(2006-03-02) As part of an historic nuclear deal between the U.S. and India, President George Bush announced today that officials at U.S. nuclear power plants who experience technical difficulties will call a toll-free number to get immediate help from a tech-support center in New Delhi.
Our friendship with the people of India grows stronger every day, said President Bush. Its good to know that from now on, when a nuculer reactor starts to overheat, or meltdown, the plant manager can call on the world leaders in concise and courteous customer service. Theyll hear that cheerful voice saying, Hello, my name is virtually unpronounceable. You may call me Steve. How may I help you?
Under the terms of the U.S.-India nuclear pact, if the Indian tech support operator cant resolve the issue before radiation escapes the containment vessel, the call gets escalated to the next level transferred to an American technician back at the power plant which has the problem.
So does that mean Homer Simpson is going to lose his job to Apu?
You shouldn't have posted the warning ;) Takes away from half the fun of reading the replies...LOL
This article reminded me - yesterday Bush was on talking about the nuclear agreement with India, and he pronounced the word "nuclear" correctly. I heard him say it several times.
I called the 800 number associated with my old computer. I got a guy in India who said "20 dollar..."
LOL! I just read the headline and was like "WTF is the MSM trying to pull now!" LOL
I have had loads of problems with Indian call centers.
Not only does the president normally pronounce it incorrectly---so does Jack Bauer.
I solved the problem by buying a Dell. H-P can pound sand.
Calling Hanoi Jane, calling Hanoi Jane, we've got a meltdown ... LOL!!!
nope, Apu will lose his job to Homer.. uh, ooops!
