under half a ton of postcards, baby pictures, stuffed animals, dried
flowers, bowling trophies and children's art. We don't have a life, and
we find it deeply moving to catch a fleeting glimpse of yours.
- Don't write anything down. We can play

an IT person says he's coming right over, go for coffee. That way you
won't be there when we need your password. It's nothing for us to
remember 347 screen saver passwords.
- When you call the
help desk, state what you want, not what's keeping you from getting it.
We don't need to know that you can't get into your mail because your
computer won't power on at all.

importance, delete it at once. We're just testing.
- When the photocopier doesn't work, call
computer support. After all, there's electronics in it.
- When an IT person tells you that computer

We're not that bad to our very dear IT people ... are we?
an IT person tells you that he'll be there shortly, reply in a scathing
tone of voice: "how many weeks do you mean by shortly?" That keeps us
