I’m just saying . . .

I love this list assembled at “The Heart of Innovation” blog.

“1. “The server’s down.”
2. “You’re breaking up.”
3. “Your email ended up in my spam folder.”
4. “I’m out of range.”
5. “My laptop crashed.”
6. “I can’t find my Blackberry.”
7. “I forgot to recharge my battery.”
8. “I couldn’t open the attachment.”
9. “I didn’t get a calendar reminder from Outlook.”
10. “I don’t remember which password opens that application.”
11. “I had a power surge and I’m using a dial up connection.”
12. “The magnetic strip on the ID card is damaged. I couldn’t get in.”
13. “I couldn’t find your fax number.”
14. “The main fuse in the building burned out.”
15. “My dog ate my mouse.”
16. “I don’t have an Orkut account anymore.”
17. “I had trouble getting online.”
18. “My cat urinated on my laptop.””
Unfortunately, sometimes they’re true. Don’t you just hate technology?
On today’s ‘to do’ list – dump the crumbs out of my keyboards. Windex the screens. Ahhhhhh.

  1. You didn’t *really* “Windex the screens” (that is, use Windex on them), did you? An excellent way to shorten the screen’s lifespan and screw them up in general…unless you have true, plain, glass screens, which is pretty unusual these days.
    Microfiber cloth (and a little plain water if needed), or the brush portion of the neato multipurpuse tool Lyrasis was giving away at ALA…

    Thanks Walt, you’re right. I use Windex on old the printer server PC and the TV’s since they’re plain glass. I use microfibre cloths on the five laptops since I tend to sneeze too often near them!
