Talking with the Tech Guy

At the college where I work, one of the coputer help desk guys was one of my customers at the video store I used to work at. I frequently stop to see what’s going on with him.

Today, we got to talking about the upgrade to Microsoft Word 2007. I said, “I keep having to show coworkers how to do things with it, like I’m the expert or something. I only know how to use it because when students ask me how to do something, I play with the computer and figure it out. Trail and error, you know.”

He related. “I’m not saying anyone is stupid,” he said. “I know it’s confusing. I know some people are computer illiterate; I have a grandma too. But I mean, come on!”

The grandma comment struck me as funny. That’s all.

  1. Word 2007? Evil on a disc. If you are semi-literate with this bloated application I salute you, sir.

  2. Word 2007, 2007 new ways to fuck up your consumer base.
