The Test

The IT Support department has a film library of exactly 1 title.

The only reason we have it is for use testing whether a DVD player, or DVD playback on a computer, is working correctly. Its provenance is a mystery; the only history of it I know is that it has been customarily passed from technician to technician over the years. A little over a year ago, the guardianship of this hallowed object passed, fatefully, to me.

The DVD is Anger Management, starring Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson.

The funny thing is, I’ve never watched past the first minute.
