A fellow IT guru relayed this story the other day, and I could not resist posting. I got quite a laught out of it:
“A salesperson (also a company owner) came up to me and handed me a black & white printout of a powerpoint presentation. He wanted me to “scan it in color and email it to him”. I asked him if he had the original file and he said “yes, it’s in an email but I can’t forward it to anyone because the comments from the guy who sent it to me are on the email”.
I thought I was going to hurt myself trying not to laugh but I managed to inform him that scanning a B&W document on a color scanner doesn’t magically colorize it – and that he can forward an email and not include all the previous comments. “
