Key Trouble

Last Friday, in a panic, I called my friend Fred from the office.

"Fred! You've gotta help me! My keys aren't working!!"

"Ok, ok. Calm down. What can I do to help?"

"Well, I'm working on this huge project for my boss, and this morning when I got here, I tried to use my keys to access my files, but they didn't work!"

Fred thought for a moment.

"Are you sure that it's the right set of keys?"

"Yes, I'm sure these are the right keys!" I moaned. "They've always worked before!"

Fred paused for a moment to think again.

"You usually hide your keys in your desk when you leave the office as an extra security precaution, right?"

"Yes, that's right, I do" I replied.

"Uh huh. And did you plug the keys in this morning?"

"Oh" I said sheepishly as I plugged my keyboard into the correct port on the computer. "Heh heh. Now my keys are working."

You know, computer technicians come in handy sometimes.
