So I’m at work diligently avoiding doing anything constructive. It’s Monday Morning and I’ve got 2 hours of ignorant bliss under my belt. An “Engineer” comes over and disturbs my state of bliss. Her computer won’t turn on. The buttons stuck in. She says it usually pops out in a few minutes but she’s been waiting an hour and it’s still stuck in. She never turns the PC off cause the button gets stuck but usually pops out in a few minutes.

Pressures on. I wouldn’t want to look ignorant. So to establish my protected status as an idiot savant I tap the PC next to the button. Motion, shear genius at work. 3..4..5…more taps and the innie became an outie. And then there was light………………..


Time for lunch
