Very funny, I.T. gremlins

It’s a busy week for everyone, this week before Christmas. And I had grand plans to stay AHEAD of the curve on my charting… but it was not to be. The IT gremlins decided to have a little fun.

This afternoon, my work laptop decided that it was on strike. Or something. Despite all of my usual tricks (hard reboot, remove the battery, yelling the seven words you can’t say on TV, and oh yes… praying… (I am a pastor. Occasionally I remember that I can pray. And, just like you, sometimes that’s not the first thing I do…)

Anyway, despair gave way to dark humor, and during the hour-plus I was on the phone with IT not getting my laptop fixed, I came up with this parody. (Apologies to all you IT folk out there… maybe.)
