How to Ask For Help #3 - Phrasing your Request

Phrasing your Request
If you want to p***-off your IT guy before he even starts on your problem, forcefully insist that 'the computer' is the problem. After all, the computer has all these 'Glitches' (I HATE THAT WORD) that are hidden and just waiting for some random event to ruin your day.

Do not, for one microsecond consider the possibility that you may have inadvertently touched the track pad on your laptop or your 3inch designer nails somehow pressed the F-Key that caused a screen change and you to loose the three hours of work that you haven't saved yet.

Seriously, if you have a problem, please be humble about it and consider that it may be a PICNIC problem.
