Can someone tell me why, when you tell users to do things like:
- open windows Explorer
- in the screen the appears, navigate to folder "x"
- Run Word, click on "Open" and navigate to your document.

and then they act like deer in headlights, they almost always say "well I'm not a techie/compter expert, etc..." in a sarcastic tone??

When the mechanic tells them to check their oil in their car, do they say "well I'm not a mechanic/car expert"?

Sheesh. Is it too much to expect someone who uses a computer/car/appliance on a regular basis, to actually know something about what they're using?

Thank you for your time. We now return you to your regularly scheduled hell.....
