HELP!!!! I JUST SPILLED COFFEE ON MY KEYBOARD...seth1

and I don't know what to do!!! I'm on my co-worker's computer right now, she doesn't get in for another 2 hours. Should I immediately tell my supervisor and hope she will be lenient with me? Should I swap out my keboard with my co-worker's and let her deal with the consequences? Should I fake food poisoning, leave the office, come back tomorrow and then blame a phantom sabateur?

WHAT SHOULD I DO!!!???

As a network administrator, I would offer the following alternative suggestions :-)

1. Swap your keyboard with a fellow employee. Make sure the employee is a Mormon.

2. Dry you keyboard in a microwave oven. Get another employee with a pacemaker to monitor the operation.

3. Spill foamed milk on your hard drive and make a latte.

Seriously, you CAN seriously damage your computer by using a wet keyboard. If there are no spare keyboards lying around, you can just dry it out in the sun, or you can try cleaning it with Qtips and alcohol, but it's a pain. Keyboards can be cleaned, but with prices so low it is rarely worth the trouble...
