Fixed It [story]

SUPERVISOR: One of my employees told me she was having a problem with some of her equipment.  She talked to you about this?
ME: Yes, she did.
SUPERVISOR: What was wrong?
ME: Do you want the truth?
[SUPERVISOR nods suspiciously]
ME: Nothing was wrong.  She made a few common mistakes, got frustrated, and insisted her equipment was broken.
SUPERVISOR: Ah.  So, what did you do?
ME: The same thing I always do in these situations.  I lied and told her there was something wrong with her hardware, then I pretended to fix it.
SUPERVISOR: Sounds good to me.  Wait, you never did that with me, did you?
[Awkward pause]
ME: umm…No.
