Where to Start

I don’t think I have the mental or emotional fortitude to deal with this.

EMAIL FROM CO-WORKER: I think I’m gonna have to have you walk me through the download from my computer to my lab top. I put the cord into the lab top but nothing happened. Call me after work on my cell phone at (###) ###-#### when you get a chance. 

I hardly know where to start. The fact that she wants me to call her at home after work to help with her personal computer, the fact that I’m pretty sure she’s trying to transfer programs and files from one computer to the other by connecting them with an ethernet cord, or THE FACT SHE DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO SPELL “LAPTOP”!!!

I cringe EVERY time someone calls it a “labtop.” – Rob
