Spencer wheeled into the Troubleshooting Lab with Tisha so they could work on a function that was giving both of them trouble. She logged into the Lab computer and pulled up her work over the network to start the troubleshooting.
Spencer looked at the line of code and saw nothing wrong with it. “I don’t see what’s wrong with this, Tisha,” Spencer said honestly.
That’s when it happened. Tisha said, “I want to show you something – something I don’t normally show to anyone.”
Spencer started looking nervous. He didn’t like Tisha that much, because she was always arrogant, loud, and very bossy. “I want you to see this and tell me if you like it,” Tisha said as she reached down and started unzipping her pants.
Spencer couldn’t believe his eyes. As soon as he realized what was happening, he shielded his eyes: he did not want to see Tisha’s privates.
Tisha’s rotten luck, because not only did the instructor notice what she did, but an administrator just so happen to be walking by and saw it too. Both staff were furious with Tisha and Spencer made it clear: he was furious with Tisha too. He explained to the administrator that he was very uncomfortable and wished to leave the office. He didn’t want Tisha to be anywhere near him.
Spencer was sobbing over the situation and wanted to leave the class. He quickly wheeled out of the room and went over to the break area across the hall. He wanted no one. He was angry.
Jessica decided to go check on him to make sure he was alright. “May I sit here,” She asked gently.
“I guess,” Spencer spat, still angry over Tisha, “But I really want to be left alone!”
“I’m sorry, Spencer,” Jessica said calmly.
As Jessica started getting up to head back to class, Spencer changed his mind: “No, stay please, on second though.”
Jessica sat back down and asked, “Is there any way you could help take my mind off what just happened?”
“I can try,” Jessica said. She thought about it for a moment, then said, “I have an idea. You know basic repair?”
“No,” Spencer said.
“How about I show you with my laptop how to do a simple RAM and hard drive upgrade,” Jessica suggested.
“Ok,” Spencer said – not sure where Jessica was going.
“Follow me back into the class. I have a new hard drive and stick of RAM for my laptop and I’ll show you how to do said upgrades,” Jessica said.
“Alright,” Spencer said, thinking it would hopefully help.
Jessica sat down at the back table, careful to avoid the Troubleshooting Lab where such things would normally happen, and started explaining the basics of taking the laptop apart. “It’s all rather simple really when you’re doing a basic swap for hard drives or sticks of RAM,” Jessica explained.
