In college, when I was working my first consulting job, a professor
called with a problem with a slow computer. He had
tried everything he knew to fix the problem, to no avail. The computer
used to have good performance, but something had happened.
Upon arriving at his office, it didn’t take me long to spot
the problem. There it was: A big red Turbo button—useful in the
Off position for some gaming, which he wasn’t doing—was begging
me to press it. I did. Performance came back. We joked
about the $5 payment—5 cents for pushing the button and $4.95
for knowing which button to push.
