A lady called me to setup a wireless router and get her new laptop online and configure her email.

So I get all that straightened out, then her husband asks me if I can help him out on his computer.

He says he's having Java errors when he tries to get into online chat.

Ok...

So I uninstall java and reinstall the latest version. I then ask him to log on to the chat site to see if its working now.

He opens up IE and starts typing www.......

To make a long story short, I just spent the last hour on GAY.COM and their online chat. And the dude's wife was in the same room.

What the fuck?

Did he have a goatee, stubbly tatted arms and speak eloquently?

Why would you actually help him then?
Well, I didnt go into the job knowing I'd be setting up gay chat. It was a bit of a surprise, but I'm a professional. I really wanted to ask him why he uses that site being married, but I did the job at my $75/hr rate and kept quiet.

and then what happened?
Nothing much, I went home and scrubbed with Purell and made this post.

Thats what I started doing and it turned into a full time gig. I started at $40/hr then went to $60, now $75 - and Im still cheap compared to some of these guys charging in the 100's

My hypothesis is they were an old hippie swinging couple.

The lady was wearing a peace sign bracelet and the dude had a hippie beard. Both were in their late, late 50s or early 60s.

At one point I did hear them whispering amongst each other as I was working on the computer. Perhaps they were coordinating something.
