We have the sir, can I have more - memory/space all the time, i too tried making it funny, it didnt work.
I also get, Sir is Mrs X/Mr Y in here, I look under my desk, then reply no, sorry!. Same if they say, have I seen.... or Do you know where Mr/Mrs is... no sorry I dont have a tracking device fitted to them.
Its when you are asked for more user storage/printer credits when in the coridoor.
Or Sir do you have a stapler/sellotape etc when in an ICT Morning/Lunch Homework club, so I empty my pockets then say no, sorry.
I could go on, the usual audio lead unplugged, socket switched off etc happens a lot.
Now that we're using proximity cards for catering/library/access control it's led to some interesting requests.... replacement bus passes, replacement library cards (as in public library in town, nothing to do with school), asking if they can have one turned in to a pay as you go credit card and the one-off (so far) brilliant one... can you print me a new driving license, I've lost the card bit!!!
Need to get some of that fancy new dry ink.Quote:
Colour printer in exams office having issues
New ink (compatible) is smelly making page's smelly

Wondering about have the printer serviced.
Also the usual pupils coming in saying:
"computer not working"
"in the classroom"
"that's a very big classroom can you narrow it down?"
"who's your teacher?"
"whats not working?"
End up trailing half way across school having to drop everything to follow the id... pupil. Only to find they need a replacement mouse or new toner. :mad:
I'm seriously considering lo-jacking our NM so when the head phones up and wants to know where he is i can give his lat long and tell her to find him herself!
I overheard a teacher the other day saying this to the class...
"If u put an email address in capitals it will get sent back to you because the internet thinks your shouting at it!!....."
Oh Dear!!! :/
Or if it's to do with their computer and they're fairly new, we might do an initial diagnostic using RM Tutor. We have room plans with computer IDs on to help identify which computer they might be on.
