Don’t get me wrong, I’m no Clive Sinclair like, but trying to get my missus to underspend the difference between WiFi and Data or trying to explain to her how to print off a phone is like trying to get get my dog to change the brake pads on my car. Fackinell mun.

Asking my Mrs to remember a fecking password is like asking Stanty to cook a vegan meal

In the past, when the phone has been ringing, my missus has answered the tv remote

My Mrs is a complete technophobe, yet she’s a wizard on the tv/Sky remote

In my house, I am treated like someone who's undergone years of technical training to troubleshoot any issues occurring with anything that has a plug attached. In fact, I just have many years experience of fucking about with things until they work. I'm fairly sure it's like that for most of us. Earlier today, I had to interrupt working, to attend to my wife and daughter, as the laptop my daughter was on a classroom google chat with had frozen, they just sat there looking at it until I switched it off and on again. Exact same thing always happens when the WiFi stops working.

On the one hand, it does my head in, but on the other, at least it stops the females from breaking the important stuff.

A prime recent example of this happened recently, actually. Mrs Woody bought a special new hoover to suck up the mountains of dog hair that Mabel produces daily. It got blocked and was sucking nothing up. I offered to look at it, but was unavailable to do it immediately (was on the bog). Mrs Woody decided that, as a feminist, she'd have a go at fixing it herself, rather than wait 15 mins for me, with my years of fixing experience and shed-full of fixing equipment. By the time I'd finished my ablutions, Mrs Woody had managed to stick a knitting needle (woman's tool of choice), right through the hose. I ended up unblocking it in the bath with the tap. Luckily the big hole in the wall of the hose doesn't seem to affect it (yet) :facepalm:

I'm the one that's useless in the house regarding tech.

We had virgin for 14 years, last year we switched to BT, I dont like it.

Crap having a wank in the dark with a new remote, I knew where all the buttons were on the virgin remote, this remotes all arse backwards mun.
