“Tech Trouble” by Richard F. Yates

Daughter was trying to figure out a program on her laptop for a computer class. I try to help. After spending two hours reading help message boards, downloading “fix it” software, and looking up every possible setting that might be wrong….(sigh)….I finally realize that we hadn’t clicked a little button that opened a drop-down menu and gave us what she needed. It was so “intuitive” (for everyone else) it wasn’t covered in any help message.

Time for me to retire to the woods and give up the “electric” life….
