One day my mom needed some help because her new radio-alarm-clock had some stupid defect she could not explain: The display said ‘hEGI’ and I was a little puzzled at first but as the letters changed to ‘SEGI’ I turned the clock upside down and left the room in silence.

I work as tech support at a electronic retailer, in about a half hour period I had a lady get mad at me because she didn’t understand what I meant when I said “back of the iPad.” Another older lady was upset that her wireless router cut out a block away from her house and thought it should work everywhere.

I just about quit after that. Darmick McGeek
