Victimizing The Left

, , , | Learning | April 17, 2018

(I work in the main IT department for my university. We handle issues over the phone and in person. In our call center, there is a phone that is a direct line to each classroom. We call it the “Bat Phone.” If a professor has an issue, they simply pick up the phone, and we can troubleshoot or send someone onsite. This happens to my coworker.)

Professor: “Someone needs to come right now! I’ve dropped the mouse behind the desk and I can’t get to it now!”

Coworker: “Ma’am, the mouse is attached to the computer with a wire; you can just pick up the mouse by the wire.”

Professor: “No! Someone needs to come help me! I’m no good with computers. I don’t want to pull on the wrong wire. Plus, I’m left-handed! I can’t deal with this sort of thing!”

Coworker: *completely dumbfounded at the amount of stupidity* “I’ll be right over.”
