Maybe Should Downsize Her Expectations

(I’m in my college dorm’s computer lab back in 2000. A girl I know from my hall, who’s a bit high-strung, starts freaking out.)

Girl: “My paper! I just finished writing my paper and it’s gone! The computer ate it! OH, NO!”

Girl’s Friend: “Hey, [My Name], are you good with computers? Can you help?”

Me: “I’m not that good with them, but I’ll look.”

(I literally just click around for thirty seconds and find the issue.)

Me: “Here! See? It wasn’t actually gone; the computer screen just wasn’t showing it. It was right here. See?”

(She had accidentally minimized the window.)

Girl: “YOU SAVED MY PAPER! YOU SAVED IT! YOU’RE AMAZING!”
