Anyone who has every helped another with the computer will appreciate this advice from Tech Support. That’s one job you couldn’t pay me enough to have.
But I have helped my share of coworkers with the computer and could relate to many of these tidbits. Now that I telecommute, it’s always very interesting when they email me for help. I try, but we never know what will come of my attempt to “help.”
My personal favorites were:
- If possible ask to speak to the youngest person in the room.
- Sooner or later you’ll meet a person who types out the word “backslash.”
