The old Switcharoo

Teacher: Did you change my password?  I can't login.
IT Guy: No. Why would I change your password?
Teacher: Oh, I don't know.  Because it is a new computer?????
IT Guy: Are you quizzing me?  I didn't change your password
Teacher: Oh, can I show you?
IT Guy: Please do.
Teacher: Ok, see I type my username then I type my password………and look it denies me. Are you sure the password didn't change?
IT Guy: I am….and here's how I know.  Every time you try to "login" you are actually clicking "SWITCH USER".  So in actuality, you have no clue if your password works or not because you never tried it.
Teacher: Oh, I get it.  How silly.
IT Guy: Yep, silly.  That is definitely not the word I would have chosen to describe the situation.

Lifetime Logins


Teacher: Can you reset my login?
IT Guy: What login? You left here 3 years ago?.
Teacher: Do you get rid of those?
IT Guy: No, we keep them forever.  That’s how we keep track of who use to work here.
Teacher: What?
IT Guy: Let me put it this way…..do you keep the keys to your house when you move out?
Teacher: I live in a condo.
IT Guy: WHAT???!
