Moral of the Story…


I’m working in my office this morning when there is a tap at my door. It is a teacher who brings in their own macbook. I open the door and she says. “Hey, I just put some cake in the staffroom that you can help yourself to”. My hopes rise, could this be it? Could this be the one time someone comes to my door to see me and they don’t need something done this instant? The music starts playing in my head, I see myself skipping through the field that was Windows XP default wallpaper…

“Oh and I forgot my password, can you reset it for me please?” She continues.

Moral of the story, there is no such thing as a free cake!
