Why do some people at school need to check out a laptop three times every single day? Even on the weekends, when none of the desktops are in use? I can find an open desktop every day of the week.

When you check out a laptop, you have to approach the circulation desk, sign a form, sign in on a clipboard, wait for them to check it out to you, plug in the power supply, then sign out on a clipboard and wait for the circulation desk to check you out again when you're done. Then they complain about how slow the laptops they are, how they're not connecting to the wireless internet and how they're not connecting to the wireless printer. Then they seem to think that they're supposed to wrap the cord over the barcode as tightly as possible when they turn the laptop in, making it extremely difficult to scan it back in. You know how to make everyone's lives go a lot smoother? Use a desktop! All you need to do to use it is sit down and press enter!

But desktops are so 1999.

Someone just complained to me that the sound on media player doesn't work on their laptop.

First of all, they had their headphones plugged into the microphone jack.

Second, they had the volume on media player turned all the way down.

Yes - people this stupid actually do exist.
