IT Guy: If I switch over the grading system teachers’ gradebooks will be unavailable for the rest of the day. Are you OK with that?
IT Guy: Are you sure? None of the teachers will be able to make any changes till tomorrow? You are cool with that? I can not switch it back till tomorrow.
Teacher: Yep, no problem.
IT Guy: Ok, I will make the switch.
(12 minutes later the phone rings)
Teacher: I am trying to access my gradebooks and it said they are not available. What’s wrong??????
IT Guy: Are your serious? We just had this converstation like 10 minutes ago.
Teacher: We did? How come I can’t see my gradebooks?
IT Guy: I turned them off. I JUST TOLD YOU THAT!
Teacher: Oh, can you turn them back on?
IT Guy: No
Teacher: But, I NEED them now.
IT Guy: I told you can not do that until tomorrow and you said it was fine.
Teacher: But I didn’t need them then……now I do.
IT Guy: My apologies. I don’t think I did a very good job explaining this to you the first time. Tell you what, grab some colored chalk and meet me in room 205. I will see if I can diagram the meaning of “Stupid” and “NO” for you in pictures. (Click)
