Funny things you hear in IT

Today I was talking to a couple guys that I work with and we started talking about some of the funny things that users say. The one today was pretty good, the help desk ticket came in stating that the users “Internet Controller Interface Card” was not working. The users logic was that they could not get on the internet but everyone else could. Another one was that the computer kept “Eating my floppy disks”. I talked to this user and they stated that they would put a disk in and nothing would happen, and they could not get the disk out. They decided to put another one in and see what happend. Same thing. I arrived on scene and found that the computer did not have a floppy drive in it. I took the case apart and found her floppy disks sitting at the bottom of the case.

Some days it is events like this that just make you laugh that make the day go by and make it more worthwhile. Now you know that some people just have no clue.
