The Best Response

My in-laws are not the best with computers, and email us quite often asking for help. Many years ago, Jack and I found this email in our inboxes:

Subject: Help!

Hi Jack and Emily! The computer is on the fritz again. I’m so sick of this thing! Someone from the Geek Squad is coming to look at it. They thought it might have something to do with our dial-up connection.

What are our options if we don’t use dial-up? I don’t want to sound uninformed when the Geek Squad people come here.


To which my husband had the best response in the history of responses:

Carrier pigeons.
