I was at a client last week providing some computer graphics training. One of the art directors needed some assistance, as she was having some trouble with the project she was working on. It just happens to be that this art director is Jewish (I believe she's a BT). In any regard, she shows me the problem that she's having on the computer screen and after thinking about it for a moment, I asked her to try a certain function. She did, and the problem went away.
The look on this woman's face was pure joy. She couldn't believe that I had "figured it out". Just for the record, the problem she was having wasn't one that I had seen before, but intuition just seemed to lead me to the solution.
The art director, however, was just in total shock, as she couldn't figure out how in the world I had made the connection between her problem and the ultimate solution (admittedly, the two things seemingly had nothing in common at all). She demanded that I tell her how I figured it out. Unfortunately, I didn't have an answer for her. I just said it kinda clicked in my head and went with a hunch. She didn't believe that. In any regard, I left her desk to continue my rounds at the company.
The next day, I passed by her desk and she jumped up and said the following:
"I still can't get over how in the world you figured that problem out yesterday. I discussed it with my husband last night and we both decided that it MUST be the Torah. It must be! You learn Torah and only someone who has that kind of mind could possibly come up with that specific solution to the problem."
Since then, it has become a phrase used often at the company. Even the non-Jewish employees now want me to "use the Torah" when I help them with their computer problems.
