cables, by the law of Sod
we threw away last Sunday.
The scrap metal man was only
too pleased to take them.
What do we need today?
The cable that connects the Canon wireless printer
to my new laptop.
Wireless? I hear you cry...
you don't need a cable.
By our own admission, we aren't
computer whizz kids,
nor would I want to be.
The trouble is, the printer will scan
things to the computer,
but not print bumpf from the computer.
We have followed all directions,
stuck the disc in to start over
and still the same.
We discover looking at the instruction book,
us old folks think a hard copy
is preferable to on-line help;
reason being, the computer lobs the odd
we need the lead in order to reset it.
Can you cotton-picking believe it?
It is so frustrating that we haven't got that innate
computer understanding that
most people many years our junior seem to have.
The biggest puzzle to me,
is the fact it works one way
and not the other.
Addendum... Nay, a sodding great humongous... Addendum...
I've only gone and blown the doors oft! By trial and error, I've sorted out the problem...
How, heaven only knows? The only trouble now is... has common sense come and bitten me on the bum...
I bloody hope not... as I've made my name by being ditsy with tact having no place in my life.
Crimplene and bobble slippers here we come............ Hold tight!
