Conversations Around The Cubicle

So we have a new guy at work and I’m in charge of getting him trained. I gave him access to his voicemail and instructed him to listen to the tutorial and set it up, after which I would go through how he would use his phone and voicemail.

A couple hours later, we got around to reviewing procedures. I instructed him to log into his voicemail. He entered his password. “I’m sorry. I don’t recognize that passcode. Please try again.” He entered it again with the same results. On the third time the voicemail finally said “Please call back when you remember your passcode.”

*click* and it hung up on him.

I chuckled a little at that.

Suddenly goes, “I just remembered my passcode. Forty two ten, just like the tutorial instructed.”


I said, “Did it say, ‘Enter your new passcode – must be 4 to 10 digits.'”????

And then I BURST out laughing!!

He gave me a sheepish look and said, “I wondered why the system would want everyone to have the exact same passcode.” I nearly fell off my chair I was laughing so hard.

I don’t even feel a little bit bad for giving him such grief over it. Welcome to my world, New Guy. Welcome to my world!
