Client accidentally writes haiku in service request

2 posts in this topic

So a client sends me this:



Washing machine not working
Very puzzling 
Water on floor 
Water still in machine 
Don't think it's spinning 
Please call
Sent from my iPhone
Seems like it is just a haiku that needs tweaking.  So I do, and a few seconds later send her this:

Rearranged your haikus to fit.  Added a syallable or two.  Took a liberty with the rules and counted "puzzling" as 3 sylables, since it is often pronounced as "puzzle-ing", especially in older movies maybe with Charlie Chan.

Water on the floor

Jen says please call me

Seems like things sent from phones make great material for haikus.

Got this today from the same client as my previous post:

My dishwasher is broke.
Can you help!
Please call.

Add an "n" to "broke", combine two lines into one, and it turns into a haiku:

Can you help!  Please call.
My dishwasher is broken.
