divide and conquer

today I was suddenly called into a meeting that had already been in session for what seemed like hours. Almost every chair in the room was taken up by brillaint engineers and computer programmers. some very bright people in there. They were almost all men and all were quite agitated over something. "Come here, we need your help." It was a little intimidating. I'm sure I couldn't have helped them with anything except maybe a little style counselling. They were trying to get some graphics to appear correctly on the computer screen. lines were everywhere and everything was a mess. "So... do you know how MS Word works?"

Excuse me?

That had to be one of the most surreal moments I've had in a while. I didn't even know how to answer the question.
