Today I took delivery of Mrs H's new mobile phone. It is a samsung smartphone.
It is causing me a headache.
A more correct statement would be that Mrs H is giving me a headache.
All night, all I have heard is "What does this do?" and "It's not working!" and "I can't...."
I know that some people (myself included) are not the most aware when it comes to new things, but what really frustrates me is when people don't even try and expect me to know exactly what to do when they offer insightful information like "Why is it doing this???" but then give nothing in the way of factual insights as to what the IT is or what the DOING is supposed to be.
My answer is always the same. "I don't know.... let me have a look."
I look at the device and ask the question "What are you trying to do?"
The reply is always the same. "I don't know."
And at this point I die a little inside.
How am I supposed to know what you want when you don't know what you want?
I don't know.
It has now got to the point where I don't know what it is that I don't know and what I am supposed to know about the things that other people don't know about the things they don't know what they doing on the things they are doing them.
It is very confusing.
Right now, as I type this, I DO know that I am being looked at.
With one of THOSE looks.
It's not the same look as when I forget to do the washing up, or when I make "smells" WHICH I DO NOT MAKE BY THE WAY, but it is one of THOSE looks that is an accusation that I am responsible for something going wrong.
I am being made to feel guilty for something I have not done.
I AM AN INNOCENT MAN!
I am not, nor have I ever been on Coronation street, nor have I ever been a childrens entertainer of any kind. So why am I being made to feel like a criminal?
I don't know. But there's probably an app for it.
