In my time working at a school I have discovered that teachers are for the most part pack animals. Everything they do is in some sort of little group. This is evidenced by the fact any time a teacher has a computer issue five other people will report it before the person with the actual problem. Sadly, the actual issue the other pack members report is almost never the real problem.
It usually unfolds something like this:
IT Guy, did you hear Mrs. X is having trouble with their online gradebooks
that usually morphs into something like
IT Guy, Mrs. X can not turn on her computer because she has a virus
followed by the catch all diagnosis
IT Guy, the server must be down
This syndrome reminds of the famous Purple Monkey Dishwasher scene from the Simpsons.
