I find it quite annoying when someone bosses other people around. It’s just so annoying to listen to people who whine about things that they pretend to be knowing when they really don’t, hence they force it on the ones that know and they squeeze it out just to get what they want. It’s just so stressful to sit there and, as much as you’d like to avoid it you just can’t help but hear the whole conversation. For instance, I was sitting in this internet cafe next to the technician (or the internet cafe guy who assists you on your disputes with their computers…) and then suddenly a woman approaches him about her SmartBro USB being corrupted and all. As the guy tries to troubleshoot the thing and tells her what to do and which to click, he suddenly configures that they must remove a certain virus from the USB and afterwards they’ll need to reboot the whole thing.. (sorry, I’m not really much of an evesdropper..). By the minute she hears the word “reboot” which might’ve been way over her mind, she raises her voice and asks the poor guy what else to do? “Should I buy a new USB?”, “Should I contact SmartBro and demand for a refund??”, “Should I buy a CD?”, “By reboot, does that mean..????”
The guy comforts her whiney ass, of course. He tells her that all they should do is to save the files to another folder (the back-up folder) and then do the rebooting. Since his explanation seemed to long for her bonker brain, she panicked even more. “Why? What else do I have to do??”, “Is it gonna be expensive?”, “A folder? I don’t need a folder! I need my USB to be usable again!” yadda, yadda, yadda……
Finally, the conclusion to this story is that the girl has finally been resucitated (kidding…), I mean, she realizes that there’s no need to spend anything, and that all they need to do is to transfer her files to another folder.
And the rest is history. Sigh. What a diva.
