Verizon Math FAIL

February 5, 2009 is one of my new favorite places to go for laughs. Check this one out:

I love when she reveals that she’s not a mathematician. Incredible.

mike and Charlie Bravo

EDIT: DAMN THE MAN! Apparently, someone got mad this was up, and had it removed. I smell a conspiracy. YOU CAN NOW HEAR IT HERE:

  12. rockermeg on February 6, 2009 at 4:16 am

    Oh that’s funny. Why is he complaining that’s a bargain!!
    Nice guys ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. soyuneik on February 5, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    So basically what your telling me is that you can obtain a job at Verizon with a Bachelors Degree and 1 year of call center experience OR you could just suck some old dusty c**k?
    F that. Remind me to punch this wall in later.

  14. alyeska39 on February 5, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    OMG! I found this years ago! I think soon after it happened. I still love it, though. It still cracks me up when I hear it. You may want to check out the original website
    And then there’s this:

  15. ThunderStrike on February 5, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    Frankly, I find your “I smell a conspiracy” comment funnier than the vid….maybe it’s cause I didn’t get what this was about…oh well, thanks for sharing!

  16. murry on February 5, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    This is super, super old, but still hilarious.

  17. ThePrincess on February 5, 2009 at 6:20 pm

    That poor guy sounds very frustrating .. ooh Honey , would you like to tell me what the hell is going on here ? Call me stupid but seriously i’m confuse !!!

    Note : kisses for Mr Bravo ..

  18. ravivandmikefan4life on February 5, 2009 at 4:41 pm

    I dont get it. I seriously dont get it.
    Why in the world would a phone company bill ppl .0002 cents? And what does the dollar have to do with it?
    I’m very confused.

  19. pepper on February 5, 2009 at 3:36 pm

    That’s right mike, DOWN WITH THE MAN!!! lol
    wooooooooowww people are idiots, that’s freakin ridiculous. and he talked to a bunch of people too! nobody caught it!!! goodness gracious.

  20. Curiosa on February 5, 2009 at 2:37 pm

    lmao at EDIT!

    Either way it doesn’t make any difference to me cause I still can’t listen to it. :)~ ha ha ha

  21. PankakeMunky on February 5, 2009 at 2:14 pm

    i love that’s been my favorite site lately also. that whole $0.002 and 0.002 cents argument makes me glad that i don’t download stuff on my phone for that reason. lol.

  22. NoMoreSorrowGirl on February 5, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    Hahaha!kill them both!…Hanging out with Charlie Bravo again huh!?…Love the site too…BTW, how the hell did you find it!?

  23. Alexandra1984 on February 5, 2009 at 1:55 pm

    It’s a theatre of the absurd displayed in real life!!Poor guy seems really desperate at the end….

  24. RachaelLP on February 5, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    New favourite place? Christ Mike, where have you been? ๐Ÿ˜€

  25. cuz on February 5, 2009 at 1:19 pm

    Haha, that was good! Maybe she taught he won’t recognize she’s not a mathematician? That blog has some good stuff to laugh. Thanks for sharing!

  26. Lvix on February 5, 2009 at 1:18 pm

    Damn these guys really don’t know there is a diffrent from dollars to cents… damn..

  27. durg on February 5, 2009 at 12:53 pm

    poor poooor guy..

  28. lucky_cat on February 5, 2009 at 12:49 pm

    LOL, funny.
    I would like to tell you this, it might be interesting. On my way in Berlin today someone gave me a flyer. “Audio Poverty” a conference at the House of World Cultures. Well, I was wondering that can be a topic of an international conference?! From the flyer: “Of all songs for sale in online stores in 2008, 85% weren’t sold a single time. Music has become a commodity that hardly any one is willing to pay for.”
    In case someone is interested: Weird? or not?

  29. Hybr1d_7h3ory on February 5, 2009 at 12:37 pm

    Bahahaha…That is priceless. Unfortunately this happened to me with Sprint awhile back. The shouldn’t call them “help lines” they should call them “frustration line”. When it happened to me I thought I was going to be on MTV’s “Boiling Point” and somebody was going to hop out of the bushes with a $500 check, but no just pure unaltered frustration.

    Thanks for the link MS and CB…Hybr1d_7h3ory

  30. Brittney on February 5, 2009 at 12:01 pm

    Wow. Just wow.
    Thanks for the link, though. lol.

  31. JODA on February 5, 2009 at 11:40 am


    WOW Mike, that’s so funny HA HA HA

  32. ManBearPig on February 5, 2009 at 11:07 am

    Oh call centres. I swear the only qualification you need to work in one is the ability to breathe. Even that is suspect in some cases.

    One of the funniest (and therefore most horrible) FailBlog posts:

  33. Hawaii_LP_fan on February 5, 2009 at 10:58 am

    I had visions of the first guy he called breaking out his HP calculator just to break it down and still he got the formula wrong. Haha. My brain was in a knot after listening to the two of them justify their calculations. Sounds like a “who’s on 1st” puzzle! Thanks for this crazy video Mike and CB.. :o)

  34. miKer0cks on February 5, 2009 at 10:52 am

    LOL!!! That’s so fuuny!!! You really know how to ”search” the web Mike, you find so interesting and funny stuff ๐Ÿ™‚
    Well I suck in maths but I even got that!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha…

    PS. I heard you are going on tour with Metallica this summer at a two-day festival which will be touring Europe!!! That’s awesome!!! I hope you guys come again in Greece!!! Last summer was unbelievable!!! I hope you had a great time as we did, and thx for that ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. sterilepoon on February 5, 2009 at 10:48 am

    Hahahahaha oh god, that was painful to listen to.

  36. Shinoda77 on February 5, 2009 at 10:34 am

    I wish I knew English better ๐Ÿ˜›
    ps: why is your wiki page so empty?

  37. SimplyMode on February 5, 2009 at 10:34 am

    Some people. Honestly.

    “It’s matter of opinion;

    It’s not a matter of opinon.”

    That part humored me a fair bit. xD

  38. Felidae on February 5, 2009 at 10:28 am

    cent, dollar… very intricate!
    who cares anyway?


  39. izzo on February 5, 2009 at 10:24 am

  40. Lynnie on February 5, 2009 at 10:24 am

    Are you serious?
    This is funny – I’m no mathematician but even I get that!
    First comment again.
    I need a life.
    Have a good day, MS and CB.
