    Ha that was pretty good. I can empathize. Sent it on to all my colleagues that I provide IT support for.

    Then there was the time I had a user we were developing a system for who was absolutely terrified of computers. She was a dead ringer for Ethel Merman. My part of the job was to design the screen interfaces she would use to enter and edit data.

    I had a prototype ready I wanted her to play with to see if she liked it, to watch her use it, etc. So I invited her over to my office. The work station backed up to a support pillar. At the top of the pillar was a fire alarm bell.

    You know what happened. I know you do. She filled the screen in with her data, hit ENTER – and the alarm went off.

    She screamed, fell backward in the chair onto the floor – and her wig fell off.

    She tried to get me fired. Seriously.

    We laughed for years.
