New teacher being given laptop by one of the techs the other day.
Teacher: “So, is this one of those battery operated laptops then?”
Teacher: “So it never plugs into the mains then?”
Tech: “...yes, to charge the battery"
Teacher: “O, I see”
...Me: *hiding behind screen so he can't see my laughing!

Ah - but that explains it...why do schools think IT teachers are necessarily the right people to be NMs? (yes garethedmondson I know YOU are -but you are the exception!)

But we work well together because he knows about things that I don't such as VLEs and webby/media-y stuff, and he listens when I tell him what we need to do to make the system better.
He is also somewhat younger and a bit shorter than me, and that helps!!
