Ridiculous Moments of Tech Illiteracy

Sure, we're not all geniuses with computers. But at this point in time, when computers have been a necessity for most households and workplaces for a few decades, it's a little ridiculous when someone doesn't know that you can't print a clickable link. Tech support gets some ridiculous requests, and some of them are even mean, like this Karen who had her bluff called and had her website deleted.

Patient IT Worker Helps Customer Figure Out The Idiotic Reason Her Computer Won’t Work

We all have severe lapses in observation from time to time but damn, Karen. What can we say? At least she figured it out sooner than later. The devil's in the details.
