typing and immediately got a distressed look on her face.

She called the teacher over and explained that no matter what she typed,
nothing would happen. The teacher tried everything. By this time I was
hiding behind my monitor and quaking red-faced.

I started to type, "Leave me alone!"

They both jumped back, silenced. "What the . . . " the teacher said. I
typed, "I said leave me alone!"

The kid got real upset. "I didn't do anything to it, I swear!" It was
all I could do to keep from laughing out loud. The conversation between
them and HAL 2000 went on for an amazing five minutes.

Me: "Don't touch me!"

Her: "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hit your keys that hard."

Me: "Who do you think you are anyway?!" Etc. Finally, I couldn't contain
myself any longer and fell out of my chair laughing.

After they had realized what I had done, they both turned beet red.
Funny, I never got more than a C- in that class.


That is just tooo hilarious!!!
I just about got kicked out of the university computer lab cause I was laughing too hard

It'* not as funny, but a real life one that happened to me when I ran my own repair company was a guy called me to his house to figure out why the DIMM memeory stick he just bought and cut down to fit the SIMM slot on his 486 wouldn't work....
