Our management, in their infinite wisdom, decided that it would be much better for us to manage our own laptops than to have IT manage them for us.
Ofcourse, we have no idea what we’re doing so for about the 4th time in the past 12 months we’ve lost track of where our laptops are.
The solution was to go around to everyone and ask them if they have a laptop.
“@strongmangoals, do you have a laptop?”
“Yes, I do”
scribbles on a sheet and goes away
Comes back about a week later
“@strongmangoals, can you hand in your laptop please?”
"No, I can’t "
“Well, this needs to be done by the end of the week so I’ll have to raise it with Mr Boss.”
"That seems unnecessary "
Mr Boss, walks over this AM
“What’s all this about?”
“They want me to give you my personal laptop, I don’t think that’s right”
“You need to give your company laptop, not your personal one”
“I’m pretty sure I don’t have a company laptop, I can tell because this box on my desk isn’t a laptop” point to desktop
“Why did you say you had a laptop?”
“Because I do have a laptop”
“Do you have a laptop or no…” then it dawns on him
“Were you given a company laptop?”
Shakes head and walks off
I can’t explain how much joy getting to waste some of his time, in return for all these shenanigans, gave me lol
