Once came in a room because I wanted to use the scanner after hours, engineers had been trying to fix it all day long for a client.
It was halfway unplugged.

The amount of times I’ve been declared a “genius” for checking if something is plugged in, or fully plugged in, or just changing out a cable — well it’s been a fucking lot.
People are strangely averse to trying the simple things. I always try the simple things because it has the biggest bang for the buck.
