A few minutes into the class, she got up to leave the room. That was when I reached between our computers and swapped the plugs for the keyboards.
She came back and started typing and immediately got a distressed look on her face.
She called the teacher over and explained that no matter what she typed, nothing would happen.
The teacher tried everything, but still nothing happened.
By this time I was hiding behind my monitor and quaking red-faced.
I started to type, “Leave me alone!”
They both jumped back, silenced.
“What the… ” the teacher said.
I typed, “I said leave me alone!”
The girl got really upset. “I didn’t do anything to it, I swear!”
It was all I could do to keep from laughing out loud.
The conversation between them and the computer went on for an amazing five minutes.
Me: “Don’t touch me! That hurts!”
Her: “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hit your keys that hard.”
Me: “Who do you think you are anyway?!” Etc.
Finally, I couldn’t contain myself any longer and fell out of my chair laughing.
After they had realized what I had done, they both turned beet red.
Funny, I never got more than a C- in that class.
