Some friends and I are collecting some ideas to fill in the above sentence. Add to the list.<br><br>
You should not be touching a computer if...<br><br>
- You call tech support becasue you machine keeps restarting after you hit shutdown (windows 2000 machine, figure out what was wrong?).<br>
- You freak out because your mouse is on the edge of the pad, and your pointer is in the middle of the screen.<br>
- You put your new pen drive in the network port<br>
- You put a floppy disk in the cdrom<br>
- You searched for and installed "bargain buddy"<br><br><br>
The great thing about these, is that these are actual problems people came to me for when I was at the Geek Squad. There were a few more, but i can't remember them right now.

Use the CD-ROM drive for a cup holder.<br>
Think your car insurance will go up because you crashed your computer.<br>
You think adjusting your resolution is something you do only on January first.

When seeing that your dial-up internet is take a very long time to load AOL crappy software, ask the tech helping you get your computer setup "is this because it doesnt have a Pentium in it?"<br><br>
(The tech was me, and the reason it didnt have a Pentium in it was because it was a $300 walmart-special with a 1.3 GHz VIA CPU...)

HAHA! Nice list.<br><br>
You type curse words on your keyboard to spite your computer when it's not responding, as if it can read them.

...Everyone at Best Buy, Radio Shack, Office Depot, Office Max, Circuit City, or Fry's actually knows more about computers than you do.

YOU TEND TO TYPE ALL IN CAPS OR DON'T KNOW WHEN TO LET GO OF THE 1 KEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111111111<br>
You have ever been a winner, and were told this by a blinking banner on a website.<br>
You tend to forward chain letters and then hit ALT-10 to see the cool message that pops up, no really it's true i didnt believe it myself try it now!<br>
You use Limewire.
