You know what's embarrassing? What's embarrassing is when your computer fails, you march it over to IT in a lather of righteous indignation - coupled with fear that your hacked hotmail account that you've been looking at AT WORK is what has caused the failure, and the IT guy powers the computer right up.
Because he PLUGGED IT IN.
Which you thought you did.
But when he walks back to your cubicle with you, you discover you did not.
But at least it wasn't the hacked hotmail that caused the problem.
