Computer Relocation

Teacher: I want my computer on the other side of the room
IT Guy: There is no power over there
Teacher: Why not?
IT Guy: I don’t know, I didn’t build the school
Teacher: Can you put one in?
IT Guy: I am not an electrician
Teacher: Can we hire one?
IT Guy: It would be kind of expensive…..why do you want to move it?
Teacher: No reason…..I just wanted to try it this year

Another Final Exam Problem

Teacher: Where are my Final Exams?

IT Guy: I didn’t receive them.  Did you name your column FINAL?

Teacher: Of Course.

IT Guy: Of Course?   I think I will check……(opens up gradebook)

Teacher: See there it is….

IT Guy:  You are correct.  It does say FINAL…unfortunately you decided to add “EX” to the end

Teacher: So what…..it still says FINAL

IT Guy:  IT CAN ONLY SAY FINAL!  You can’t add letters to satisfy some fetish you have to screw things up.

Teacher:  Why does it matter?

IT Guy: I don’t know.  I didn’t build it.  Why is it so hard to follow a set of directions that has 3 steps? I seriously believe you are screwing this up on purpose?  Otherwise your college degree is fake…….

PE Teacher Explains International Politics

Student submitted Story:  

A bit of background first, essentially this guy was “teaching” class one day when some girl piped up with a question about war and why we would enter into one. This is what he said:

Teacher: “its like this, say a larger country like China started to pick on a smaller country like Puerto Rico. The U.S. would go to war to defend the smaller country.”

Student: Raising my hand. “ummm Puerto Rico is U.S. Territory, if China attacked it we would have to go to war.” 

Teacher:  “Shut up”

Invalid Date

Teacher: I’ve been trying for the last 15 minutes to get Microsoft Access to accept a date and it won’t do it. 

IT Guy: What is the error message?

Teacher: It says “Invalid Date”

IT Guy: Are you using a valid date?

Teacher:  Of course, I checked it 10 times to be sure.  I am typing the exact date I was given by the student. There must be something wrong with the program.

IT Guy: Ok, I’ll come look

Walks down to teacher lounge….

IT Guy: I think the problem is that you made up a date that doesn’t exist.  February 31st is not a real date.  It never has or for that matter ever will be.

Teacher: Oh!  I was just making up dates.

IT Guy: Yes you were.   I thought you were inputting the exact date from a sheet?

Teacher:  No, I just made it up.

IT Guy: yeah…….good job with that.
