    Strange that, I was asked for treasury tags yesterday, to which I had to say no I don't have them as I really don't! Staples and Hole Punches yes oh and paper clips but no tags

    I was asked last year if I was the new Site Manager by a visitor as I was wearing an old scruffy t-shirt and my work wear trousers, when I enlightened him that I was the IT Manager and currently was wiring up a new conversion in our building he then said I'm X your new teacher and I wanted to meet you at times like that I should have just been the Site Manager!

    I was thinking that and reminded me of when I worked in edu a while back - I fixed a PS 2 as the power connectors werent soldered on properly to the pcb and they had some funky material that made it very difficult to solder anything to the pcb but i got it re soldered and worked fine even after being knocked etc

    I was asked to sew up a kid's trousers that had split at the crotch. I gave him a couple of safety pins.

    I have been asked for the following items by some kids who were sent by teachers.

    10ft of Fallopian tube
    skirting board ladder
    sky hooks
    glass hammer
    reverse thread screws
    long weights
    left handed screwdriver
    holes from a hole punch
    and some rainbow paint.

    Some people clearly enjoy wasting time!!!

    "I need a really BIG favour" said one member of staff entering my office.
    Can you take a student to the toilet, the ones nearby are locked and the year 7 student doesn't know where the next nearest toilets are.

    Off I go to said locked toilet, pull out the master key I have, unlock it and then lock the door once the student has left the toilets. The advantages of being an ICT tech, keys to everywhere!

    You could have given them a cable tie, they're quite good for tieing back long hair.
