It’s not bad enough that until I started working where I do now, I had no idea a USB plug would fit into an ethernet port. Today I almost cried.
The office is getting a remodel, and when the maintenance guys removed the shelves from the back room, it uncovered the cable for the internet that was coming in from the ceiling and down the wall. I figured they’d just build that into the new wall when it goes up. As I’m leaving, I hear my boss say “We don’t need that anymore, do we? None of our computers are connected to it, so we can just take it out,” she says to the head maintenance guy, and then calls to me in the front room, “Isn’t that right? All our computers now get internet from the air?”
I’m really not sure how I got to this point, but the best explanation that got the point across was, “There’s a box on the end of that cable that puts the magic in the air, and if you get rid of the cable, the box can’t give us internet.” o_0 I’m so glad I hadn’t gone home for the day yet.

Derpcipient: I am unable to see what you sent below. Can you tell me more about this?
Sender: I have to send them encrypted now. If you click on where it says “Click Here” it will allow you to create a user name and password. Please let me know if you have problems. Thanks.
Derpcipient: I have tried to enter a couple of different passwords and word with number combinations and it will not work for me. Are there a number and character limit I have to have?
Sender: I actually just spoke with our IT department…they said all you need to do is follow the instructions below and there shouldn’t be a problem. They said if your password isn’t complex enough it will tell you. Good Luck!
Derpcipient: It does not tell me it just gave me a red stop sign. That is why I wanted to know if there was a minimum character limit. What I put in below was 7 letters and 4 other characters. Sorry to be such a pain.
Derpcipient: Just to let you know I did finally get a password. You need up to 8 letters up to 4 numbers and 1 special character such as a dollar sign. Sorry for being so dense but there was no instructions to help me so I felt a little lost on this one. Thanks!
IT Commentary: If there “weren’t any instructions” how did you know that the password needed “8 letters, up to 4 numbers, and 1 special character such as a dollar sign?” For the record, it is simply one special character in a password no less than 8 characters. You know, like it says. NEXT TO YOUR PASSWORD FIELD…
This happens all the time.
Sometimes I can’t believe people say crap like this, then they say it to me.
When 900 characters your post reaches, trolled so well you will be.

The other day I was researching a purchase and came across this. I’m sure there is a lot of talk in back alleys about label printer pricing.
