"Millions need to LEARN TO USE THE FARKING INTERNET OR GET THE FARK OFF"

I believe this quote comes from the drunken butter-shots lady's rant.

Sadly for her "using the internet" seems to be using google to turn up evidence that confirms what you wish were true.

My wife used to have Bing as her default search engine even though she liked Google more. She would search for Google with Bing and refused to just let me change her default.

mccallcl: The internet? I find myself explaining how time works to people! I've sat in a meeting and had to explain that although we built the auditing feature they wanted, it will only start auditing now, and cannot have started auditing since before we conceived it.

I have had to explain the difference between the TO: and CC: fields and what they each indicate.

I have had to explain very, very basic concepts about how work is assigned, how to let someone know you're finished with something, or why planning is important. All to grown adults who have graduated college, who are at work getting paid. I wish I remembered all the "duh!" moments I've had throughout my career, but I think I've blocked them out to protect my sanity.

People are stupid.


My favorite help desk ticket of all time was this one lady who found a "showstopping" bug in our application: it wouldn't allow her to select February 30th as a date.

"But it lets me do it for every other month!"

It got out of control when she actually convinced upper management that I was stonewalling her.

I told them to take it up with the Pope and closed the ticket.

D1551D3N7: abhorrent1: Roto-Rot: It takes time to learn. On my first day at University in 1990 I asked a guy (who kind of looked like Robert Smith from the Cure) what DOS was, and he gave me a look of horror mixed with pity.

Ask any teenager today what DOS is and they'll look at you like you have two heads. The circle is complete.

I'm an teenager and I know what DOS is. I don't think I represent the average though.


aw hell, im in my late twenties and i cant remember what it is without googling it.... im sure i used to know it at some point

question, since it is a DISC operating system, isnt it an antiquated term with the hard drives and the chips and the doohickies and what not?

/wow, i never really considered how ignorant i was about how computers work until now

abhorrent1: The Angry Hand of God: abhorrent1: The Angry Hand of God: I don't think 90% of people know the difference between entering a URL and searching for something...

My wife will put "Amazon.com" in google instead of just typing it the address bar. Makes my farking head explode.

/and my mother double clicks links.
/goddamnitsomuch!

My ex used to do this. The first 100 times I tried correcting her. After that I gave up.

I've tried and given up as well.

Me: why don't you just type it in the address bar?
Her: this is just easier
Me: facepalm


So, you guys are ____ing my mom?

Do they ask questions in threads rather than googling it themselves?

I guess I should go google that.
