People Who Can’t Read

Posted in People at 2:40 pm by bsdman

You know what grinds my gears? It’s people that can’t read.

Actually I should rephrase that – it’s people that refuse to read.

I’m a fairly technical person. I run a small IT help-desk site. I work for a company doing IT support. I am IT support for my friends and family. I try to make things as easy as possible for people – almost all of the directions are clearly laid out with pictures and small words. Unfortunately, too many people refuse to read and cause me to want to rip out my hair.

I sent an email to one of my coworkers telling him to install a program so we can work together on a shared server screen. The next day, plus 5 hours, I ask him if he’s installed it yet. Guess what? A BIG FUCKING NO. LOL. Bitch.

I like to skim over material as much as the next person, but if I have steps 1 through 3 written down for you to accomplish, and you only do step 1 and 3… guess what? You’re now a “fucktard.”

And that’s what grinds my gears.

BP

You know what grinds my gears? It’s BP.

I'm surprised that they even acknowledged there was an issue. I heard everything from "oh it's only a few barrels a day" to "oh my God our children will never know what Gulf Of Mexico shrimp tastes like!" and everything between.

Then the people that wanted to fix it:

Let's try to clamp it using the clamps that weren't designed for this
Let's just wait it out
Let's put chemicals in the water to "eat" the oil
Let's put garbage in the hole
Let's put golf balls in the hole
Let's employ the fishermen who's lives we have ruined to help clean the top of the ocean
Let's cut the pipe and fit a cover on it and hope when we close the vents it doesn't push out
Let's just wait until two other wells are built to relieve the pressure

Argh.

And that's what grinds my gears.
