Picturesque

My mom got a new computer! Guess who has to set it up for her. And of course the instructions were all in pictures because no one wants to have to translate anything.

Seriously, I have absolutely no idea what they were trying to say. I figured it out, but not from the damn pictures.

  1. Pictures? Odd. I guess I haven't followed directions in a while. I just set up a new computer for me and just went through the motions.

  2. Sometimes, I feel like we should still be living in caves.

  3. I like pictures, but they need to be supplemented by words for when the pictures make no sense. Clearly the instructions writers have never tried knitting patterns.

  4. Ironic that something meant to make things easier ends up as a huge challenge!

  5. I'm not a very visual person so instructions that are just pictures without words never make any sense to me. I used to be horrible at helping the kids with their Lego because I never could follow the diagrams and bits would always end up on the wrong sides of things.

  6. So it's pictures or a billion translations in really tiny font from my experience.
