hang on for an hour or two, until the next available representative can hang up on you for a quick laugh."

    Thank-You for calling handspring, how may I help you
    ...Yeah right

    I will transfer you to my supervisor
    ...He has one more day experience than I have

    May I put you on hold while I check your order?
    ...Have to take a ****

    Hold on while I check our database
    ...hey mike can you hand me that role of toilette paper with 9/14 orders.

    Would you prefer our 2m or 8m model.
    ...2m ships in 2 months 8m ships in 8 months

    Sorry to keep you waiting
    ...If you waited two hours, and thought you were really gonna get an exact answer, get a life, or read visor central, and figure it out for yourself, we bull****!

    Please use the 1-888 number for all your questions
    ...We are going to change it, and place the number some place on our web site, then disconnect the line.

    We have had overwhelming response
    ...We aren't sure what the response has been, noone can get through

    That will be 259 for your visor deluxe, how would you like to pay for it?
    ...We want Visas, as then we can charge your card multiple times to play with your mind

    What color would you like?
    ...How long would you like to wait

    We said it would ship in October
    ...We didn't say to how many people

    We know you want one

    "Thank you for calling Handspring."
    When will you people stop calling...?

    "Your call IS important to us."
    You people are driving us crazy!

    "We are currently experiencing a high volume of calls."
    We know we have the coolest thing on the block...

    "Please stay on the line until the next available representative."
    ...we just don't know how to sell the damn thing properly! We're all just standing around here scratching our heads like a bunch of first year business students, while pray to God no one notices how badly we've botched things up.

    "BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP..."
    Take that! you visorcentral geek bastards! Now get a life!

    First of all, I just want to say that I completely sympathize with the CSR's having to deal with all of us kids wanting our new toys NOW. Handspring was totally unprepared for such an enthusiastic response, so that's both good and bad for them. Anyway, I'm not joining in on the jokes here to vent. I just couldn't resist...

    "Hi. I was wondering if you could tell me what the status is on my order - I placed it on the 14th of September."
    "Certainly - could you tell me your name and address?"
    - We don't have an order for you. I'll enter it in now.

    Online orders
    -Our highly trained staff takes orders by writing the information down on lines which are on the pieces of paper we give them

    We are working around the clock
    -We take orders during the day, and then play rounds of Quake III at night. The loser has to take the next call.

    Your call has been placed in priority sequence
    -This call is high priority to you, or you wouldn't have waited this long. We'll take your call when we get around to it.

    Again, I really don't mean any of this. All of the CSR's I've talked to have been very polite, though they sounded a little frazzled.

    You will receive a confirmation by e-mail.

    ... Five minutes after the world ends.

    Your order will be shipped UPS ground.

    ... And forget about receiving a tracking number.
