Is it just me ?

6 posts in this topic

So, I've been trying to help out for IDK maybe 5 years now on the beagleboard.org google groups. And,I see all kinds of stupid things. Just tonight, I'm trying to help out someone who obviously could not <insert explicitive > with out a link on instructions how to do so . . .

So, I answer this person, tell him he needs to be more verbose in the explanation of his problem, then proceed to tell him what I think the problem is. This goes on for a few posts . . . Robert Nelson comes on, says the same exact thing I say, but gives this idiot an exact link to something the guy should have already known . . . suddenly, it's fsck all to me and thank you very much Robert Nelson sir . . .

Make me want to go out and help people spitting on me in the street . . . Yeah, sarcasm definitely.

EDIT:

 Yeah I probably should have mentioned the point, My point is that, is it just me, or did young people get drastically less . . .intelligent ? Sure seems that way from where I'm sitting. Not only that, if you do not give a link to something, for this younger generation. It seems they can not figure things out on their own. Let along come up with an original idea, or at minimum, any idea that was not handed to them by someone else . . .

It's really frustrating. Because I knew the answer to the question asked, and gave most of the answer already. I was just waiting to make sure the problem was as it seemed to be. For this, the person needed to give me some information, that should have already been provided . . .But since young people do not seen to know how to properly ask a question. It's all my fault.

Yes, yes, yes, I do not know how to properly ask a question myself sometimes. We're all guilty. But you know, I can usually find myself a way out of a wet paper sack . . . We all need help, we're all also not all knowing . . . we're people, and we're all flawed. Great. But at least when I take the time to help you out. Show some appreciation at least . . .

I wont stop, but I do not feel awesome I just know some stuff. I'm not looking for praise or anything like that. I just want people to start thinking in a way where they do not necessarily need to ask questions all the time. Meaning, yes, I ask questions too. I know a lot of things are possible, but I would just rather talk to, or ask someone whose had hands on experience about some things. A lot of times that makes me feel better about approaching a given situation. Anyway, I totally get that.

One thing everyone should probably know about my frame of mind last night is that I had just finished off a bottle of wine so . . . I was not drunk or anything, but I was not exactly sober either. Had a good buzz I guess you could say. Still, this type of situation does bother me. It's like if you do not lead the "sheep" exactly where you want them to be, they just eat, sleep and sh** all in the same spot. Except, we, do not exactly need to lead these sheep anywhere. because their problem, is not ours. So when yo utry and help them out, and they just spit back in your face. I think any normal person is going ot get pissed off, and rightly so.
