To want to hit OH with his blasted laptop?
I ordered something for OH on Amazon (he can't manage itgrin) and its got to be sent back to Manchester so I arranged by myhermes for it to go back (he can't manage that either grin) and had to print the label out so for 2hrs I tried with both my laptop and my ipad to print this blasted label that I'd already paid for but do you think I could print the damn thing NO NO NO!
Despite my having previously printed many flight tickets etc etc etc the damn thing would not print it just kept shooting out blank sheets of paper. So then OH says let me have a go , puts on his laptop and despite NEVER having printed anything before from his damn laptop he managed to print 2 copies within 2 mins.
Well I had to walk down the garden before I slapped his SMUG face angry

I'm now beginning to wonder if he isn't quite so unsavvy (if thats even a word) as he makes out . Might be he's played me all this time just cos he can't be @rsed! hmm

Oh grrr!! He didn't say 'I don't know what your problem was' with smug complacency did he? I feel for you!!

Well, you can offload it all now. Just say, "you're so good at this". Then sit back and have a coffee.

I shall definately try the 'over to you smartypants', trouble I don't trust him to do it properly... grin

Actually I do this to my OH. I can't programme his CNC mill but sometimes when he can't get a programme to run I look over his shoulder and say "did you mean to put that there ...." And he growls changes what I have spotted and it works grin
So satisfying.

My husband never comes near the computed, I think he is terrified of it!
