dont tell me what to do, said this old person

i was surprised when the library person came to me and ask me if i am on the wifi. i said yes, and it turned out that a old couple , man and woman, was unable to log onto the library wifi.

i went over to them, as i was curious why they could not. their laptop says the connection was weak. they were using firefox. so i said switch to internet explorer or chrome, instead of these uncommon browsers. he said he liked firefox so dont tell him what to do. well, when i heard that, i simply made a ‘huh huh’ and moved away. if u are going to expect me to help u dont start off by saying dont tell me what to do. if u know so much u wont have this problem. i find that is the trouble with old people.  they dont want to be told, and yet, they get into problems with the internet. and should welcome people who will tell them. my way of dealing with old people who tell me not to tell them what to do, is to drop them, and let them squeak in their own juices. 

so i went back to my laptop, and continued to read the papers.

later i saw them leaving, so it looked like they were unable to get online even using internet explorer, or whatever it is called now. haha. its quite possible they are using the old internet explorer which is being replaced by what is it?, the name escapes me  for the moment.

but there is a way of doing it to get online that is not intuitive and what u would expect. haha. but i am not going to help them. hehe.
