USING A COMPUTER
What's the deal with computers? Why are they so damn frustrating? If you've ever encountered an unsolvable problem with your hardware or software (and who hasn't?) or if you've ever tried to coach a family member through a computer problem over the phone (which is like flying a passenger jet through a snowstorm from the control tower) you might appreciate a little comic relief. Laughter is key. Remember that as the tears stream down your face and you hurl heavy objects at the wall. Remember that as you scan your hard drive for the umpteenth time, and run up your long distance phone bill grilling the one guy in the family who is slightly computer savvy, and who turns out not to be so helpful after all. Before your blood pressure skyrockets, stop a moment. Breathe. Pop a chill pill. Enjoy this computer comedy.
