Printer Doesn’t Work

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.

How do they get these jobs?

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!

My office is apparently a garbage dump

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……

Is the email down?

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.
Teacher: What?
IT Guy: I’ll be right down.

Teacher: Thanks for coming.  Here let me show you.
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 

Kids vs Teacher – The DVD Player

I think this story is pretty funny.  Most rooms in our school have the same brand of DVD players. Apparently a few of the kids figured this out and swiped remotes from other classrooms.  When a sub went to show a DVD the kids would let it run for a minute then fast forward it.  When the teacher would get up to fix it the kids would let it play.  As the teacher would begin to walk away the kids would fast forward it again.  This went on for about 20 minutes alternating between the kids fast forwarding the DVD and turning it off entirely.  Giving in to a teacher’s natural urge to ask for help the teacher enlisted the help of the two kids with the remotes.  Shockingly, they couldn’t pinpoint the issue and the problem persisted until the teacher gave in and granted a free period,
