99 Haikus About Conference Room Cable Management

I

First call of the day:
“We need an HDMI
To VGA stat.”

II

Ticket items: 10.
Number of tickets dealing
With cable woes: 10.

III

“Can’t display Prezi?
No prob. Just call up IT.
That’s what they’re there for.”

IV

9:30AM.
“Sorry to trouble you but
My Mac won’t connect.”

V

I put the cable
In the HDMI port.
Why doesn’t it work?

VI

1 room, 10 laptops.
Will 12 cords and adapters
Be enough? Hope so.

VII

“Hmm, it seems I left
My adapter back at home.
Let’s call up IT.”

VIII

This conference room is
Populated with cables,
But not people. Sigh.

IX

HDMI? Check.
VGA? Check. USB?
Check. Thunderbolt? Woops.

X

“IT here. I have
That adapter you asked for.”
“Thanks. What took so long?”

XI

My laptop: MacAir.
My output: HDMI.
TV: VGA?

XII

That’s the third cable
To go missing this morning.
Thieves walk amongst us.

XIII

Mini DisplayPort.
Damn, this laptop only has
Mini DisplayPort.

XIV

Why did I get a
Master’s in CS when all
I do is lug cords?

XV

Like Sisyphus, I
Carry wires room to room for
All eternity.

XVI

A VGA cord
Stuck in a USB slot.
No wonder Trump won.

XVII

We went to the moon
And yet it takes 10 minutes
To share a screen. Hmmm.

XVIII

How far is it to
The nearest Best Buy? I need
5 cables by noon.

XIX

“Hi there, Jim from sales
Can’t connect to the TV.
Can you help him out?”

XX

Who put this cable
So close to the garbage bin?
Now it’s all sticky.

XXI

Why are these cables
Going out the window and
Across the train tracks?

XXII

“Call 911 now!
Troy tripped on a VGA
Cord and broke his neck!”

XXIII

“Hello, you’ve reached the
IT department. Waiting
Time: 8 to 12 weeks.”

XIV

Don’t seem to recall
VGA delivery
In job description.

XXV

“The train company
Called. They want the cables off
The tracks right away.”

XXVI

“We need to hire a
New project manager. Troy
Is in a coma.”

XXVII

How do I send my
Prezi to the TV screen?
Better call IT.

XXVIII

Greg normally deals
With the cable set up, but
He’s on vacation.

XXIX

Tonight’s top story:
A train derailment has caused
Mass casualties.

XXX

It’s now 2PM.
Where are the cords I asked for?
They’re two hours late.

XXXI

I found these cables
On Todd’s desk after he quit.
Ugh, why do they smell?

XXXII

Let’s see what I have
In this drawer. 12 VGA
Cords, 10 USB.

XXXIII

I used to believe
That wires were worth the hassle.
Now I’m not so sure.

XXXIV

If I had a dime
For every cable mishap
I’d be Scrooge McDuck.

XXXV

“I’d like to order
1 connectivity box.”
“500 dollars.”

XXXVI

“Sorry, that was a
Typo. I actually
Need 20 boxes.”

XXXVII

“In that case, the price
Will be 10,000 dollars.”
“Do you take credit?”

XXXVIII

“Debra, can you please
Come to my office right now?”
“What’s the problem, sir?”

XXXIX

“Did you spend 10 grand
On those connectivity
Boxes? …well, did you?”

XL

“Yes, how else are our
Users supposed to screen share?”
“Debra, you’re fired.”

XLI

Another issue
With wires in Conference Room C.
When will they learn? When?

XLII

Like Prometheus
Bound to a rock, so am I
Bound by these cables.

XLIII

“I asked for five cords
And yet I only see three.”
“Best Buy was sold out.”

XLIV

Yet another day
Wasted in the conference room
Fiddling with wires.

XLV

I wish they made an
HDMI cable that
Was 90 feet long.

XLVI

2017.
Who would have guessed that we would
Still be using cords?

XLVII

Is it possible
To share screens wirelessly?
Let me check Spiceworks.

XLVIII

Let’s also see what
The good folks on /SysAdmin
Recommend I do.

XLIX

Forrest Gump would say,
“Life is like a box of cords;
Tangled and messy.”

L

Click. Just connected
My laptop to the TV
Wirelessly. So easy.

LI

I know I promised
99 haikus, but I’m
Just gonna end now.
