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.
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.
