Comic Transcript

CUSTOMER: I just downloaded your upgrade to Nifty Doorways 99, the 99.9 update, and I’m having a problem.

ALEX: All right. What seems to be the problem, sir?

CUSTOMER: Well. The problem is that it’s been a few hours since this “update” started and it doesn’t seem to have stopped.

ALEX: Oh, well, it’s only been a few hours, there’s no need for alarm.

CUSTOMER: When will I need to be alarmed?

ALEX: When it moves from “for a few hours” to “for a while now” you should definitely call back.
