Stuxnet4254314dI'd no longer feel guilty if they didn't do as i tell them.
When the hurricane hit the states a few weeks ago, it left many of the roads flooded. I hung outside a local store (VERY small town) and just chilled out. They had a generator with power, so I mooched off it to charge my devices lol.
But my friends and I would both give directions and the fucktards would do the exact opposite. By the 3rd day, I stopped giving them directions on where to go. The cunts wouldnt listen anyways.
I feel you. I'm broke for as long as I can remember, and that is one of the reasons I started using gnu/linux and free software. After a year or so using it and learning, I was confident enough to spread the good news; you don't have to buy another laptop or crack licences or pay for customer support, there are those things called "FOSS" and "community" that will help you if you're not tech savvy. And when they watched me playing around with the terminal or the desktop interface, some asked me for help... with windows. I tried a couple times they try Ubuntu or something alike, but in time I agreed to take a look to some PC's and laptops. And that was a bad decision, because I learned that most of the time, they brought the problem to themselves with bad maintenance and worse user behaviour. After try a clean and give them some directives on good security practices, they went home and acted like if nothing happened. Aaaand a couple ways earlier, their (again) trashed computer was suddenly my fault.
With the few ones that asked me to install a Linux distro... some are fine, some not so much.
But I always end up with a bad feeling after helping a friend with her/his computer. Maybe I don't even help, just transfer frustrations...
