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……
Teacher: Hey, I think my computer might have died over the summer
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.
Often teachers drop garbage off at my office….usually when I am taking a dump…….and pretend they are doing me a favor. In actuality, they are just cleaning excess trash out of their classrooms and my office just happens to be closer than the dumpsters. Additionally, anything with a plug is considered to be technology, for example, a toaster. Here is a piece of garbage I found at my door one morning.
I still have no clue what that thing was……now it’s trash.
