Girlfriend (she has little idea of tech) was asking if I could fix her notebooks wifi.

I didn't answer that for a week.

Yesterday she really needed wifi, so she went to google and followed several posts - until she managed find the problem and to reinstall her wifi driver for the first time! She was so proud of herself.

I hope I'll never forget that grin of her - full of triumph!

I couldn't be more proud of her myself

    Please have the decency to respond, next time. And tell the person why you don't do it.

    @plusgut @Lahsen2016 @calmyourtities ok, the rant turned out more shitty than I wanted oops. Actually she is not mad at me at all. We both had a tough week and did not see us until today evening where we had dinner (it was great btw ;) so we both were short on communication.

    @plusgut with not responding I meant "Sorry, no time" :)

    @calmyourtities with a long relationship comes a long... buffer of course! What were you thinking?

    @justwellbrock I like how you turned this from slightly looking like an asshole into something positive! (with that last comment)

    My wife has been asking me to look at her WORKS laptop for nearly a year. It runs slow and is crap to work on, on account of being cheap. It has a long battery life though...

    I cannot fix that which was born broken...

    @calmyourtities btw your username turns my last statement in somewhat really funny to me 🤣

    @linuxxx I think that's how I work in general 😅 it's like the first sentence in my user Manuel "beware:..."
