Miss Information is meaner than usualMiss Information is irritated today because she got her marks back from her history professor. It's not bad. Probably an A-. Still, she wanted to do better. Actually she wanted to be plucked from academic obscurity and made university chancellor but her hopes have been dashed.
In order to cope with this disappointment she spends the afternoon snarling at people. She takes most of her angst out on Fairy Believing Guy--a middle aged man who, well, really believes in fairies.
FBG wants to know why he can't get the Internet to start.
The library has two types of computers--the ones you log in with your library card and the ones where you press the big "start" button. Miss Information asked FBG to show her what he did. He went to a computer with the big "start" button. He asked what he should do.
Well, duh. The only thing on the screen is the big "start" button. How could this possibly be confusing?
After getting the computer started Fairy Believing Guy wanted to know why there was no big "start" button on the first computer he had tried. It is because the first computer wanted him to input his barcode number. He hadn't. He whimpers. How was he supposed to know? Well, dumbass, maybe if you looked at the screen? You know, actually tried to read the information that's there instead of just pressing keys randomly?
Stupid Fairy Believing Guy.
Also seen in the library today:
Dog Show Guy
Really Smelly Guy
Woman with Badly Behaved Children
Group of Toddlers with Bells (why do they let them have bells?)
Miss Information is in no mood for this.
