    Classic Phrases:

    While your not busy......... ok i'm sitting at a PC, i must be just playing solitare.

    My internet isnt working.....no not my laptop my home pc.

    *while I'm frantically pulling cables out of the cabinet trying to trace a loop back* so how long will it take? So if we say 10 mins? I really need to use the internet......

    This xmas, I had told my boss that I was planning to shut down the network over the holidays, including all servers. He then asked when I was going to restart the network. I gave the wrong answer, to which he replied that surely he could switch it all on and get it all up and running.

    I took home all copies of the keys to my office / server cupboard and told him I would come in a day early. I also showed him the dilbert cartoon, the one where the pointy haired boss says that because he doesn't understand what it is that Dilbert does, it cant be that difficult.

    When is someone going to invent a system whereby a report of a message being "Spam" results in the sender getting an electric shock? 1st offence 12v, rising by a volt for each report...

    I can relate to all of those..

    Our password changes are usually:

    "Surname?"

    "Louise.."

    "NO. SURname?"

    "Louise Smith.."

    "NO. NO. NO. Your SURname is your LAST name. If I say SURname, you answer SMITH..OK?"

    Yes, I'm THAT pedantic with them.

    Also..hmm...

    "Why is user X not in the system?" - usually down to us not being informed of their employment.

    "Bloxx is broken."..no, NSS is broken..Bloxx is fine. Or the site doesn't exist.

    "My SMARTBoard is broken" - 90% projector turned off, 10% board unplugged.

    My favourite?

    "We REALLY could do with some of these..." - Head of IT, duly ignored and ridiculed.
