^ I switched to Chrome when Firefox was giving me the same amount of flack
I'm soooo fucking annoyed.
I believe in being comfortable when you study, but my mum has pissed me off.
Prof does Powerpoint slides, like 50 per class, so I ask my mum to print them from work to save me time, paper, and ink.
"Mum, please print when/if you have time. Save some trees, print 6 per page...do you know HOW to do that? No? Alright I'll tell you..."
1) I give her written instructions because she's computer illiterate
2) I make a screen caps of how to set it to 6 slides per page
3) I tell her to call me if she can't manage it!!!! AND SHE DID.
In the end she asks a friend how to do it in the past. This time I guess she didn't, now I have a fucking BOOK's WORTH of power point slides with between 100-200 words per page that I'm flipping every minute. It's not even an elegant print, I gotta keep flipping it around because it printed both ends.
I think I've said before, I don't devote myself to "living green" and all that -- but when it's this OBVIOUS and AVOIDABLE waste where after I gave her three different methods of help, I get a little pissed that she's this fucking thick. This also stretches into NUMEROUS circumstances where we've had to deal with technological or other issues because her learning curve is like like a goddamn tortoise going up a steep hill. When I say this to her, that I was upset she didn't try asking me when I called her, showed her pictures, and everything else, she gets upset at me snapping back "I'll do it tomorrow!!" like I made the mistake.
Also, fuck her for making me feel guilty about cleaning my room and the house. I don't deserve to have my garbage searched every time I clean. I can't even begin to describe the nightmare that can be our bathroom. It looks nice at first, but there's scum, smoker's "yellowing", dust (and when it gets wet it just seems to stick to surfaces), and DEAD BUGS everywhere.
She does NOTHING in the house and the few times I ask a favor I think I'd have better odds convincing a politician to change some laws around.
