Tasks with Plenty of Documentation: 2, theverge.com: 0



Hello everyone! I’m back at my home again, which is a lot like being out at my cabin but with Internet that’s twice as slow and three times more expensive.

This time however, instead of having an impressive amount of self-confidence while assembling a PC that looks like it was assembled by a sleepwalker, it’s someone blaming the manufacturer for their own incompetence and inability to follow an instruction manual filled with more detail than any of those cathedrals that inevitably burn down during renovations.


I mean really- the guy even says he somehow killed his wife’s phone once using a hair dryer. I don’t know how the hell you’d even do that (are the heat elements exposed? Does your wife use a heat gun to dry her hair, and the heat gun has exposed heat elements?) but if this guy can kill a phone with a hair dryer, then I really don’t want to imagine what would happen if I needed a handyman to do repairs on my house and he showed up...
