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……
Volunteer: I need to install some software – can you do it?
IT Guy: Actually, I’m kind of busy….can you just throw it into your CD ROM and keep clicking next
Volunteer: I don’t know…….I guess I can try
IT Guy: Thanks…..you are very brave
Volunteer: Ok, I’ll call you back when I’m in front of the computer
IT Guy: But….why?
Volunteerr: Ok, I am in front of the computer.
IT Guy: Great, put the disk in
Volunteer: I can’t find the computer
IT Guy: What do you mean? You just said you were in front of it.
Volunteer: I am but I can’t see the hard drive.
IT Guy: Can’t see the hard drive, huh? How bout that? Did you look on the floor.
Volunteer: I sure did and on the desk.
IT Guy: Good thinking. Ok, well there is a three foot cord connecting the monitor to it. Can you circle the machine in a three foot circumference till you step on it.
IT: Of course not, I’ll be right there.
Volunteer: I think someone might have moved the computer
IT Guy: Actually, it’s right here. The monitor is sitting on top of i
Volunteer: Oh, that is the computer
IT guy: It sure is…..you giant idiot. Just throw the CD in it and hit next
Volunteer: Where does the CD go?
IT Guy: Why don’t I just do it? You probably won’t be able to find the next button either
Teacher: Hey, I think my computer might have died over the summer
Teacher: I have this list of emails I wrote down. How can I get them in the computer?
At our school, a students 2nd semester grade is a concoction of their 3rd qtr, 4th qtr, and Final Exam grades weighted 40, 40, 20 respectively. Pretty straightforward I thought.
Sister : IT Guy, I can’t change my weighting.
IT Guy: Did you click the “Change” button?
Sister: No, should I try it?
IT Guy: yep, let’s give it a go
Sister: It didn’t work
IT Guy: What do you mean it didn’t work? Was there an error message?
Sister: Yeah, do you want me to read it?
IT Guy: No, thanks……I can see it through the phone
Sister: Oh, ok………………….it says “invalid, expected integer”
IT Guy: Did you put a number in the box?
IT Guy: I think I’ll come down for this one
IT Guy: I don’t know, Sister. It’s truly a mystery.
