Dell just called to tell me that they were going to have someone call me. No, I'm not kidding. They called to tell me they were going to call.

Apparently the service contract on a server I bought is about to expire and they wanted me to renew. I didn't even know that the server had a service contract. It's a dev server, and sits in my office next to my other machines. If it goes done, it's inconvenient, but not the end of the world.

I told them they were wasting my time by making two calls ( and thus interrupting me twice) and they better not call back. I was a bit irate on the phone, I think. The Dell call center person was polite nonetheless.
