My father just talked to me for 45 minutes about how computer dumb this guy he left in at work is.
My dad took 10 days off.
KNOWING that the only person there to take over for him is this braindead guy named Shearn who transferred here as a boat operator a couple years ago (and he actually smashed a nosecone on a submerged, in dock nuke sub.) and was worthless at that too.
He left him trying to do time sheets, using a computer (which he doesn't understand in the least) and getting aaaaaaaaaall kind of annoyed at him when he doesn't do it right or can't figure out how to double click or when it all locked up on him and he had to walk Shearn back through rebooting and logging back in.
"I got it all set up, on desktop... no wait.. not on desktop, in the time sheets icon.."
That's how he says things.
"I was using that Local Area Network and sending e-mail to HRO to ask WHYYYY they were printing off their things on PWC012 instead of PWC01 that's in their office and I let them know that I would TELL THEM how to select a printer, if they really needed to be taught"

*I* taught him how to choose a printer 2 weeks ago.

Telling shearn to handle the time sheets on his own is like telling my dad to ftp a crack from a secure server and then to up it to a friend.
It would be gibberish, he'd get frustrated, and he would feel like I was just being mean in telling him how he's wrong.
Same bullshit with Shearn.

My father may know how to use a mouse but his knowledge doesn't lie far beyond that, and watching him play mister superior to this simple man (and that man IS simple) makes me want to spin his head on his neck.

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
