So here I am... thinking to myself how does this kid not know about the shift key?

Me: "Ok we're going to test see if you have sudo access. Please enter your password, now"
Student: ~stares at the black terminal box and begins pressing the caps lock key. The light doesn't display~
Student: "Um... what? Do I need to enter a new password?"
Me: "No"
Continues to click the caps-lock button and waiting for a light to appear on the keyboard. It doesn't. He continues clicking.
Me: "You need to press the shift button"
Him: "What???"
Me: "You need to press the shift button"
Him: "Um.. I don't understand"
Him: Presses shift button, nothing happens. Goes back to pressing caps lock button.
Me: "Your password has a capital letter in it right?"
Him: "Um... yeah."
Me: "Press the shift button to capitalize your letters."
Him: "I don't understand... Do I need to enter a new password?"
Me: "No... you need to press and hold the shift key to get a capital letter"
Him: "................................ ............................................ . . . . . .. .. .. .. .. .. . . . . . . . . . . . . ...................... . . . . . . . Oh..."
Him: "Presses and holds the shift button with his thumb and then presses the Z key."
Me: ~What in the hell are you doing?~ 🤦
Me: "Perfect it looks like you are a part of the sudoers list."
Me: "You can take you computer back."
Me: ~Do you fucking use the caps lock key to capitalize all the first letters in your sentences? Please tell me you don't!~

    My sister does this, but she is like 'the flash' of typing so no sweat.

    He pressed and held the shift key with his left thumb and then using his index finger, very crookedly, presses the Z key. Just imagine this, and imagine my slight disgust

    @iSwimInTheC That's fine, depending on the keyboard layout... But yeah.. a lesson in dactylo wouldn't hurt.

    @xewl Definitely a qwerty keyboard. Z sits right next to the left handed shift key

    @xewl ask @Linux (: I'm just offering some free redundancy on his avatar for the time being :3 (and there's that avatar switcheroo fad that resurfaced recently)

    @Condor Sadly coming like 17K short, or I'd add to the redundancy lmao

    @xewl eh, just replicate whatever you can :) @devTea isn't able to get the white tiger yet either, so now my avatar backup there is accompanied by a doggo :)
