Behold the perils of trying to turn the family and friends support line into a sideline


I just want to buy a kilostream link

That was a problem for my boss in the 1980s. Phone conversation:

BT man: You are too far away from the exchange.

Boss: How far?

BT man: You are two and a half miles away from us. No chance.

Boss: Look out of your window.

BT man: What?

Boss: Do you see somebody waving at you from next door?

BT man: Err, yes

Boss: That's me.

(A colleague demonstrated that it was possible to micturate from a building too far for kilostream onto the local BT exchange.)
