While we wait to talk to a Roku representative on the phone regarding a technical issue, we wanted to take some time while on hold to thank Greater Rochester residents and businesses who have made this a very special year at The Rochester Voice.
They say my wait time is 28 minutes, so we have plenty of time for me to express our gratitude.
A year ago, in December, our daily visits numbered a little less than 5,000. The past month they have averaged 8,019.
Hang on a second, OK, just heard my expected time is now 30 minutes. Guess we have some extra time for me to express my gratitude. That's great. Because I wanted to let you know we have some very special new programs at The Rochester Voice.
First, we have launched a new discount for veterans who own businesses. From now on they will receive an additional 5 percent discount on any ad buys across the board.
Wow, it's a busy day at Roku, the expected wait time is up to 31 minutes? How is that possible the wait times go up? Geez, I've got Thanksgiving stuff to buy and errands to run. Oh well, no matter.
But let's get back to the Voice. I want to make sure everyone knows about our free Community Calendar on our Home Page. Anyone can use it to describe a charitable or fraternal group event for free. You can even attach a picture to attract more eventgoers.
Just click on a date or click on "View Full Calendar" and follow the prompts. It takes no time at all, and again, it's free.
Hey, now we're at an expected wait time of just 27 minutes. I'm starting to get a little excited; I mean will my Roku representative be a real creep or a totally cool person.
OMG, they said it would be 27 minutes and Rajel is on the phone, I thought I had more time to plan my opening statement.
"Ah, er, Rajel, a Roku charge was on my Hulu and my Hulu was connected to my Roku, so do I cancel my subscription with Hulu or Roku ... or you, too?
Oh boy, I'm in trouble deep doo-doo beaucoup!
I finally realized I wasn't making much sense, so I just said to Rajel, "Never mind, I'll call back when I have more time."
