Even geeks are funny

Sitting around this afternoon having our watercooler conversation someone brought up a funny thing that happened to him. We were talking about headphones becaues mine broke (that post is coming). And I said they were hte most expensive ones I've bought and kept. I returned a pair of wireless headphones 2 years ago because the treadmill interfered with them too much.

He said that he had a pair of wireless headphones that sounded great but were too tight on his head. I'll quote him as best as I can remember and refer to him as P for primary, and S for the Second person in the conversation. I was a party to it, but all I did was listen.

P: "I had a pair of wireless headphones for my TV. They improved the sound a lot but they hurt my head. Now I probably shouldn't tell you this, but I they did feel a little better when I finally realized I had been wearing them backwards."
S: "The R and the L on the headset didn't tip you off?"
P: "Well the infrared recepter was on the one side and I thought it would be on the side that faced the TV, so that's how I put them on."
S: "They were wireless not infrared, right?"
P: "I knew I shouldn't have said anything."

We were all laughing so hard. P was embarrassed, but I couldn't resist passing this great story along. This is a true story, all names have been changed to protect the innocent.
