Highlight Your Attributes

We had just moved into a new building and, out of the blue, we heard
a VERY loud, metallic “BANG!” Figuring construction was still going
on, we went about our business. 15 seconds later, “BANG!” And, again,
15 seconds later. We finally decided to find out what it was. Our boss
had a stapler on a metal filing cabinet and was smashing it with his
fist to staple a thick stack of paper together.

This is the same man – I kid you not – who used a yellow highlighter
on a yellow piece of paper.

He also asked how to get back to “that screen” on his computer.
“Which screen?”, a coworker asked. “The one that says ‘Press any
key’”. It was the screen-saver.

  1. I call bullshit on this one because, there are no screensavers that show “press any key to continue” , when a screen is locked for logging in it says Press Control Alt Delete to get to the login screen.

    No points for your stupidity with computers.

  5. RE: #1… Except for the scrolling screen saver that you can get to say ANYTHING YOU WANT IT TO SAY. Except that one, right? Right?

  11. Reminds me of my old supervisor. She didn’t know how to put a shortcut on her desktop…or use Excel, or Word. Basically anything. And this is the woman who was getting a Master’s Degree in Computer Science!!!!
