I don't blame em. A photocopier doesn't rely on high technology, the only thing that can make one of those things work properly is dark magic and sacrifice.

a virgin sacrifice

I'm not sure we'd find one around our office. :p

Well, if the guy was trying to do something complicated, it would have been understandable. However, 15 minutes to try to get a copy of a couple of things was outta hand.

While I should let the Virgin sacrifice comment slide.......

You know you're in trouble when... Your own wife starts a thread calling your sorry ass out in the bilge. . .

He's a conversation I had with our IT guy this week:

Me: [long detailed explanation including error codes]

IT guy: "Hm"

Me: I did >>> a..... >>>>> b..... >>>>> and got <<<<<< ////// and got error code whatever

IT guy: "Hm"

Me: So I did ..... <<<<< ***** and ______ and got error code whatever

IT guy: "Well that's odd"

Me: "No **** Sherlock"

IT guy (getting attitude): "Well you don't have to be huffy"

Me (giving him a slight taste of huffy): *&(8******$$$%%!

Actually, I didn't say that. I just went around to everyone's desk and got their list of error and fixed 90% of them, called the guy back and told him problems 1-whatever were resolved. :D

No Paul, it's only trouble when she calls your sorry ass out in court...... :)

You know you're in trouble when...

The hand washing sink at your favorite eatery has been out of order for a month and none of the staff knew.... :(

It's IT support like that which has brought about our own internal "Self Help Group" for computer users. :rolleyes:
