VOTW-Suffice to say the majority of people enjoyed Google's Pac-Man doodle a few weeks ago. Collectively we wasted tons of what could have been productive hours playing the classic game on the Google homepage. Unfortunately, not everyone was so impressed.
One woman called tech support because she was so frustrated by the noise. When she was told, "It'll be gone tomorrow," she asked if there was no way she could switch it off. The lady said she didn't have any friends who knew about computers so she had no one to ask. After the tech support agent walked her through how to close the Google homepage tab without closing everything else, she asked if they had gotten many Pac-man related calls. I can't tell if she was surprised or embarrassed to hear she was the first.
