Our techs and schools work tirelessly at the end of the year to ensure that device collection goes smoothly. Though they expect the occasional problem, they don't always anticipate some of the conversations they have with their students and staff. In honor of the end of the year, we offer you the top ten comments our techs heard during device collection last year.
All too often I run across colleagues who are supposed to be on vacation but are often still working. How do I know they are working? Because they are sending me work-related emails while on "vacation!" My favorite is when someone tells me they are going on vacation, but they plan to continue checking email and keep in touch with work because they do not want to come back to an overflowing inbox.In the age of constant connectivity, we feel that we must be connected to our work at all times and be ready to respond or resolve issues just moments after they appear on our device. This constantly-connected state will at some point cause issues with family and friends during non-work hours, and more especially, when we are supposedly on vacation.
