So THAT'S who stole it!

Teacher at this high school hits the warpath after she discovers that someone has walked off with the charger for her wireless mouse, reports a tech support pilot fish on the scene.

"She is all fired up because someone has stolen the charger," fish says. "There's no way she can carry on with the day-to-day instruction for her classes. There's just no way to operate the mouse because it's dead. And there's no way to charge the mouse, because there is no charger.

"Problem is, all the wireless mice were swapped out over a year ago for a different model. The new ones use batteries instead of a charging cradle.

"While replacing the batteries in her mouse, I'm quietly wondering why it has taken her over a year to report this 'theft.'"
