You know how it is.
You need to get some files off your thumb drive so you go to plug it into your PC and … nope … it ain’t going in.
So you flip it around and fiddle and fumble to find the port again and … nope … it still ain’t going in.
So you flip it around again and … what the … somehow it still refuses to slot in as it surely should.
The final stage of the process usually involves a thorough visual inspection of the USB drive before craning your neck to a potentially vertebrae-shattering position in a bid to ensure the perfectly aligned insertion of stick into slot.
Or getting up out of your seat to approach the problem from another angle entirely, and with all the steady-handedness of a crack surgeon carrying out a life-saving operation.
