Idiocy in people
Working in retail will just do it for you. Once you meet “those” kind of people, you just don’t see the world the same way you used to.
In Canada, starting September 1st, old fashioned antenna signal will be replaced with a digital one. Meaning that people with dinosaur TVs will need to buy a converter -cause investing a newer TV is just innaceptable (heave sarcasm).
I have actually people asking me at least five times everyday how this bloody thing works and commenting on how unfair it is for companies to force in buying such a device. This one lady told me she had her TV for over 30 years and, after buying an LCD model last year, how her old set worked way, way better…Now, this, I think, is the most infuriating thing you can tell a nerd or electronics’ enthousiast like me. Since it was such an old model, her antenna was ”hidden” inside it, she wasnt sure how to set up a converter when, and if, she would buy one.
Ugh. When people expect you to give IT service on the phone, in a retail store, without even knowing what they’re talking about, and leaving no room for you to correct them or advise them,
you ask yourself: why are they even calling? Ah, dumb people.
