I work with a woman who is a mother and about 10 years older than me. One day she took the overhead projector remote and started pressing random buttons. I asked her what she was doing and she would only tell me she saw me do it one time. Aparently she was trying to fix the sound. After telling her it had to be a software problem and her ignoring me I unmuted the video player.- Anonymous
