He Wants To Be Left Aphone

, | Learning | May 22, 2013

(I’m at the college IT support office to fix a bug on my laptop and find all the employees looking bored. I walk up to one of them and he pays no attention to me whatsoever.)

Me: “Excuse me. I’ve got a problem with my laptop.”

IT Support Guy: *incoherent mumbling*

Me: “Sir?”

IT Support Guy: *while not looking at me* “How long ago did you buy the device?”

Me: “Uh… well, I got it at the beginning of the semester.”

IT Support Guy: “Have you tried to reset it?”

Me: “I haven’t even told you the problem yet.”

IT Support Guy: “That doesn’t work? Okay. Can you tell me the manufacturer of the device?”

Me: “It’s [computer brand]. But sir, I—”

(He proceeds explaining all kinds of stuff which is clearly not directed to me. He finally turns to me; it turns out the entire time I thought he was just leaning his head on his hand, he wasn’t. He was talking on the phone to someone else and is now looking annoyed.)

IT Support Guy: “Can’t you see I’m on the phone?”

Me: “Sorry!”
