The Big Fix

Restricted Audience Federal Crimes, Technological Thrills Entertainment Value: Coveted Four Popcorn Pieces
Low Budget ExperienceHead of the tech department for a local business, Pam** became known for her long strolls around the office with her coffee mug more than for her technical prowess. One day, she was asked to fix several defunct computers containing highly important research for the firm. After several weeks, managers asked her when the machines would be ready. "There's a little problem," Pam replied. "They've been seized by the F.B.I. as evidence." Apparently, Pam took the computers to a repair shop in a seedier side of Oakland, for a rock-bottom low price. Of course, it's easy to have a sale when you're a front business in a money laundering operation. After months of paperwork, the computers were released by the government, and not long after, Pam was released by the company.

bigred: Or, perhaps, as a compromise between the two, a 3/4 Nelson?

Hardly a quick fix, which is something you might otherwise be able to get in the seedier parts of Oakland.
I can understand why her employers washed their hands of her, not liking her spin, permanently pressing onwards with another.
[At least she didn't spill her hot drink on the computers and their keyboards, unlike some other person I heard about.]

If a computer's thirsty, you must let it drink, particularly a beverage of the caffeinated kind.

anonymous: Thanks for the clean humor! Sounds like you know a butterfingers!

sally: Quenching your machine's thirst might lead to a repair shop trip--do a background check first!

chris: Thanks! I'm amazed at the things people do!

Oh wow. You know the H.R. Dept is on vacation when an IT person is hired, who has to take the computers to the local Discount Computer Repair Shoppe to get them fixed!!

Was she not certified? Did she lie on her resume? I love her statement to her manager though, about them demanding the computers to be fixed... I can't the FBI has them!!

They must have pooped BRICKS!!

rob7534: Yeah, Pam was easy to hire and hard to get rid of! There were murmurs about ITT Tech. No one literally produced bricks, but they made her hit the road with her walking papers, thankfully!

Ironically, the part in here about the computors being seized by the FBI reminds me of another true story found at http://newsunheralded.blogspot.com whereas people are being arresting for money laundering and drugs.

By law, your bank has to report money transactions over a certain amount to federal authorities.

So believe it or not...you can actually be arrested and charged with money laundering and drugs just for having too much money in the bank.

Check out the complete story at The News Unheralded.

The headline for the story is "Your Bank Can Have You Arrested...For having Too Much Money" in case you're interested in reading it.

newsman: That's extremely interesting--thanks for sharing that story! The truth is, indeed, always stranger than fiction! Of course, you figure there must be some kind of exception for the filthy rich? (Paris Hilton must make exceptionally large transactions every time she goes shopping!)
