Yesterday I spent an HOUR trying to show a coworker how to open and print a PDF document.
She didn’t want to download adobe acrobat because her “computer might be full and I wouldn’t want it to replace all of the important information.”
I checked. She is using 7 GB out of 100 GB.
I then had to walk her through the installation and answer questions like “should I accept the terms of service?” and “are you sure this isn’t a virus?”
I walked her through the installation, thinking that if I showed her how to do it instead of doing it myself it would actually help her understand for next time.
After the installation, she then got angry that everything wasn’t done printing and when I tried to explain we hadn’t printed anything yet she started complaining that our boss was “asking too much of her.”
Yea, asking someone to print a PDF is a lot.
At this point, I decided to print the document myself because even after I showed her how to do it she still had no idea what was going on.
I gave her the document and she complained because it wasn’t in order. I just walked away.
Did I mention she keeps all the memos she has EVER typed on one 200+ page document?
That is, unless she deletes them to “free up space”.
I am at the end of my rope.
I. hate. my. life.
p.s. Yea, in case you were wondering, she makes more money than I do.
