Only every day. 9 times out of 10, it's me I want to smack. That other time, I try to walk away. I don't always succeed, but I usually do. I understand exactly the kind of frustration you are talking about, though - it has, on one or two occasions, made me literally hopping mad, as in jumping up and down (hard) to keep from going totally postal. In retrospect, it's a pretty silly visual, except for the fact that I am also large and can yell *really* loud.

If your IT support is based at the Supply Depot in Mechanicsburg, I must say I know some of those folks, and can understand why this would happen to you with some regularity.

I do that too when I try to explain things to myself. Leave yourself alone, it's less painful

ah it happens....I got a guy here at work like that. He's just worried he will mess up, that's all. It bugs me to high hell having to practically hand-hold him through stuff, but it could be worse and have someone that jst messes things up. his work is exceptional quality...he just needs to learn to be more sure of himself, that's all.

Just today while waiting in line at the store. There was only one lane open and the lady at the front asked five times if the popcorn in her popcorn tin came in bags. Doh. The whole line wanted to smack her.
