THE UNINITIATED TO TECHNOLOGICAL TERMINOLOGY AND LANGUAGE
A tale of the technologically challenged
The office supervisor and staff receive their new desktop units each person has been tasked to unpack their unit and set it up on the desks as it suits them.
The office supervisor quickly sets-to opening his box and removal of the contents he finds new desktop computer Tower and monitor and various cables plus a manual.
Being the typical male; reading the manual will only happen if all else fails, men mostly operate under the premise men don’t follow the numbered diagrams to setup anything!
(And all the wives said Yeap that’s truly the typical male.)
Well, our typical male does just this he’s got his desktop ready to switch on and that’s when things rapidly go downhill after multiple attempts of pressing the power button located on the tower followed by the wiggling of cables etc, between the monitor and the tower he crumbles into his chair.
The office junior happens to come past his desk noticing his supervisor looks distressed; he asks what’s wrong, the supervisor rattles off all the checks and double checks he done to get the desktop to turn on with no success, the young junior cast an eye over the computer and quickly makes; a suggestion
“You need to integrate your power supply at source”
The supervisor quietly gazed at the junior like a new born calf at a gate, moments passed and the junior realised the supervisor was like a blank cheque to this instruction hence he translated the instruction terms his supervisor hopefully would understand.
