The one on the loading dock was named "dock". Our secretary (pretty HOT secretary) called me over to her desk and said something was wrong with the shortcut. I double clicked and it opened fine. I closed it, told her it worked fine and was about to stand up. She said NO, there's something wrong with it and pointed at the name of the shortcut. I'm sure you know what the typo was. :eek:

DOH! :eek:

deck?

I thought you were gonna say you misspelled "anandtech" and had porn pop up in plain few of the camera. That would have been funny.

A friend at work typed in "hotmale.com" when he was trying to check his mail quickly a fwe days ago. The site is about what you would expect. :disgust:

here's a hint: why not turn this "uncomfortable situation" to your advantage. you now have a funny story to share between you and a hot secretary. it's even got a sexual innuendo built in! :)

What's so bad about a shortcut labeled Duck? Or did she think you insulted her by calling her Dork? ;)

At my old job, I was converting a magazine article to put on our website. The problem is that we didn't have a digital copy, so I had to scan in the article. I scanned it in, did a spell check, converted the article to HTML and posted it on our website. The next day I get called into the office, "public relations" turned into "pubic relations" during the conversion. I got laid off that same day, for other reasons, so they say.
