A Gift from a Teacher

Teacher: Did you get the present I left you?
IT Guy: I’m scared to ask……what present?

Teacher: The two old VCRs and broken computer stuff I left in your office
IT Guy: OH!  You’re the person who left the broken garbage in my office.

Teacher: yeah, I though you would want them

Teacher: I don’t know…..
IT Guy:  My office is not a garbage dump (actually it is…..see previous post)

Teacher: I thought I was doing you a favor
IT Guy: You thought cleaning all the old, broken shit from your room and dumping it in my office when I am not there is helping me?  I’m all set all favors. 

Teacher: Fine.

My office is apparently a garbage dump


I came in this morning and found out a teacher was in my office looking for a “cord”.  Here is how I found it when I came in.  Sadly, I doubt they even found what she was looking for……

The Computer should be able to do that – #1

I have a whole series of coming entries where a person that struggles to turn on their computer will suggest that “the computer should be able to do that”.  Here is the first entry:

Secretary: I need to create a report from our school database to automatically create subs for teachers that are out sick

IT Guy: Sorry, our program can not do that

Secretary: Why not?

IT Guy: What do you mean……why not? It wasn’t built that way

Secretary: What if I give you this spreadsheet I printed out

IT Guy: Oh, that will help.  Let me jam it into the CD ROM ………hit the eat button…….. and now the computer is digesting the paper………processing……and there we go………we now have a sub scheduling program.

Secretary: You are an ass.

IT Guy: Yep
