Windows 7: Truth In Advertising

14 May 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
Truth In Advertising

This morning on the way to work, I was behind this mini-SUV, not even a full sized one. It was painted up nice. The guy was a locksmith. It was not a name I had heard before so I assume it was a one man company. He had painted on the back "Rekey Special $99.99". Then at the top he has painted "Over 3 Million Locks Rekeyed". Using my rapid calculation this tells me that the guy has amassed $300 Million Dollars in career earnings and he is still driving around town. Yea, I believe that.

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

I'm thinking $300.000.000 just isn't what it use to be.
The poor person just has to keep working to keep the family going.

If it takes, say, 5 minutes to rekey a lock, and all he does is rekey locks 8 hours a day, 260 days a year (we'll give him weekends off but no holidays!), then he has been rekeying locks for 120 years. Must be pretty good at it by now
