We all do ridiculously stupid stuff on a regular basis, but it’s always a lot of fun to laugh at other people’s stupidity. Maybe this is just an exercise to help us to forget our own ridiculousness? For an established computer professional, one of the most entertaining things that they can do is sit a new computer user in front of a machine and watch them try to operate it. In some cases, their behavior can cause you to lose your patience, but in other situations, the very questions that they ask will have you laughing in disbelief. To be fair, even advanced geeks falter from time to time, so it’s nothing to be ashamed about – we just really need a laugh sometimes, and we’re not exactly ashamed to get it at your expense. Poke fun at other people’s moronic behavior with Computer Stupidities.
As funny and ridiculous as these stories are, it doesn’t shock me one bit that most of them are real. These types of things really do happen, and I’ve experienced my fair share of user stupidity with others and myself. Feel better about yourself by reading these stories… unless of course you’re familiar with most of them from firsthand experience. If that’s the case, then you’re probably too distracted by the magical moving arrow thingy to even pay attention to what I’m saying right now.
