On May 21st, the folks at Google decided to celebrate the little yellow dude’s anniversary in a very big way: by embedding a playable Google Doodle. The Doodle allowed you to play Pac-Man to your heart’s content throughout the day. It was such a hit that the game remains playable on Google.
One woman wasn’t quite as amused by the tribute as we were. Apparently, she had trouble studying because the game kept playing itself in the background. The sounds were distracting her to the point that she called tech support – either from her ISP or computer manufacturer.
It’s a good thing the tech person on the phone was well aware of the Google celebration. I cannot imagine the hilarity that would have ensued if he didn’t know anything about it. When you hear the silences on his end, you can’t help but wonder if he was busy gobbling up monsters himself.
