You’ve got more hope getting a payrise.

The IT guy strides in purposefully, his arms embracing a big new ‘box’.

Five minutes of scrabbling around unplugging and plugging in cords, a quick turn on and log-in and he’s gone.

In his wake, you’re left with a brand spanking new computer. It effortlessly starts up. Programs open in a fraction of the time it used to take.

You can almost forget about the agonising months of hinting, pleading, cajoling and arguing that it took to convince your boss to get this wonderful machine.

Take a moment to remember, as you make the first of many calls to IT to find out why your email isn’t working.

See you next week.
