So I was reading through another thread by TWMIM *tips hat* and it got me thinking about some funny and entertaining things that have happened over the years while working.
I was wondering if some other folks had some.
Back in about 2000 I was working in a pretty big office for the cable company at the time and EVERYONE was using these battleship looking things at their desks called laptops. I, being the field person that I was and actually having to work in the rain and snow, had no use for such a monstrousity, so I shunned their very existence.
Which is why when a particularly nasty e-mail virus invaded I could not stop laughing at all the tech types being humiliated on a moment by moment basis.
This virus was pretty cool, I have to say even though part of my life now is spent guarding against them.
First it hid in your system, attached itself to your entire e-mail list and sent itself out. *yawn* Hardly new there.
But the first time you opened a window, any window, it would change your speaker settings to wide open, full bore on.
The very next window you opened, or closed, announced the following to everyone who could hear your computer:
"HEY, I'M LOOKING AT PORN OVER HERE!"
And continued to do so everytime you opened or closed a window. It was EPIC. An entire office full of people trying to mute their computers and being redfaced on day one was enough of a prize for me to cherish for a long time.
