How to keep an idiot happy

Post by Askit on Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:31 pm

We had a little holiday in the sun (only fair as or MH is having a little holiday at Willersley rolleyes) and I thought I would get onto the local wifi to check my emails. The wifi provider required me to register and, when I tried, it appears that I had already registered with them some time in the past and was instructed to log on instead. Unfortunately there was no way I would remember the password used so I entered my email address and clicked the "forgot your password" button. I got the message back that they had sent me an email explaining how to reset my password.

If only I could get onto wifi to check my emails..........confused0

Not unlike having to tear open a box, only to find inside it the instructions for opening it without damaging it.

And yes, I have actually had one such experience, so this is not a humorous urban myth!  happyyes

I had a intermittant broadband access problem last night. Contacted the BT helpline, who diagnosed a line fault preventing access. They confirmed the fault by email?

When I was gainfully employed, our fairly large office had an "intranet" for electronic communications. Every time the system went down our head of admin would send us an email to let us know    think_smiley_46

 Always gave us something to look forward to when it was up and running again  snigger

Or the old one of needing scissors to get scissors out of its packaging. I have seen both the welded clear plastic case and them tyrapped to a backing card.
