What a Computer is Not Good For

My husband is off at meetings for 10 days. His computer more or less died the first day out and has since gone from bad to worse. The experts are examining it tomorrow. In the mean time, someone lent him a computer to finish preparing his speech which was presented this morning without incident.

But I had to laugh when I was going through his email inbox this morning. One email said, "Hey Gary. I'm sitting on your right. Can I have a meeting with you over lunch?"

So I, in Dallas, wrote back: "First of all, Gary's computer died. Second, he's not reading email. Third, he can't see well enough to read emails during all the boring meetings like everyone else. If you want to talk to him, then tap in on the shoulder and look him in the eye and talk to him!"

The person emailed back, "OK, I will."

Aren't computers great??
