Some people just can't put clues together...

One of my "special needs children" asked for help with her phone today. It hadn't been working "since that man played with it last week". Hmmm... I went to have a look.

I checked the usual suspects: the phone was working, it was set to use the headset rather than the handset, and the headset was connected to the phone. I picked up the headset and it didn't turn on.

Me: Hmmmm... looks like your headset is flat.

Special needs child: Yes, it hasn't been working since that man was in here last week.

Me: Which man? *check headset base* Well, there's your problem - it's not plugged in. *crawls under desk*

SNC: The man who was checking things.

Me: Um... where's the power brick for the headset?

SNC: I don't know.

Me: Weird... okay, that guy was checking electrical items for safety, and all this stuff down here is tagged, but where's the power for your headset?

SNC: I don't know.

Me: *crawls back out* Do you have any idea where the black power brick is?

SNC: No idea.

Me: *spying a little bundle on the other end of her desk* What's that?

SNC: Oh, I don't know. I found it on my desk the other day.

Sure enough, it was the power brick, with a big red "failed electronic safety testing" sticker on it.

SNC: What is it?

Me: It's the power brick I was looking for.

SNC: Oh is it? Why isn't it plugged in.

Me: *speechless - looking from her innocent face to the big red sticker and back again*

SNC: It was just sitting on my desk.

Me: Oooookay... See this "failed" sticker? The guy who was in here last week was doing safety testing, and this failed.

SNC: *blank look*

Me: I'll go get you a new one.
