The scene: After trying to get online for 5 minutes a student realizes the machine is unplugged from the network. The student then hands the unplugged end of the network cord to the teacher. After examining it for 30 seconds or so the teacher shouts across the room."Hey IT Guy, do you think this has something to do with the problem"
Teacher: “IT Guy, the printer you just installed doesn’t work….what’s wrong?”
IT Guy: “Did you put paper in it?”
Teacher: “Oh, no……I didn’t think of that”
IT Guy: “Of course you didn’t…….why would you when you can run over here and tell me.
Story submitted by another IT Guy. He feels my pain.Teacher: The computer is dark, and wont come on. What is wrong? IT Guy: Do you see any lights on the computer? Teacher: No, what do I do? IT Guy: Turn it on? Teacher: Okay, that fixed it, thanks!
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: ” Is email down? I have not been able to get emails for a few days now”
IT Guy: Maybe no one is emailing you.
Teacher: “Everyone else is getting them”
IT Guy: Everyone else is more liked than you.
IT Guy: I’ll be right down.
IT Guy: No, you don’t have to…..
Teacher: See, I click here and…..
IT Guy: I believe you
Teacher: Then this happens
IT Guy: Please stop
Teacher: When I try…..
IT Guy: Why are you still showing me?
Teacher: Let me show you on Ed’s computer
IT Guy: MOVE! IT Guy: You have your messages sorted alphabetically
Teacher: So why can’t I receive new emails
IT Guy: You can….just click here
Teacher: Why weren’t they coming?
IT Guy: They were.
Teacher: Oh, they were hidden
IT Guy: Yep, Microsoft has a notorious reputation for hiding emails. THEY WERE SORTED WRONG! If you look here you will notice every email comes from someone whom’s name begins with an A. It didn’t make your curious all of your emails were from the same person and from 2007
Teacher: Not really. So who did this to my computer?
IT Guy: I assume Chinese Hackers…there always sneaking around schools mis-sorting things. Part of their plan for global cyber domination.
Teacher: Oh, ok. Thanks. In all honesty, I may have said Iranian hackers not Chinese
