- Do you have family pictures that you've set as your computer background or screen saver?
- Do you have these pictures on a laptop in addition to or instead of a desktop?
- Do you travel for work?
- Do you use your laptop for business purposes?
If your "family" pictures include a picture of your significant other dressed in lingerie and posing suggestively on a bed, please please please take any and all necessary precautions to ensure that when you go to give a presentation on affordable housing at a church and you take a break from fiddling with the laptop/overhead hookup and said break is so long that your computer defaults to screen saver mode, that the screen saver image now being projected onto the giant jumbotron the church has set up specifically for your presentation is not, I repeat, NOT the do-it-yourself photo you took of your significant other posing suggestively on the bed in tight red lingerie. This will result in extreme embarrassment for you, and your significant other should they happen to be in the room, not to mention the dozens of people who innocently happen to be within eyesight of the jumbotron. And if, for whatever reason, you choose not to heed my warning, then please, if you are going to leave your computer unattended, at least monitor the jumbotron so that if your computer does go into screen saver mode and does project your Victoria's Secret photos, you will notice it sooner rather than later and be able to deal with it in a timely manner. Please do not get so engrossed in the buffet table that you are the only person in the room not aware of what is going on, forcing the rest of us to have to figure out a way to tactfully inform you that the entire room now knows your taste in lingerie. And women.
I'm still trying to shake that image out of my head a week later.
