Do these people ask you this because of your sex or your position?

I've had three people come to me asking what's wrong with the coffee maker.(I don't know and I don't care, frankly.) After the first person said that he thought there was no power to the coffee machines (we are having major renovations so sometimes we lose power for a short time while they do work), so I got up to check.
IT's just that no coffee drinker had yet bothered to TURN ON THE MACHINES and MAKE COFFEE.
So when 2nd and 3rd person came to me, I said "You drink coffee, figure it out." Are you freaking kidding me? THe machine obviously is set to "off" and you think the power is out? And you're a retired air force pilot and now electrical engineer of many years?
No. I'm not helping you figure out the coffee machine.

One of my cousins (couple times removed) lives in Liverpool and has been taking old pictures of the city and contrasting or blending them with modern pictures of the same location. I love the way architecture in the UK is such a blend of the various time periods. For those of you on FB who are interested, the link to all the pictures is at the end of this article.

I LOVE this stuff! Thank you for sharing! I just love when people do this. I've seen this with downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul and it's so cool to see how different -- and the same -- some things are.

That is a horrible picture of her. She was in the last Transformers movie (replaces Megan Fox). She is super hot.
Yeah, that's a pretty horrible picture of her. The google images search showed that she can look not only beautiful, but interesting looking (maybe it's her nose -- I do like an interesting nose).

Heh my numbers are 6669

THey ask mainly because they like to act helpless/"I don't know how it works" when they don't want to deal with it. Coffee makers, copy machines (really? You don't know how to send a fax? There are instructions right there in front of your face that I typed up just for people like you. Don't stand there and sigh loudly in hopes I'll walk you through it for a fourth time.)

GOogle her at google images and she's much prettier.
MANY models aren't so great looking until they've had full makeup and air brushing. I have friends who've been in the modeling biz (photographer and makeup artist) for 20+ years and the before and after shots can be shocking.
Like Chloe Sevengy (sp?). I do not understand how she got to be a model. And terrible taste in clothes to boot.

That is so cool -- the one that he's holding up the pic and it blends with the modern background.

Very artistic eye.

Probalbny most people believe that Hoffa is either buried somewhere or his body burned in acid.

Do we really have to spend money to find him at this point? Would there be any benefit in finding his body?

Aw, thanks. ;)

It just was aggravating. These very smart people act so helpless because they want someone else to do something for them. If a partner asks me "can you fax/scan/copy this for me?" I say "sure!" and I do it. But when a partner stands at the machine and sighs loudly, I put phasers on "ignore."

And even if they found him, I doubt there'd be any physical evidence that would lead them to prosecuting somebody, so it does seem like a waste of money. Let his family fund the sear h.

Right? I did *not* want last night's to go super late. I had early hockey this morning.
