Part of my job is to support the diverse IT needs of the group of companies I work for; it can be quite interesting at times, but just occasionally… OK more than occasionally… people do things that just boggle my mind with their innocence.
Today it was email - I got a call from a lady at one of the other offices - her email ‘just isn’t working’… turns out she had finished working on some document or other and was trying to email it to a colleague, but it just wouldn’t seem to go.
I wondered if maybe she was just trying to send something bigger than usual and maybe wasn’t being patient enough while it was sending, so I talked her through the process of finding out the file size.
“It says two point nine two gee bee”
I just honestly didn’t have the words.
