Amusing work related typo of the day.

This email popped up in my inbox at work and it was too good not to share. GIRS is a trouble ticket system used by the IT department for tracking computer problems that need to be fixed:

ATTENTION ALL GIRS USERS

In approximately 15 minutes the GIRS production server will be going down for an emergency hardware fix. This fix should take approximately 1 – 1.5 hours. Sorry for any incontinence this may cause, but this is essential in making sure GIRS continues to run.

I laughed so hard I nearly pissed myself.

  1. cute.

    I once had an entire page of Classified Ads that were similarly misprinted.  I couldn’t find the whole sheet again, but here’s a page that’s got a few of ‘em.

    Strange Classifieds

  2. Actually, when I first read it I thought it said ATTENTION ALL GIRL USERS and I thought maybe you’d changed jobs. Then I wondered what kind of job that would have to be. And finally I wondered why you have to keep the girls running.

    Then I read it correctly and wondered what incontinence is.

    If you had, at least they would have been sorry about it.
