Introducing the Book

My brother showed me this video and I thought it was so cute I had to blog it. Mike says this guy is the fast kid in the slow class, but I think he probably works for the government.

Hey it’s Wolf/DMMGMFM's son.
Ya... its funny watching this and thinking back to the 90's and teaching... certain people in my family members about computers. I won’t name names but that video is great capturing the essence of being help desk or phone tech support!

But don't you also work for the government, Laurie girl...and is this somewhat autobiographical?

(Ar Ar...great; sounds like Wolf has some tales he could tell, but won't...not with that new Element)

Carol said...

These people work in my office. Last week one of the blonde girls came to me and said Çarol, the photocopier is out of paper'. I kid you not.

Cathy said...

That's me and my husband as he tries to make me computer savy. I've gotta share this with him.

I'm pretty sure I was that guy's lab partner in my highschool Biology class.

NatureWoman said...

This is great Laurie! Thanks for sharing it.

Laurie said...

Son, that's why we call you tech support! You funny, funny lad...

WW, yes I do! And yes it is!

And I'm pretty sure Wolf won't say much if he knows what's good for him. :-| ha!

Carol, I'm not even surprised. I've worked with several people like that, though not lately.

Cathy, I would have guessed you for a computer whiz!

Littlepea, too funny! Did he make it through the class?

Naturewoman, glad you liked it! My brother gets all the credit!

Mary said...

Laurie, thanks for the laugh! With everyone's nose glued to the monitor for the past twenty years, books are becoming foreign, ey?

Very funny.

Laurie said...

Mary, yes they are, which is kind of sad...

I think I taught that guy when he was a kid and in a Confirmation class.

I just got my Internet connection back. Alex knocked the modem onto the floor and I couldn't get it to connect without calling the helpful folks at Bell South (now ATT&T).

Laurie said...

Nick, I'm so glad you're back! Give Alex a pat for me and tell him to behave!

Am I the only one who thinks these gentlemen look like monks delving into Biblical Texts in an ancient stone monastery? Are they planning revisions? Hmmmmmm, maybe it was good that the lay populace began to learn to read.

Laurie said...

Bonita, that's what I thought too!
