The following Call-of-the-Day was submitted by [name not important]

I spoke with a lady who opened the conversation by explaining she was
having trouble in her marriage. In an effort to please her husband, she
(a PC user) purchased an Apple printer and connected it to her husband's

The problem is that she'd connected the printer while the computer was
on, and now the computer was showing only a grey screen. I suggested she
disconnect the printer, shut down the computer, and restart it. "It's
still a grey screen," she said.

"Are you sure you disconnected the printer?" I asked.

"Well, there's a little cable-thingy hanging off the back, does that
matter?" I explained that it did, and after disconnecting it she was able
to successfully bring the computer back to life.

"What do I do now?" she asked. "My husband will be home soon."

"Do you still have the box the printer came in?" I asked


"Put the printer back in the box and put a bow on it."
