They Just Compute

(Despite being one of the go-to guys whenever there’s a problem with one of our computers at work, I consider myself fairly incompetent with computers. Thankfully most problems at work can be solved with very basic troubleshooting skills, but my private laptop is another matter. There’s a coworker that I’ve flirted a little with, but so far, nothing more. I’m a bit awkward due to some particularly nasty earlier dating experiences.)

Me: “Hey, [Coworker]. You’re pretty decent with computers? Right?”

Coworker: “Yes.”

Me: “Um… Would you like to come to my place and defragment my computer?”

Coworker: “I… what? Yeah, I could do that.”

(She was nervous about going to the place of an almost stranger. After fixing up my laptop we watched ‘Hackers’ before she took the bus home. Been married three years now!)
