Once upon a true life story…
It was 9:30 am, court was to sit by 10am and there were court processes to be filed which were to be used that morning.
9:40am final comments were sent in; of course laptop and printer were not in sight. Gritting my teeth in grim determination, and thanks to internet on mobile phones, the processes were forwarded to a colleague at the office to format and finalise.
9:50 am, thanks to a charming smile, one of the court registry staff agrees to assist with his computer system and printer. But then, no bluetooth on the computer system to use to transfer the file. We try to send it to his email and of course, network chose that moment to disappoint.
Teeth still gritted, we decide to send it to his laptop which thankfully had bluetooth. Thanks to a love for technology, the file was transferred via blackberry to the laptop.
The laptop was plugged to the printer but no show! It wasn’t a plug and play printer and the the software wasn’t installed on the laptop.
Refusing to be discouraged, I reached in my purse and brought out my flash drive (yea, I like to roll like that!) and we do another transfer into a computer that was compatible with the printer and voila the document chugs out.
9:59 am, we rushed to file and put the processes into the court file….
10:03 am, the registrar yelled, ‘Court…’ and the rest they say is history.
My conclusion, where there is a will, there is often a way.
