I helped this old guy [he's dead now] buy a super fast computer at the time. I set it up for him at his house and showed him a few basics. A few days later he loudly complained that the mouse didn't work. Basic phone advice wouldn't work with this guy so I went clear across town to help. I asked him to show me the problem and he picks the freak'n mouse up off the mouse pad, placed the mouse ONTO the monitor's glass directly over the pointer and tried moving it vertically on the monitor's glass. He bitched that he couldn't see what he was pointing at and they should have thought of a better way. OH MY WORD! I kindly placed his hand and mouse back on the mouse pad and something miraculous happened when the mouse ball actually rolled.

That's almost like the guy in a night class I helped out with that couldn't figure out what do when he 'ran out of mouse pad'.
