Are you sure you've got a floppy disk stuck in the drive? Or is it 100 lodged in the chassis?

Yes, with no home PC ownership in those days, computer literacy would be nonexistent until you got shoved into a job that required it. But I do wonder that the user in question knew enough such that they had watched colleagues use floppy disks, saw they were slow, but didn't pay enough attention to put the media into the correct slot in their own PC.
