Okay, this definitely would drain some of the tension and poignance out of this episode... but it also makes 16 times more sense, and it's just artful enough to be both practical and comic. Good work, Carl. And I love Greg's "okay crazy lady" reaction to Pam... the DM crew must deal with that a fair bit when they're exposed to the outside world!

It was a simple as that all along, huh.
Fun piece. Left me satisfied and smiling.
Looking forward to more of the Tales from tech Support now on my bookshelf. Hoping there's one referring to Pam's Celebrity Sex Tape fetish.
Well, it can be that simple for sure!
Im glad you enjoyed this!
Ill see what comes to me, I do work in IT so it's not as though I have a shortage of experiences to draw from for stories like this. I can't promise anything but I do hope I'll find a situation I feel like adapting in the future!
Thanks for your kind words!

Cute! I love these little slice of office life moments. I have somehow missed the Tales from Tech Support series, so I'm going to have to catch up! But I loved this and definitely wouldn't say no to more!
Author's Response: Thanks, glad to hear you liked it!

Good old Carl. Very Occam’s razor of him. This was a fun additional scene to that episode. I love the final line, no one can walk that delicate receptionist/office administrator line quite like Pam.
Author's Response: Carl is of course a caricature of me, and I like to live by the motto "Simple solutions for simple problems," so yes, he is. I'm glad you liked that last line, I was hoping it would land!

Ah very relatable in the IT world. I love Pam's way of showing how her life has changed by saying, "it's Halpert now". Just a very real life moment, this was. I enjoyed it!
Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'll be honest I wasn't trying to be deep with Pam's line, I just saw it as purely clerical, so I'm glad you got something more out of it.
Thanks for reviewing!

You'd think the whole, "turn it off and then turn it back on again," thing would be a little more intuitive at this point right? Still it's an elegant if simple solution. Nice to have another quick look into this world.
Simple solutions for simple problems is the motto I live by. It's going to send an email to Robert? Can't send email if it's dead. From a technical standpoint on this episode I did ask myself why they didn't just turn it off, but I guess for plot's sake some things have to be overlooked.
Glad you liked the look, just don't lean over the pit too far or you fall in!
