    Small things that DO YOUR HEAD IN!

    It's Friday, I've had a tiring, stressful week, like most of us have. For some strange reason I'm feeling all short-fusey.....

    I get to work and start going through my inbox. The first two emails are regarding internet access. From different people, they both contain the same error. Instead of web-site, or site, they've spelt site as "SIGHT".....

    [HEAD EXPLODES]

    Jeez, how difficult is it?!?!?

    My children, or anyone else, answering the question "How are you?" with.."I'm Good"
    Good at what??????

    Also listening to every child in the class use the word 'like' several times in every sentence they utter

    True - I'm not sure which is worse though, having a complete lack of punctuation or some basic understanding that something should be there - leading to the 'shotgun' method where it inevitably ends up in the wrong place...


    Right - I'm off to calm down with a cup of tea and some biscuit's

    Double clicking links in web pages (particularly annoying when you see IT teachers doing it!)

    People who prod my screen when I ask them what folder something is in. Drives me nuts. I asked you for the folder name not to punch a hole in my monitor with your pen!

    The kids language makes me laugh more then irritate me. One memorable moment was a pupil telling a female member of staff with a new haircut "Miss, your hair looks sick!" followed by my colleage exploding grilling the kid while the poor girl was trying to explain "miss, sick means good!"

    You just might need a blu-ray writer to fit all those disks on onto one disk!

    Having nightmares. Last night, it strangely involved tech_guy too.

    The part that involved tech_guy was he was coming to our NM meeting, but with him living down the country somewhere he needed a place to stay. I volunteered our IT office, and the next bit I remember was he was lying on a shelf (like the cheshire cat) demanding some wine.

    I didin't sleep last night, and instead ended up watching scrubs until 3am, so thanks for that tech_guy
