So, 2 weeks ago now we learned that our home PC had a virus on it. We updated our antivirus software and it didn't clean it out. So, Drew took it the Computer guys and gals at the University and they cleaned all the viruses out, but couldn't get the speed back. They told him it was a Trojan Horse Virus and that it may have hurt the hard drive. Sooooo...we took it home and tried to wipe the computer clean (which took hours and we were unsuccessful) because we thought we could reuse that computer...just clean it and start over.

Anyway, a coworker of mine was telling her husband about our computer situation and he wasn't really listening to her. She was talking and he kept saying "uh huh....uh huh..." (you know when someone's not really listening, right? Then the following exchange ensued:

Coworker: So they got a trojan horse virus on the computer and are trying to clean it and reuse.
Husband: Hey, you better tell them that they can't reuse those Trojans.
Coworker: What?
Husband: You can't clean and reuse those Trojans...they break and won't keep a virus out!
Coworker: What are you talking about?
Husband: What are you talking about?
Coworker: You weren't REALLY listening to me, were you?

Then she explained AGAIN what she had said and he asked her "Are you going to tell Frances about this?" YUP and I'm sharing it here for you and may you laugh as hard as we did.

PS...We were FINALLY able to find someone who completely fixed our computer to full working order and that is a true blessing!
