Some people are so weird

A customer just sent in a file on a DVD. The weird thing is, the file is only 556 KB. It would fit on an old-fashioned floppy disk (though I prefer a DVD to a floppy disk) or attach to an e-mail and still zip through on a modem. There was nothing else on the disk. It is not a rewriteable DVD.

Most people don't even look at the file size anymore .....

They just assume that big is good .... any necessary ......

Tell her that next time she should send it to you on a portable hard drive - and that they're single-use. :)
