Teacher @ School Where I Work: “Travis, I don’t know if it’s just not hooked up or what, but it won’t work.”
Me: “Okay, I’ll look at it.”
I hit the power button, and the system boots up and comes on.
Teacher: “Oh my god, Travis. What did you do?”Me: “Umm…I turned it on…”Teacher: “Oh my god, Travis. I’m so terrible with computers.”
All I’m saying is, I’m glad she’s not teaching high school. I felt really bad when I told her I just turned it on. Really bad.
Those power buttons can be a sumbitch though.
Sorry. I couldn’t resist.
