    This Tutor Should Have Been Screened Harder

    | Australia | Top

    (I am reinstalling the operating system on one of the student computers. I leave a note on it stating that it is out of order, and that students shouldn’t touch the computer. A tutor walks in, and reads the note. He looks at computer screen, and reads the note one more time. He then turns the computer off before I can react.)

    Tutor: “I think there’s something wrong with this computer.”

    Me: “Why did you turn it off? Who told you to turn off?”

    Tutor: “Oh, the note said students weren’t allowed to touch it.”

    Me: “Okay, there’s a loophole there, I guess. But why did you turn it off?”

    Tutor: “I don’t know.”
