Plot twist: in this one, I am the Client From Hell …

Me: I don’t know what happened, but my computer just shut off. First all the programs, then the whole computer.

IT: What were you doing right before that happened?

Me: Just replying to an email.

IT: Alright, I’ll be right there and take a look at it.

He comes to the office, sits down at my desk, switches the computer back on and - it works just fine. He does some more checks I don’t really understand, then shrugs.

IT: I can’t seem to find any problem. It works for now, but let me know if it happens again.

I thank him, he gets up, I sit back down, ready to go back to work – and it starts happening again!! Fortunately, he’s still standing right next to me. He looks at the computer for a moment, then he checks something under the desks – and he comes back up laughing. He’d just solved the mystery:

To sit more comfortably I use one of these footstools. Today, my colleague who sits next to me, had put her bag under the desk. Somehow during work I must have moved the footstool a little – I pushed it into the bag, and the bag pressed the computer’s power switch.

So basically, my computer shut off because I shut it off. With my feet. And my footstool. And my colleague’s bag.

I apologized at least three times, and his next coffee was on me.

Want to know if freelancing is for you?
