Man Injured At Microsoft Cleaning Windows

A window cleaner has been rushed to hospital in Redmond, Washington, after being injured while cleaning windows at the Microsoft campus. A hospital spokesman said the cleaner was fortunate in that he fell on a soft area rather than the hard drive and he did have his back up at the time, so the impact was not as great as it might have been.

We understand he was up on a desk top working on the design floors with the newer windows. These are the same floors that enabled intruders to gain access last week, forcing Microsoft to put up a temporary patch. As he attempted to apply water to the glass the windows kept freezing; a feature of the main control system. Apparently this was switched off and on to correct the fault but by then the cleaner had lost a lot of cleaning time and it was at this point that he fell over.

The latest hospital bulletin states that the cleaner has damaged a couple of his discs and has incurred some memory loss. However, they will monitor his progress and expect him to make a full recovery a bit at a time.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
