The somewhat fictionalized office shenanigans of the Worldbuilders team.

Amanda’s Computer

Last week, Amanda was having some issues–she had a Skype call with Pat, and Skype wasn’t updating. It wouldn’t open until it updated, but her computer was being a punk and things were just not working. Usually the call of “Jeeeeffffffff!” would ring out, but he was busy, so Amanda got Brett instead.

Literally, Brett was just trying to open the Services panel to restart the Skype updater. Amanda’s computer didn’t respond when he clicked the Search bar. He was halfway through typing “services” before he realized it. So he clicked again. And again. Amanda told him to be patient while her computer caught up, and he started to get that horrifying realization that Amanda was used to a disturbingly slow computer.

Everything worked out–Skype updated and Amanda didn’t miss the call. But we’re thinking her computer might be an unnecessary stressor in her life, since it certainly gave Brett some nightmares. Steps may need to be taken.
