    Support systems where people just read off a checklist of questions without even listening to what I am saying is soooo annoying.

    Me: Windows won't load. This is a brand new pc and once the BIOS is done running it course and the little logo and progress bar appears the resolution goes "out of range" I can't even get to the setup page.

    Support: So please let me ask you. Are you on another computer or the affected one right now? We will hopefully figure this out for you before this chat is over.

    btw I was in one of those online chat support systems not on the phone- so isn't it pretty obvious I am NOT on the affected computer?

    the thing to remember is that the people that they hire more often then not have ZERO experience with computers. Each help person has a book with a flow chart for problems. They have to go through the flow chart, because if they dont they could miss a step it could result in a bigger issue.

    Exactly. If you don't know what a computer is...don't be a technical support person.

    And to make today even better- F*******K cars. My starter just went. Every time I went to start it it would pop the starter fuse. So now that will be $360 I don't have to even drive again...great ****ing monday.

    if I used multiple U's in **** it won't censor it...so I self censored

    So screw repair shops for quoting me $300 for a part and at least an hour of labor. I found the same part new right down the street for half that price and I am calling a junk yard tomorrow as someone I know got theirs for $40. Also going to try to do it myseff now. It's only a starter...

    Wannabe that's how repair shops need to operate to cover expenses.

    My last mechanic (before he retired) spelled it out for me.
    He even tells me I can go down the street and pick it up for X amount but If I want it delivered the part costs X amount more. It is much like the difference in pricing for delivery and carryout.

    Ok... if you have some artistic talent, congrats. I will never knock it. Hope that you hone it, master your art, find your "inner voice".

    However, to be a pretentious artist... shove some random, artsy **** down my throat in the name of "art"... I might just kick your ass. Or worse... explain to you how bad your art, or idea of art truly is. Or both. I hate people that sit there and scoff and use sheer snobbery to explain a simple, minor thing like it's the end of the world if it's misunderstood because they've decided to put a cause and reason behind a single ****ing dot on a canvas.

    No. That's a lazy painter my dear. GTFOH

    When you're trying to show me something on the computer DON'T ****ING actually touch the screen! Especially if your pointer if a ****ing pen. Yeah when you hit the screen and all the colors go wacky...that's because you're not supposed to ****ing touch an lcd screen.

    Also I would like to add how stupid the above post is....

    I once worked with a guy who used to eat pizza for lunch and then come over and "point" out things to me on my monitor...drove me CRAZY!!! Nothing like trying to see through greasy, smeared fingerprints...

    She just came back in and with the back of her pen literally just made a huge circle around what she was trying to show me. I could hear it scraping!

    Luckily she's the owners wife/my boss. She can buy a new one when she writes all over it when one day she does it with a sharpie and forgets the cap...

    Let a friend borrow my ipod touch last night to go for a bike ride and decided it needed a crack all the way from the top left corner to the right of the bottom button. The cheapest replacement screen I found is $70 and read that it's really difficult to change the screen yourself.

    Not exactly someone in the position to buy me a new one either....just ****ing great.
