Why Your Computer Just Made You the Fool [tf charts]
If you've ever worked anywhere with a computer (actually any tech for that matter) you've probably experienced this. You have a computer problem, and call the IT department. They start making their way over, but when you try to replicate the problem for them, it magically corrects itself!
Don't you worry, it happens to everyone, and we have a couple of theories on that. The first is that the computers in the building technically report to IT, so they don't want to look bad in front of the boss. Maybe they're not so different from us after all.
The second, and really better theory is that a lot of IT bosses are secretly digital green lanterns, and just hide the rings in public. Just the aura of our digital will possibly creates a pocket universe around us where everything works perfectly fine. Well, everything that's not ours anyway, because computers love to play tricks on IT too.
so when you "swear it was just doing it!" We believe you.
Most of the time.
