Site Survey Tip #1

Performing site surveys can sometimes be a long and repetitive task. I have been thinking of putting some tips/jokes together to help other WLAN pros make it more interesting!

​Tip #1 – Entering in someone’s office

“Usually, when you enter in someone’s office, the conversation will go as follow:
 – Me: “Hi, I’m here to perform a Wi-Fi analysis. Is it ok with you if I come in your office for a few seconds?”
 – Office Occupant: “No problem, come on in!”

And then I step in and do my work. Sometimes the conversation continues with the occupant, sometimes it doesn’t!

But now, here is a joke I hear a lot as a reply to my initial question:
 – Me: “Hi, I’m here to perform a Wi-Fi analysis. Is it ok with you if I come in your office for a few seconds?”
 – Office Occupant: “No problem, come on in! It will be $5”

I was usually replying with a laugh and entering the office anyway to do my job. But lately I have found a new way to answer this joke in order to bring a little bit more fun to the task ;)! This is how it goes:
 – Me: “Hi, I’m here to perform a Wi-Fi analysis. Is it ok with you if I come in your office for a few seconds?”
 – Office Occupant: “No problem, come in! It will be $5”
 – Me: “Do you want good Wi-Fi in your office?”
 – Office Occupant: ‘Sure I do”
 – Me: “Well, in this case I’ll take the $5 :)”

And now I’m collecting 😉

Enjoy your surveys guys (the “guys” includes girls, obviously!)

And look out for Tip #2.

​Cheers’
