Listening to baby sounds…
Me: How does she make that sound…
Rockstar: (Knowledgeably) She’s gargling her own saliva.
Me: How d’you know?
Rockstar: I used to do it too <been there, done that shrug>
Me: Dumb ole wifi is down again…
Rockstar: <authoritatively> I’ll show you the Five Reasons Why It’s Not Working.
Me: Yeah, right. You came up with 5 reasons why our wifi doesn’t work?
Rockstar: No, it’s here. Click on the question mark.
Rockstar: <clicks on question mark> See?
Me: OMG you actually went and read this stuff?! How did you even know that icon opens up this whole bunch of stuff? (looking at it) And it just goes on and on in the most boring language imaginable and – WHY would anyone read it? Why are you reading this thing?? It’s not even like there are cute pictures!
Rockstar: I was trying anything, to get Luigi’s Mansion (video game footage on Youtube) and it wouldn’t open. So, I wanted to know why.
Now you know who reads these things the tech nerds draft nicely in the software help. Software designers, you do not write in vain. The Rockstar is reading them. Last few times, he would come bother me about the safari not working and I’d have him restart the laptop and grumble he didn’t try to fix it himself… Now I feel bad because he really went looking for a way to get the safari to work before bugging me…
