Use Your Words!

Todays IT lesson…

Make-It-So-Mike:The image is hosed.

Corvette-Crazy: “What do you mean the image is hosed?”

Make-It-So-Mike: “The image is hosed…”

Corvette-Crazy: “You’re an IT professional! Use your words! Hosed isn’t an answer!”

IT professional have words. ‘Hosed’ is not one of those words!

Flaming Fingers


The Statement of the Day… 

Random-User: “I have a flaming finger with an exclamation mark when I try to save a file as Excel.” 

Help-Desk: “You have a what?” 

Random-User: “I have a flaming finger. It won’t let me save.” 

**It should be noted at this point the help desk person did go take a look… the user was attempting to save a file from one application from another application… 

Those pesky flaming fingers! Always causing trouble!

The Missing Link

And today’s winner goes to…

User: “Help! All my icons are missing!”

Make-it-so-Mike: “There’s no extra charge for that…”

User: “Oh you’re funny! But no, one minute they were there…then I saw a blur and now they’re gone. I was going to reboot but, I didn’t want to break it further.”

Corvette-Crazy and I: *Laughing like crazy*

Make-it-so-Mike: “Let’s go take a look…”

Make-it-so-Mike: *returns*

Corvette-Crazy and I: “Soo??”

Make-it-so-Mike: “…she some how hid her icons…”

The look on a users face when something unexpected happens and, IT doesn’t take it as serious as they believe they should…

It is the little things which amuse us.

Did I Give You Permission??

The statement of the day brought to you by Mr. Corvette-Crazy. Artistic drawing of Mr. Corvette-Crazy courtesy of Magnificent-Marge (she did give him more hair then he generally has – she’s always the optimist!).


And no, he never did give her permission to draw him…but she is a bit of a rebel. 🙂

The End is Near

And today’s statement from Corvette-Crazy while on the phone with Make-it-so-Mike….

“Your desktops weren’t ready. So I reverted. OH! And, your directions have a word wrong!

One word!

The desktops not being ready, and a reversion, eh, no big deal. But, one word wrong in the directions and the world ends!

Statement of the Day

Working along. Writing a query. Headphones on and I hear….

“When you’re done, you have to pull the rubber off. Just grab it at the top. It’s easier to remove that way; and less messy.”

The person then gets up and quietly walks away.

Please tell me I am not the only one who is questioning the contents of the rest of the conversation?

I almost…almost….want to ask who they were talking to…almost!
