WTF is the point in buying a computer when you CAN'T READ!?!
    #4418583 - 07/18/05 12:49 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I don't know what this guy's idea was...

Why would you buy a computer if you can't even be bothered to learn how to read??

And do you have any idea how fucking hard it is to troubleshoot a computer for someone who can't read anything on the screen?

"What does the error message say?"

"I don't know, I can't read it."

"What do you mean? Is the screen on?"

"Yes."

"Is there something covering up the error message?"

"No."

"Well what does it say, then?"

"I don't know, I can't read."

Please, someone shoot me.

Yeah, welcome to Supporting americans Tren.

I have a guy like that right now on the phone, except he likes to skip ahead steps when I'm telling him what to do.

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

On a slightly related tech support note, years ago when I was in HS I worked at staples, and this old lady came in and asked me about fax machines:

"Do I have to make a copy of the page before I fax it?"
"Why would you have to do that?"
"Because I'm sending my copy to the other person."

!

Afterwords, I thought that perhaps I should have sent over my friends posing as a "fax line installation crew" to install some tubes and what not on the side of her house.

LOL!!

Woman: "Yes my laptop came back from repair with a part missing...I don't know which part it is though."

Me: "I'm sorry ma'am, you've reached the wrong department...I'm going to have to transfer you to the laptop department."

Woman: "Oh no...are you going to transfer to someone else?"

Me: "Yes, ma'am, someone in the laptop department."

Woman: "Can you make sure you get me to a man, and not a woman?"

Me: "Ummm...."

Woman: "Men know more about computers than we women will ever know."

Me: "Let me transfer you..."


I almost pissed myself laughing. This WAS a lady talking!!!! :lol:

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Many of them are recorded "for quality purposes", but not anywhere that I can get my hands on the recordings.
