Are you sure your disc drive has stopped rotating, or are you just ignoring the messages?


Re: I can believe it!

"i'm getting an error message so I figured that was a thing for you IT guys to deal with"

"What's the error?"

"No idea, I closed it because I have you on the line now."

"What were you trying to do? Did something not work?"

"Oh i don't remember, it wasn't very important, I just thought you'd like to know I got an error, since you guys like looking at those."

At that point the caveman in me had a considerable urge to turn the caller into a cavepainting. Lucky for her however she had set me up with fresh coffee and pastries ftom the kitchen on numerous occasions, so instead I thanked her profusely for chipping in so excellently, and trying to me with my work, but that it really wasn't neccesary to call in every single error: only the ones that jam up your work. The other error bucket we empty out weekly, so you don't have to worry.
