    I keep a collection of different bird sized boxes. We seem to get our fair share of injured pigeons, gulls, and other wild birds here.

    I've just been asked by someone why the can't use the Epsom A3 from their office.

    I've replyed suggesting the quickest route from Epsom to the A3 is to head north along the A24 and then turn on the A240 (Kingston road).

    The IT manager is not impressed.

    I've had a couple of weird ones recently.

    1) Can I fix a students mobile phone. It stopped working after she dropped it in the toilet.
    2) Can I take a photo of the skin my pet snake has just shed. Even brought the skin in to school!

    Needless to say, I did 2) but 1) was a non starter!

    I got asked if I had a dual ended USB lead so he could transfer work from one computer to another. I suggested a USB stick . He looked at me like I was crazy.

    Think the best one I had was

    1. Can you fix this PS 2, whenever its moved it knocks the power out - took it apart and re soldered the power cables so that the power socket was firmly seated in place so when moved did not effect the power of the console

    2. Can you fix Dell laptops - ended up having to do all sorts to them from re seating mini wifi cards to totally taking them apart and cleaning out dust and reseating graphics card cables etc

    "Can you fix this stapler for me?"

    Tried, but got bored - Network Manager got curious, he got bored and binned it.
