Nah. This is SOOOO accurate. Especially since you KNOW you always get that call about 0.25 seconds after you think, "Well, I guess it's about time for me to sign off for my break" and about 0.25 seconds before you can hit the 'unavailable' button on your phone!

Solution to the problem: Sir, what is the first thing you see when you boot up your PC? My background image. Ahh, ok, then please go to your background image...
That guy was legendary. Since he was unable to do right-clicks and also had problems left-clicking where I wanted him to click I told him to use keyboard shortcuts. And every time I told him to press Ctrl + X he would put down the receiver (I could hear the 'clonk' when he put it on his desk) and use both hands .

After briefly trying to figure out the problem, you tell her to reboot the system. Now, after about twenty seconds, you ask her what is on the screen and she says “It is now safe to turn off the computer”. You tell her to now turn off the computer by pushing the power button. You tell her to push the power again to turn it on. After about another minute, you ask her to tell you what is the screen and she says “It is not safe to turn off the computer”. You then ask her to repeat the process and get the same results. You get out of chair and go to the next building to her office. Once you get there, you find out that she thinks that turning off the monitor is the same thing as turning off the computer.
