I'm beat

Well atleast they didn't kick me out till today xD
I'll stay around tomorrow and than my internship comes to it's end..atleast for now..it's rather fun work I've done the last two days..wiring facings for a huge trailer/caravan thing (just the wiring they hooked up the sockets and light switches) demolishing old hard dives and taking apart old computers for parts.

Well they found me rather bewildered as they handed me a used security cam and told me " client says it's broken...is it? and why?" ...baaahhhh ...Like I know shit about electrical engeneering or whatever I was supposed to do with it..well I kinda managed to take it apart just to sit there staring at the circuit board not knowing what to do next..yeha there were three wires and one of them had to transmit a signal and somehow that piece of crap needed power to run....after a few minutes of pure cluelessness I recieved some help and they kinda worked me through the procedure of checking the camera.I definetly need more knowledge about the principles of electrical engeneering ..time to root out my old physics school books when I'm home again..Just can't stand to feel stupid.

Just tell them that the flux capacitor is broken.

Sounds like a good introduction.
Any chance of a full-time job there?

Put on the spot to do something confusing is an annoying situation.

As someone who's professional in being confused, I feel for ya.

I like how the word "stupid" can apply to the inability to do both the impossible and the impossibly easy.
