Now Itchy Butt Man has glowered by yet again! This time he wanted to know why the webcast he was trying to watch was skipping....I asked him if it was a long video. 30-35 minutes long...imagine. I told him he'd have to let it finish loading then replay it.
IBM: I don't know how to do that.
Me: You just let it play through one time, then it'll be completely downloaded and you can start it from the beginning.
IBM: So I let it play through, then download it again.
Me: No, you just let it finish downloading, then click replay.
IBM: But it's a thirty minute video!
Me: stare
Me: That's a large downloa.....
IBM: *interrupting* I GET IT. So this is not a fixable problem?
Me: I'm sorry sir, but we're sharing bandwidth with 41 other libraries. Downloads that big are going to be slow.
IBM: not listening, has already turned his hot-pink-1980's-band t-shirt-covered-by-a-red-and-white-checked-(think picnic table cloth)-jacket-with-khaki-shorts-and-birkenstock-self around and stalked off there are also some christmas bells involved in the's hard to explain AND look at, especially when I'm pissed

Luckily for me, it's time to go home and Itchy Butt Man will no longer be my problem!

next time he's in, I'll give you a ring :) It shouldn't be missed! Although I will say that this is the first REALLY over the top outfit he's worn in a while. It's been pretty staid for the past few months.
