My company runs an distance-learning course which teaches people how to use Windows and programs from the MS Office suite.

Students are sent a workbook and have to download some practice files from our website for them to use, as they progress through the workbook.

Just had a phone call from one student who was complaining that she couldn't open the database files because she was getting a message that they were read-only.

My colleague: Whereabouts on your computer did you save the files?

Student: I didn't.

My colleague: Well you must have downloaded them and saved them somewhere for you to be able to try and open them.

Student: I haven't downloaded them.

My colleague: Did someone in our office email them to you instead?

Student: No. I don't know how they got there, but the files just appeared.

My colleague: Did someone else download them for you?

Student: Not to my knowledge.

My colleague: Files can't just appear on your computer.

Student: Well they did!

DOH!! This student is never going to pass this course!!
