Obviously Not a Geek

Written By Jhoni Saprol on Monday, July 25, 2011 | 12:54 AM




Have you read our older post about stupid PC costumer? For those who're familiar with the tech world, or even called themselves geek, those kind of honest mistakes seem to be impossible to happen. But hey, there are a lot of people out there that have "real life" and not depend on computer, internet, and social networks. Those are the kind of people that rarely touch a PC, or just once in a while, when they really need it.

These are another collection of true story about "stupid" PC user. Well, probably not all were true, but at least these are make sense:

Long Password

During a recent PASSWORD AUDIT by the bank, they found that Rick was using the following password:

MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofyLondon

When they asked me why Rick had such a long password, he replied:
''Are you frickn' stupid? I was told that my password had to be at least 8 characters long and include one capital!''


Overheard in a computer shop:
Customer: "I'd like a mouse mat, please."
Salesperson: "Certainly sir, we've got a large variety."
Customer: "But will they be compatible with my computer?"


A friend once received a fax with a note on the bottom to fax the document back to the sender when he was finished with it, because the sender needed to keep it.


Computer Problem

Ted had a computer problem yesterday, so he called Eric, the 11 year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come over.

Eric clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.
As he was walking away, Ted called after him, 'So, what was wrong?

He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'

Ted didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired,
'An, ID ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'

Eric grinned.... 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T errors before?
'No,' Ted replied.

‘Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it out.'

So Ted wrote down:

ID10T

Ted used to like Eric, the little b*stard.
