So this happened:
SOLIPSIST'S LACKEY (a different one): Can you come help someone in the computer lab?
SOLIPSIST: Doubtful. What's wrong?
SL: This woman can't get her floppy disk out of the computer.
S: Wow. Old school!
S: Well, I can take a look, but if the disk is stuck in the machine, I don't know that I'll be able to get it out.
(We go into the computer lab. SL points out the computer. I go over. The student, a middle-aged woman is standing next to it, looking distraught.)
S (to student): Your disk is stuck?
(I look at the computer and see the eject button is already pushed in.)
S: Oy. I think this is going to be a problem. (I push the button, just in case. No disk pops out.) Yeah, I don't know what to do about this. We're probably going to need a techie to come in and crack the tower open.
SL: Yeah, I even tried ejecting it through the desktop. . . .
S: I don't think that would work with a floppy disk, anyway.
STUDENT: Oh no!
SL: Right, but it's weird because the computer isn't even reading the disk.
S: Is it not formatted?
STUDENT: All my work's on the disk.
S: You don't have it backed up somewhere?
(I kneel down to look more closely at the disk drive: Maybe there's something obvious that's keeping the disk from popping out. I look into the drive itself.)
S: God. . . .I can't even see the disk. . .
STUDENT: (Handing me a floppy disk.) Here.
S: I don't need another disk. . . . I'm trying to get your disk out.
STUDENT: No, this IS my disk.
S: Um. . . .I don't-- THIS is the disk that you can't get out of the computer?
S: OUT. OF. The computer?
SL (to student): SERIOUSLY?!?
S: Can I see that disk?
S: So you want this OUT OF the computer?
S: OK. (Handing disk back.) Here you go.
And yet, if I'm sarcastic, I'M the jerk!
