    Oh, the technology challenged....

    Just saw a post from a friend. She is brilliant, graduated Valedictorian from Brown, but couldn't find her way out of an elevator if the door was open. Went like this:

    Her: Like oh, that antenna thing on the headset is a mouthpiece...no wonder nobody could hear me speaking!

    Me: Why am I NOT surprised.?








    Her: For a year, folks, for a year....But lest you think I am out-of-step with technology because I fear it, or am incapable--haha, no. Ask me why the fax didn't work one day (I was using a telephone that was next to, but not part of, the machine to "dial out")...then, the mouse (I was pushing my flip phone around on my mouse pad).... I am done with the major fails for this decade!

    I work with a bunch of Phd's I regularly call them the dumbest group of smart people I know. I have conversations like,
    Phd: I am at a friends house for the weekend and I cant get email on my laptop
    Me: Are you on their wifi?
    Phd: They don't have wifi
    Me: are you wired into their internet router?
    Phd: They don't have internet, their house is in the woods upstate, i had to go into town to use my cell to email you
    Me:

    or

    Phd: The shredder isn't working can you look at it
    Me: Sure, (i get to the shredder) the bin is full
    Phd: Oh that makes sense, I shredded a giant stack of paper
    Me: Didn't you notice the light that came on showing that the bin is full right next to where you feed the paper in?
    Phd: No
    Me: It's okay I know you only have a Phd

      The first one is so stupid as to make a case that his Phd came out of a box of cracker jacks.
      The second one , just plain stupid

          Tell me about it. These are real conversations I have had with people, the first one was an older woman and is definitely the worst one I have had which is why I remember it. I hear things like theveryone second one all the time.

            I'm not tech savvy, but when I worked at the bank I had a lady that was pissed off because her computer saved her username and password. She thought the bank was storing it. I spent a good part of an hour explaining it was a browser setting etc. I don't mind to be honest, but when you've got an attitude...

              Educated and smart are two completely different things. Only the educated think they are the same.
