IT manager pilot fish has a user in the plant who just doesn't trust computers or the IT department -- or management, for that matter.

"She was convinced we were monitoring her every move," says fish. "I tried many times to reassure her that IT had neither the time nor the interest to monitor 350 employees' every move.

"Her steadfastness became solidified when we were asked to give her a screen capture tool and the icon was a set of binoculars down by the computer clock.

"After the install, she informed me that she knew for sure we were watching her now, as those binoculars were looking up at her and recording not only live pictures of her but also her every move!"
