as soon as i’m told to stay away from them – suddenly everyone needs me to be on one.
i’ve been on the phone most of the afternoon with the parentals trying to fix their computer. and because of the pinched nerve in my neck, i’ve even put on the headphone clip thing to talk. mainly this allows me to grab my hair in frustration and fist shake whilst talking. trying to get my dad to understand formatting a hard drive is extremely difficult to do over the phone. you’d think the phrase “wipe clean” would be self explanatory. i feel like an on-call IT person. really, ever since i moved here people keep coming to me for computer problems, at work especially. wtf? i don’t even know that much about computers.
but i do know this –
it is demanding to defeat those evil machines.
