Me: "So where are you trying to log in from?"
We were having trouble with one of our websites and I needed to know which site the student was trying to log into.
Student: "The library."
Ok. I asked for that. The student was not being a smart ass. It was an honest answer.
Me: "I meant what address."
Yes. That is exactly how I worded it. Obviously I did not learn my lesson with the first answer I received. I was hoping to get the web site address.
Student: "I don't know. Let me check."
I hear the student set the phone down. A few minutes later he picks the phone up and gives me the physical address for the school.
I really deserved that.
Everyone I worked with got a good laugh at my expense. It would have been wrong to not share that call.
