Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Q&A about words refurbished
Page 2 of 2 1 2
This thread really tickled my funny bone! I used to work in the cell phone industry, and we often offered free "refurbished" phones to our customers, as a way of retaining them as customers when they called to cancel their accounts, after losing their phones. (whew, is that a run on sentence, or what?!)
I never had any problem with this procedure, until one day when I had a trouble maker on the phone. He asked me just when was the free, refurbished phone "furbished" initially?
He had me there.......I hadn't a clue!
Troublemaker? Sounds like an ayleur to me [running just fast enough so Jackie won't cuff me-e]
Connie, c'mere a minute--I want to refurbish you...
Well, I guess I am a little tarnished and my handles are a little bent. Be gentle with me...
Oh, you're a little bent, all right! HUG!
This thread is an example of why I love this board. Until I read this thread I though furbish was what those Furbee toys that were so popular some years ago spoke.
then don't read maahey's link...
