FRIDAY FUNNY: Confusion In Computer Labs

FRIDAY FUNNY: Confusion In Computer Labs | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

In the past decade, the integration of technology has become a mainstay of facility management (FM) profession. Not always the easiest partnership, FM and IT can often clash for many reasons. (And as an FM follower married to an IT professional, I can easily understand how and why these clashes take place.) Still, it’s possible to resolve things peacefully as long as everyone maintains an appropriate level of professionalism.

But when the clashes get too intense, humor can be the most constructive solution, as illustrated by this Friday Funny (once again, courtesy of Peter Bance). Here are some tongue in cheek tips on how to confuse people at the heart of the IT customer base–computer lab users. (Disclaimer: this is just a joke–I am not recommending that anyone actually do these things.)

Log on, wait a sec, then get a frightened look on your face and scream “NO!!! They’ve found me!” and bolt.

Laugh uncontrollably for about three minutes and then suddenly stop and look suspiciously at everyone who looks at you.

Type frantically, often stopping to look at the person next to you evilly.

Before anyone else is in the lab, connect each computer to a different screen than the one it’s set up with.

Bring a chainsaw, but don’t use it. If anyone asks why you have it, say “Just in case…”

Ask around for a spare flash drive. Offer $2. Keep asking until someone agrees. Then, pull a flash drive out of your pocket and say, “Oops, I forgot.”

Borrow someone else’s keyboard by reaching over, saying “Excuse me, mind if I borrow this for a sec?”, unplugging the keyboard and taking it.

Run into the computer lab, shout “Armageddon is here!” and then calmly sit down and begin to type.
