I'm a mechanic all I know how to do with a computer is look up service manuals and computer codes!
I always ask my kids for computer help. They know what they're doing, I don't. Once my boss fixed something on my laptop for me. LOL i just asked him my question and he said, "Do you have your laptop here with you?" I told him I did. He said, "Bring it into my office, I'll fix it for you." i thought that was pretty nice. That being said, he doesn't fix things with large hammers but he can tear apart and put together the most complex analyzer in our lab. He knows what he's doing for sure.

some of us are born to large tools and some of us are born to use smaller tools.

i am lucky. i can usually work with either large or small tools.

My boss is so awesome he once asked me if I had pictures of my guns on my laptop and he wanted to see them. He is a gun enthusiast, too. We get along great.

I can understand that. Personally, the image I have is that of the ass hole. I'm a helpful ass hole, but complain about my help, and I'm just an ass hole. No one is surprised when I do it. They're not surprised when I offer help in the first place, but they're not surprised when I tell someone to go to hell for bitching about that help either.

The Woodward Dream Cruise was last week, here's my once a year rant. Hey, all you asshats cluttering up Woodward in your daily drivers. Nobody came out to see your F-250, Subaru Forester or Dodge minivan. Get out of the blankity-blank way! Rant over.

That's true Cin. The reason I singled out Woodward is because it's the flagship event, known around the country and parts of the world. You'd think these jugheads could back off one day a year. Instead it gets worse.

Default Junk Phone Calls

Junk phone calls - even though I'm on the "No Call" list... I keep a very loud whistle by the phone now.

Yes, I have used it...
