    Deputy Head: "Are you any good with heights?"
    Me: "Err....I suppose so?"
    Cue spending the next half an hour clambering around the roof of a school building taking photos of holes that had been left by some cowboy contractors.

    Just had a great one...
    VIth Form girl comes to office, bright red, and her mate asks if I can help her, as the aforementioned red faced girl goes even redder and protests loudly - "you can't ask her!!!"
    me: "Depends on the problem"
    Girl: "I can't get my belly button bar out, and wanted to know if you'd have any ideas"
    I've never laughed so much!

    Fixed a water pistol today for the year 6 teacher, involved the old cotton wrap and super glue binding. He managed to break the rest of the gun before the fix gave in.

    Surely not!

    I get a few staff members brining in home PCs and i usually fix them or give it back with a technical diagnosis of the problem for them to take to the local computer repair place (just because id rather not get into supplying parts or voiding warranties)
