So I'm a member of a web-based group that will help each other out in case of disasters (like tornados, earthquakes, etc); part of it includes being able to read and understand the rules for how the group works.   It is not a "chat group" or a blog; there are few actual rules but several guidelines; there is a website and a google map.  I'm not especially computer savvy, but the rules and guidelines are clear enough for me to understand with one or two readings.

So there's a post from a new member

"I'm new and need some directions on to do everything, thanks"


I mean, the directions are RIGHT THERE....

It's that whole 'reading' thing, y'know...much better if someone else spoon-feeds it to 'em...

Some people can't even put in the effort. On alt.gothic.fashion years ago there was the famous post "where do I find utilikilts?" utilikilt.com, you google impaired twit.

Does this person attend OTC? Because that sounds like one of my students...

This translates to: "In case of an emergency, save me first! I'm too stupid to read the directions to save anyone else."

I thought it meant "I'm gonna die"

It's a universal law that at least three out of every five noobs must not read any previous posts, but expect you to put it out for them in a new listing.

Loving the icon. Is the quote yours?

Alas, no. I stole it from someone who was reposting from wordboner.com. It's an amusing site, though.

Not surprising.
But then, I did 10 years in tech support. Very little about human stupidity, cupidity, and self-centeredness surprises me.
