Disconnected

I know this should come as no surprise to anyone but...its Monday. It was a gorgeous weekend but it had to end (I guess). And now I'm here, getting ready to go on a long vacation but not quite finding the motivation to get everything ready to continue in my absence. My day was made more interesting (read crappy) by the same kind person who opened that virus a few days back. Because she might factor into life more often if she keeps this up, we'll give her a name. We'll call her Edwina: Mistress of the Insanely Stupid.

Here's what played out on Friday:
Me: Hello, Edwina: Mistress of the Insanely Stupid!
Her: Hey.
Me: How's it going?
Her: I'm kinda freaking out. I left my laptop power cord at home.
Me: Hmm. That sucks.
Her: Yeah. Do you happen to have an extra?
Me: No. But once Guy gets in, he does.
Her: Ok. Thanks.
Me: No problem. See ya, Edwina: Mistress of the Insanely Stupid!

What did she do? Did she ask Guy about the power cord? Hell no. She went home.

Fast forward to this morning:
Me: Good morning Edwina: Mistress of the Insanely Stupid!
Her: Good morning.
Me: How's everything going?
Her: Not good.
Me: Oh, why's that?
Her: Are you sure you don't have an extra power cord?
Me: Yes, Edwina: Mistress of the Insanely Stupid, I'm positive.
Her: Oh no!
Me: Did you ask Guy? On Friday?
Her: No.
Me: Ask him today. He has one. I checked.
Her: Ok.

Did she ask Guy? Hell no. She went home. So, I ask you Edwina: Mistress of the Insanely Stupid, what is your problem?
