That " I Hate It" Moment In Your Life

|

Have you been into any situations that you've wished you would have said DUH! straight off to the face of that someone in front of you? Yup, it's annoying and God forbids, I really hate when I'm caught in one of those situations. I remembered well enough one such incident so here goes...

So, okay. You have to stand in front of a large audience comprising of teachers who are newbies to anything (and in most cases, everything) computers. Well, that is why MOE appointed us to give courses as to enlighten our future currently-teaching- teachers that ten years from now, you'll be warping in and out from your classroom~NOT. I mean, we are benefitting whatever technology is offering to us. So is our purpose there...until....interrupciĆ³n...

Me:(about to end my slot...) So teachers, please ensure that you abide by the rules of CASPER  in producing your teaching presentations using Microsoft Powerpoint and...interrumpido

T1: I have a question, supposed that I have and IDE SATA Harddrive and I want to hook it on my Socket 7 motherboard, are there any jumpers that I should be setting on and off

Me(looking at the rest of the team): They shrugged and all eyes rolling up...

Me: Sir, if you don't mind..let me finish with my slot first...

T1: Nooo...I'm using Windows XP SP2 and I cannot install my IDE SATA HDD..do I need to use different connection cable?

Me ( pre-annoyed): Sir, please. (okay, God said be kind to old people...)... you should update your Windows XP to SP3 and change your BIOS setting from AHCI to IDE before installing the hard drive..

By now my audience is all eyes to this particular fella...

T1: My setting says that it has been already turn to IDE automatically by default.

Me: So it is turn to on by default, then plug it in, install it lah... (still pre-annoyed)

T1: That's I'm asking you, how to troubleshoot this....

My officers are glaring at me, and oh! how their eyes are sooo saying to me "skip this guy and just finish the farking slot" so I did... cut off eye contact with the subject and continued my presentation..then..

T1: Cikgu, you have not answered my question yet.... and just when I'm about to boil out he said

T1: What to do lorr, the HDD sudah hangkang.... and he laughed and sneered and his not-so-sporting friend told me later on that he said I was crappy, not well versed and itu pun dia tidak tau ka....... Now, that's the pinnacle of my annoyance to this particular piece of shit...

And after lots and lots of complaints about this particular fella's antics, I went hell all loose on him over the next slot.

Me: Ladies and Gents cikgu2 semua, today I'll be explaining to you the basic maintenance of your school laptops AND PLEASE TO THE TEACHER, MR.....FROM SK.......IF YOU LIKE IT SO MUCH SITTING AROUND ANNOYING THE JURULATIH UTAMA OR OTHER CPs' PLEASE, MAKE HEED THAT YOU MAY AS WELL RETURN TO YOUR SCHOOL AND DO NOT ATTEND THE REMAINING 5 DAYS OF THIS COURSE AND I REPEAT..DO  NOT ATTEND THIS COURSE!!

And he did..that pathetic man did not return....
