    Re: What can I expect as a new ICT technician?

    One last tip for today...

    Don't be surprised if your headteacher walks in, chucks you a set of keys and says "can you look at "x"'s car? It's not starting..".

    First, we fix his in-car bluetooth, then we diagnose and remove/charge a duff battery on a TD Astra Mk3..

    IT techies..is there anything we can't do?

    I changed a tyre last term, filled holes in a wall, cleaned the floors, changed a light bulb.... the list is endless and I did do some IT as well

    lolol @

    "Just don't let them fluster you. I had one who refused to stay in his lesson yesterday and decided to bug me. I went to move some shelving, and he followed me until I suggested he might want to go elsewhere before I accidentally kneecapped him and limited his movements."

    That's made my day

    Thanks for that sirbendy lol.

    Re: What can I expect as a new ICT technician?

    I get people asking for things all the time.

    "God, can you give me the lottery numbers."
    "God, I really need to get this girl into bed!"
    "God, why do I have to come across the only nice teacher in the school after I have had to deal with 28 stupid ones and feel like crap?"

    erm ... damn ... have I given way my "other" job now?

    And yes ... before people say it ...

    I *DO* have an inferiority complex ... I *know* everyone else is inferior to me!

    Re: What can I expect as a new ICT technician?

    As Russ will tell you ... I truly do mean "Me"

    Of course ... I allow the rest of you to believe similar, but that is because I am a benevolent God ... who takes pity on you all ...

    Now ... begone little being. I am back off to the stars for the night ... I have new galaxies to create.
