Yesterday I talked to my client for 1 hour about a problem she has on my website. When she does something on the administrative website, internet explorer stops working.
Then I told her: "try Google Chrome or Firefox" and I explain why Chrome or Firefox should work. Today, she tells me that it does not work yet and sends me a picture of her screen with the problem (not a print screen, a cell phone photo, with the sun on the screen so I do not see the screen). It was the same problem as the other days. But she was on ... wait for it ... Edge (yes, she's on w10 and she uses Internet Explorer).
So I reply "try Chrome or Firefox.".
I said nothing else and she just thanks me for the help.13
I pasted scotch tape on the small sensor under the mice of everyone (like 20 people). Then I used a black marker on the scotch tape so it wad completely opaque.
Result? Everyone panicked when they tried to use their computer because the mouse was not working.5
Sometimes, people you work for are just dump.
Someone ask me this:
"Can you help me find the 'e from the internet'?"
And by "e from the internet", she means internet explorer...
The problem was, she right click it and unpinned it from the taskbar...
Ps: it's the same person who maked me do my first Rant.2
I did a little website where people can make reservations. I made an administration section where my client can create a reservation and delete them.
But every day damn I have this conversation. EVERY DAY between 9am and 10am:
My client to me: Can I ask you a question?
Client: [the question]
Me: Open the documentation i wrote for you.9
