    Mogwai, Mo’ Problems

    | North Carolina, USA | Employees, Geeks Rule, Technology

    (Note: I work as IT support for hospitals and private practices.)

    Me: “Thanks for calling. How may I help you?”

    Nurse: “The doctor’s computer is broken.”

    Me:  ”What’s wrong with it?”

    Nurse:  ”Documents are no longer printing. Everything worked fine this morning. I think it’s gremlins.”

    (I chuckle at the reference and get connected to her computer. It’s a simple fix, so it doesn’t take me long at all.)

    Me: “There you go. Good as new.”

    Nurse: “It’s working! What did you do?”

    Me: “I opened the blinds and flooded the computer with sunlight, hopefully killing off all the gremlins!”

    Nurse: *laughs* “Well, okay. Anything I can do to prevent this issue in the future?”

    Me: “Don’t feed your computer after midnight?”
