    things kids do that you shouldn't really laugh at but do,

    just got a teacher ring up and say my mouse wont click on anything, so i walk down with a new mouse and yes it would not click on any of the desktop icons

    Then i thought wait a minute, had a look at the desktop background picture and they had done the old screen shot of the desktop and delete the icons trick on her acount,

    so have you come across anything that u found really funny even though you have to put on a proffesional face and make out your not impressed?

    Works best if you create a folder called My Porn before you take the screen grab.

    I walked into an IT suite and the teacher complains to me (in front of her class) 'this keyboard is really wobbly, I can't work like this' etc. etc. I calmly walk up and put the other keyboard leg out!! Her class just looked at her in disbelief as did I.

    Yes, lol. We did that to a trainee teacher once - shame his laptop was connected to a projector at the time.....

    That must have been embarrassing for her.

    I can't think of anything that has amused me although I've not been working in a school for long.

    Slight change of topic - things teachers do that you shouldn't really laugh at but do...

    Everyday, like turning monitors on, turning volume controls up, turning projectors on, putting paper in printers & turning them on, turning CAPS lock off, showing someone how to get the pictures off the digital camera which is just a case of putting it back on the docking station and then following the wizard that pops up on the screen and then hearing:

    ' Oh, I must make a note of that ' - funny thing is there is a large ICT part of the staff notice board with basic IT use notices on. I even print them on A3 with LARGE TEXT, pictures and arrows !!

    Problem I now have is my proffesional face has worn out....

    A teacher said when they typed the wrong letters came up. I went to take a look and they had gone a switched some of the keys round.

    I got called down to a class room the other day by a teacher who couldn't get a VCR to work. She hadn't rewound the tape.

    Accidentally turning on NumLock on a laptop is a common cause of that one, too.

    'Help Help' cried the teacher 'the world has stopped spinning'. whats the matter i replied ' we are trying to play a video through the projector onto the white board and it doesn't work.

    so over i trundled unplugged the video player from headphone socket of her laptop and plugged it into the wall socket for the IWB.

    she still can't look at me without going red. Bless

    Had a few students come up to me complaining they couldn't log on, so I trundle over to the room and turns out the whole class can't log on.

    I turn my attention to the power socket on the wall where the Wireless Points are (Laptop Trolley, which is quite stationary at the moment due to wheels breaking!) and flick the switch. Teacher lets out an "Of course!"

    I wouldnt mind, but its the third time in as many days that I have had to do it!

    True story.

    Got called to a suite by a science teacher, a Doctor at that.

    Conversation went "This computer does not work"

    I looked at the "computer".

    Ah, I said, have you tried switching it on?

    Look of disbelief, then he turned, tried to switch on the computer.

    At this point he hit a stumbling block, there was a mouse, a keyboard, a monitor but no F****ing Computer, It had been taken away the previous week to be fixed.

    We have one of those "computers" in our IT Suite at the moment - it's surprising how long someone will sit there waving the mouse to turn off the screensaver before they realise something is up!

    I ended up taking the mouse and keyboard away too, and will return them when I put the PC back...

    1. Keyboard letters swapped round to form swearwords
    2. Kids that lean on my "service hatch" and say "WOW, this door is thick!". We always respond with "Suits you.."...it's only a shelf on a normal door..
    3.The repeated cries of "I had yer mum last night", and "yer mum", "yer mum", "I had yer nan", then usually a smack as the first kid hauls off...got to love "fight club" as they're known.
    4. One of the more physical Year 11s last year who evicted a pond dweller from our office with a punch, and a well executed "throw him through the doorway" move.
    5. A kid that stood here and told the head we should "Switch to open source instead of the Joke that is Windows, and spend the license money on improving the student resources"..bless, I creased.
    6. Kids that got wise to SMT's cheapo radios, and got some from tesco on the same channel..calling SLT out to spoof calls, and randomly belching down their sets..
