So, in the printing industry, FTP has a long and storied history as the standard method of sending art assets. But as time has gone on, more and more people are utterly incapable of handling FTP.

Customer: "I sent you the file. It's called xyz.zip"

PM: "I don't see the file."

Customer: "I know I sent it."

PM: "Let me check with IT."

I check the logs. No such file was uploaded.

PM: "What program did you use to send the file?"

Customer: "Firefox"

Every. Fucking. Time.

It turns out the Germans actually have a word for this:

    @Alice Eh. Well Arschkrampe by itself is a thing, but not exactly easy to translate. "Clueless idiot" comes close. The best insults are the ones that don't translate.

    German has this nice feature that you can connect nearly all words. For example:

    data transfer

    data = Daten
    transfer = Übertragung
    => Datenübertragung

    easy as that.
    Oh btw Schokobackfischstäbchen
