There is no need to get into a terminalogy war. Tell me what is wrong. When someone says "My hard drive is broken", they are offering an opinion without
having a clue what is happening. If my car is broken, I don't tell the mechanic about the parts I think are broken. I describe what is happening. When
a person opines out of ignorance, they risk sending the repair person down the wrong path. Just describe the problem.

Let's see. I was coming in to work and all the roads were blocked off. I parked a few blocks away and walked into work. When I got to the building, a deputy almost
whacked me. He told me to get in the office and stay there. Some nutbag had killed a policeman a few yards from the office.
We even debated whether the office windows were bulletproof.
That same year, we were locked in again when some nutbag decided to shoot up a bunch of classrooms.

This was more difficult than working with the cougar who kept talking about meeting me in motels near her house. I passed.

The longer the title, the less important the job.

Working...
