Apple Odyssey


I made another trek up to the Towne Center today, to visit the Apple store.  They put me at a "group training" table.  It was more like "group therapy".  The group consisted of four people all over the age of 50, all in a state of frustration.  We had a very young, very kind, very patient trainer named John.  (That's the actual photo I took there; see, now I can use my photos again!)

The Apple guy I visited last Thursday was very tech savvy but had no people skills at all.  I don't think he was able to come down to my level.  John, on the other hand, had the patience of a saint.  He went around the table, helping us one at a time, answering all of our beginner-type questions.  He even helped me set the date on my camera.

So, I came home happy and confident this time.  I have conquered... until the next update comes along.

Awesome!
I keep threatening to brave-up
and spend a day learning new tricks
at an Apple Store... when I finally do, I am
crediting you with inspiring me!

Thank you, Natalie! I hope you get a teacher as good as the one I had today.

This ability to explain something from the very bottom rung of knowledge seems to be missing in many clever people. My husband being one!

My father was that way. He taught math at university but couldn't help me with my math homework.

It does, Rachel. I'm entering the new millenium now!

Thanks to him, I did. He was a born teacher.
