And she's CONSTANTLY asking me how to do things online with it, which I can't help her with because I almost never use my phone for browsing. But she doesn't take "How the f*** should I know?" for an answer.

I've always been the tech guy in the house, and have been subject to all sorts of abuse like that. Now that I'm on the Droid, I just tell the wife that I don't know anything at all about the iPhone when she has issues, and she should talk to the kids. But, the kids are not around so it rolls back to me. Asking what her research leads her to doesn't result in anything. What's a person to do?

I have an iPhone Xr. My employer got it for me.

I'll send you my email address. Can you send me that? I know a couple of railroad guys that would get a real kick out of that.

Mrs. rjones28 is pretty tech savvy.

Last I checked, you can actually say the "other word" but I don't want to get the authorities upset.

Mojo31 03-08-22 03:51 PM

Perhaps the stenographer thought they were wild and crazy guys, cruising for American foxes, in tight pants that show off their bulges?

Are you guys still in junior high? No wonder we can’t women to come near BF.

There are some Apple-isms that drive me up the dman wall. The lack of a Delete key (as in deleting from in FRONT of the cursor) is one. The window system controls are much weaker - no breadcrumb for the path, many fewer options for quick navigation on the left, and a general "you just stay where we tell you" attitude. The Photos app is much less powerful than Windows. On and on.

But the thing is silent, and easy to travel with. I could see a world where the MBAir is (for me) superseded by a Windows laptop for the house and retires to travel and similar. Having iMessage on it is nice, though.

I like that it still has the hood ornament.

Flunked out. Never went back. :D

I'd feel sorry for Josh McDaniels if I didn't want to laugh as he fails.

I sort of grew up but I curse like a sailor, no offense to sailors. Besides a misspent youth in a pool hall and then 40 years of construction management, I have a notorious reputation as an f-bomber in public. ;)

I spent years working in labs where we cursed like sailors, plus Mrs. GeneJockey is no slouch at it. But the most amazing cusser I ever knew was a woman who worked in the warehouse with me one summer during college. She used the F-word as every part of speech except prepositions and articles.

thank you for asking. I have my follow up tomorrow. I will be quite insistent on moving to the non-surgical pain alleviation phase. 18 months of this BS is enough.

This'll probably scare the rest of them off :)

You and my dad might get along. Spent his life in construction. Got the money to buy my mom an engagement ring playing pool.

Nice ride today except for the obnoxious headwind in certain directions. Just 2 of us for the first time in a while. I felt pretty good but that wind wore me down so I took a nap after stuffing my face.

The worst I’ve heard from a woman was a very attractive blonde florist with a shop next to my office. Every other word was f—k, s++t, b++ch, etc. hired me to do some work for her company, and the b++ch stiffed me on the fees.

Is this normal? I can see right through my bottom bracket.
