Stick I.T. – Disk 2

As an I.T. guy it’s sometimes incredible to me how out of their element some folks can be when it comes to computers, particularly in situations where the computer pops up a message and actually tells you exactly what it needs.

 There are also times when you’ll say something like “OK, now there should be an “OK” button, do you see it?” and they’ll say “Yes, what should I do, click it?”… There have been times when I tried to inject a little of my typical smartassery, only to have it go over their heads as well, which really rankles.

  1. I can only imagine your frustrations at times. I am certainly no I.T. person, but I can get around pretty well on a computer.I was explaining to a friend a ways back about how to download a torrent. She said, “She got it.”Thirty minutes later she texted me and asked, “Do you know what my password is?”I about fainted from laughter.By the way, as an I.T. person, do you find it necessary to keep a prescription for Valium? lol

  2. Delores – Truth be told, I understand the ready behind asking, and I can appreciate not wanting to do something incorrect. I’d rather people asked than simply went clicking around. The human in me understands. The sarcastic ass in me sees an opportunity for a snyde comment.:)Jeremy – I’ve always said that if I were ever to develop a “habit” it would be something like that. 😀

  3. I’ve heard that oh-too-many times as well. My experience began back in the days of DOS:”It says ‘Press Any Key To Continue.'””OK…””Should I?””…Yes.””Um, which key should I press?””…”

  4. Me: OK, I need you to Right-Click MyComputer.Them: *Silence*Me: Hello?Them: *Silence*Me: Are you still there?…Them: Ummmm . . . How can I Right-Click “YOUR Computer”?Me: *HeadDesk*

  5. Funny toon. I’ve been there Matt. In my job I’ve had to explain to people how to use the right mouse button. It’s easy to get frustrated. Thank goodness I never tried using sarcasm.
