We've been in a slow multi-system organ failure with our communications systems around here. First the voicemail got hinky, then the fax died, then the phones went weird, and then our email crashed.
I'm not entirely sure how bad it is, (other than the obvious signs) but when we explained the trouble to the tech that was sent out to help us, he paused, then said, "Well, that sucks."
That's what you got for me, man! That's it?! We're in real trouble.
