Not IT’s Department

| Winnipeg, MB, Canada | Friendly | February 28, 2016

(I used to work in the IT department for a well-known grocery chain.)

Friend: “Oh, you work for [Grocery Store]?”

Me: “In the IT department, yes.”

Friend: “Then you can probably answer this question: Why are the grocery prices so high?”

Me: “…I have no idea.”

Friend: “But you work there!”

Me: “Yes, in IT. I write and test computer programs. I have nothing to do with setting the prices.”

Friend: “Oh. Well, how about this: I was in [Grocery Store] the other day, and the lights flickered. Did you have anything to do with that?”

(I laugh, thinking she’s joking. She’s not.)

Me: “No. I didn’t.”
