1) Someone asking if our shop is a library
2) BT phone line - no dial tone
3) BT internet - no connection
4) Till system crashes or freezes
5) Stock system crashes or freezes
Notice how 4 out of 5 of the above are IT-related or ICT-related?
See this despondent bookseller on the left? She has lost the will to live. Why has she lost the will to live? The BT phone line died, the internet died in sympathy, and one of our counters was not in operation because the till system and the stock system also threw themselves off a cliff. Now you know why this bookseller sees no reason to go on living. And this lasted for two whole, very loooong days....
PS. Thank you Cui for catching this candid moment and Alexandra for letting me post this - LOL!
