The “Parable of the Button” – Angela West


by Angela Graham-West via The Republican Coffee Corner with Angela

I am always trying to help a number of my older (read distinguished) friends to use the technology that we have. It is amazing because most of the questions that they have can be answered just by “Googling”.

I asked him what button he pushed in order to get to the outcome that he is at. He stated that he did not press any buttons because he was afraid of the outcome. He was waiting for me to tell him what button to push.

So……. I had him press a random button. Nothing dire occurred as a result of this action. We then talked about the “right” buttons to press and the fact that pressing any random button will not result in the computer falling apart or blowing up.

Never be afraid to press buttons, be judicious with personal buttons (the problem of mental health is real), however, choose the forum, be careful of the audience but fear not.
