Co-Workers, Schmo-Workers

A few weeks ago I was having some computer trouble at work. I was under a deadline on a project for one of the owners, and to say I was stressed out would be an understatement. I called in our IT Manager, who is also a good friend, and asked him a barrage of questions that he apparently did not know how to answer. He informed me that my question was not in his job description (I was having issues with Excel).  I informed him that job descriptions are very broad where we work, and I needed some answers. So he sent me this:

I don't think I have to tell you how that went over. Did you see that "Was that so hard?" come up at the bottom??? 
A) I know how to create forms in Excel. 
B) Something was not working as it should. 
C) If it was that easy, he would have known the answer. 

I had never seen Let Me Google That For You, but I must say it is the ultimate smart-aleck tool.  Takes some cojones to actually send the link to someone though. My reply to him? "You see the weird thing about that is that we pay YOU to answer those questions. :)" He replied with something equally snippy about how he's paid to make sure I can open Excel, and I just decided to let it go at that point. Later that day (of course), I thought of the perfect retort. 

This is what I should have sent him:  Watch your step IT guy.
