So today I walk in on a giant panic situation at work. Our budget has apparently been depleted overnight and I am personally being asked to account for every dollar spent in the last year. So my desk is covered with reams of paperwork, and my friend and coworker K stops by to commiserate. I take a second to enjoy satisfying drink of coffee, pick up my travel mug at the base, and then watch as it does a complete 180, flips upside down and promptly loses its lid, spilling 20 ounces of coffee directly onto my keyboard.
I swear I could have practiced that move for a thousand years and not been able to perfect it. It was such a bizarre fluke. K and I literally both stared with our mouths hanging open and then promptly started laughing hysterically (stress nerves!!)
My other friend J overhears the commotion and grabs some towels to help me clean up. Now this is where it gets weird; it is about 90 seconds after the original spill, we are only halfway done mopping it up, and I say to them "the worst part out of all of this is going to be tracking down IT . I have no idea how to get a new keyboard."
You see, I work in healthcare. The red tape to do anything will destroy your soul. and you are far more likely to see a Sasquatch wandering the halls then you are to have a real live IT person help you out.
The words are literally still coming out of my mouth when around the corner comes an IT guy pushing a large metal cart. A large metal cart filled with NOTHING BUT KEYBOARDS!!!!
It was so bizarre I swear I should have immediately bought a lotto ticket.
Too bad the rest of my day was a nightmare!!!!

I remember a panic on a text BBS (Compuserve) caused by someone claming to be able to watch other posters because they had reverse video on *their* computer.:D

So Lizard Queen, you get a keyboard? I can just imagine you asking for one and the IT tech says, "No, these keyboards are for Acqusistions/the Sasquatch/the dumpster."

In response to the OP's Topic regarding the "Where's the Any Key?" joke...

Trust me, it could be a lot worse. How about those idiots who have to get their computer fixed because they broke its cup holder, finding out the hard way it's not really a cup holder? *hint, hint, nudge nudge*? ;)

No just that I know most of the dialogue and call back lines :D:lol::angel:

30+ years of RHPS will do that.:devil:
