    Words Fail Me

    | Michigan, USA | School

    (A student comes in to the Registrar’s office to pick up a transcript. After discovering that she never placed an order, I tell her to place the order so that it will be ready in the afternoon. After checking the system over the course of several hours and not seeing the order, I call the student.)

    Me: “Yes, I see you still have not placed your order.”

    Student: “I placed it hours ago!”

    Me: “Uh oh, I hope something is not wrong with our system. Did you get confirmation that the order went through?”

    Student: “Yes! I still have it up right here on my screen. It says right here: ‘Transaction Failed’!”
