One of the social workers was continually running up against the quota and continued to complain about the lack of space. I explained that non-work related items should not be stored on the server as a it was a misuse of resources and perhaps she should consider storing those items off to a floppy or CD. (This was a while ago after all). One day said social worker comes into my office with a familiar cardboard box in hand.
SW: Here. (Shoves box at me). I went out and bought an extra drive. Now you can give me more space.
Me: That won't work.
SW: Why not? It's a bigger drive and the guy at the store told me it would work fine.
Me: Yeah, the drive will work, in the right equipment. This won't work in our server.
SW: Why not?
Me: Because it's for a Mac computer.
SW: Right, that's what we use.
Me: No, that's what YOU use - at home.
