Your Bowling Help Desk At Your Service

Bowling Help Desk
This was the sign in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building Bowling Ally that I mentioned in a post yesterday.



[Note: I’ve removed the phone number so don’t try calling.] 



Yeah, I’ve heard about a help desk for a lot of things, especially for Information Technology, but for bowling???



Thinking about calling a help desk for trouble with bowling [equipment], I couldn’t help imaging how this may go and chuckling a little:



“Hello, this is the bowling help desk at your service–what is the nature of your bowling emergency?”



Or



“Press 1 if your bowling shoes are too tight.



Press 2 if you’ve dropped the bowling ball on your foot.



Press 3 if you’ve bowled 2 or more gutter balls in a row.



Press 4 if the bowling machine is in a frustratingly stuck position.



Press 5 if you’ve lost your bowling ball or need a replacement.



Press 6 if you need additional scoring sheets.



Press 7 if you’re a lousey bowler and need bumpers to help your game. 



Press 8 if your fingers are caught in the ball and you can’t get them out. 



Press 9 if you’d just rather be ice skating or going to the movies. 



Press the # key, if you need to speak to a bowling representative.”



Lastly, I wonder if they open a help desk ticket for the bowling challenged and what their response time is. 



Yep, help is only a call away when you’ve got a bowling problem in the works. 



Now, if only they could fix the highly troubled DC Metro system–there should definitely be a robust help desk for that!  😉
