Racing, with the Computer Guy

You want the change now?
And everything must keep running?
Yes, it’s easy to do at home.

Let me explain the complexity, here:
Does your home support a million users?
Do you lose money when you reboot?

Imagine you’re in a race car,
Going 200 miles per hour,
and want me to change a spark plug.

If you don’t want it to explode,
And if I’m not allowed to pull over,
Give me some time to plan a little.

Having worked on computers for a long time, I’ve seen many frustrated users who don’t understand why fixing their work computer might take a little longer than what they do at home. They demand for you to work fast, cheaply and do a good job (I contend that you only get to pick two).So, this poem is for the frustrated computer users out there.
