The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
What you should do is pretend to follow the directions, and tell them a weird screen came up and that you'd like to send them a screen shot by email. If they acquiesce, send them the latest/greatest email attachment you received from an obvious scam attempt email (don't forget to rename it to "screenshot.zip" or some such thing).

First they have to send someone down to the village to buy a stamp. That takes a while, as most sub post offices are friendly, chatty places and it can take an hour or so to get served - and another hour or two to get out afterwards. More if the kettle is on and there is tea brewing.
Then they have to find an envelope. That's difficult, as budget cuts mean they have to be fetched individually (and personally signed for to prevent theft) from the Stationary Cupboard, located in Central London.
Which means obtaining a travel permit, countersigned by the Post Master General. This entails submitting a Form 117/G(W) properly completed and approved by two Grade 7 or lower Civil Servants. Form 117/G(W) is available online from the government website[^] but onl;y on Tuesday and Thursday, unless there is a bribe in the offing.
It's not as simple as just "stuff it in the postbox" you know!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
What they mean is that they've put it in an envelope and dropped in the Outgoing Mail tray, which is only dealt with on Thursday mornings by someone who doesn't give a cr@p, and never empties it completely.
