Rubbing it in
Quote from an email I got on Friday evening:
“My home computer has stopped working – it won’t boot into windows and I think the hard drive has probably gone… Can I bring the machine in on Thursday morning during Half Term (I am away from Sun to Wed)?”
So let me get this straight. Not only do you want me to have a go at fixing your home computer, but you also feel the need to rub in the fact that we’re in work while you’re spending your half term on holiday until Thursday?
OK, just wanted to get that straight.
No, really. I’m not saying I won’t do it. Why? Because you also said this:
“Many Thanks – there will be alcoholic related rewards for success….”
…and all was forgiven. To think they say teachers never learn!
