Tech Workers Have A Shootout


Imagine tech workers in a cowboy western movie, such as, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, or any of the Clint Eastwood westerns.  🙂

Oh yeah, well let’s settle this with a duel! Just let me get my e-gun!


Sorry, I just need to boot

Sorry, my gun app is not working. Just let me reinstall it

Sorry, I just need to download the gun app again

Sorry, the download is compressed in yet another new format.
Just let me download and install another piece of software that will unzip that format.

Sorry, this gun app version just wants the latest java version installed first

Sorry, just let me figure out which java version is the correct one to download. The docs just didn’t say.

Sorry, I just did everything that it said to do in the useless docs. But java is just not working. Just let me trouble shoot.

Sorry, there just is no documented solution for this useless error message

Sorry, perhaps I just need to figure out the java path

Sorry, now I should just be able to just install the gun app

Sorry, I think I just need to figure out the paths in the global settings for this gun app

Sorry, the gun app just wants me to register

Sorry, the app just wants to send me a text on my cell phone

Sorry, I just need to configure the gun app

Sorry, the gun app just needs even more permissions

Sorry, I just need to reboot again

Sorry, I think it just needs some drivers installed. Just let me figure out which are the correct drivers to download.

Sorry, just let me install these drivers. Maybe these ones will work.

Sorry, just let me figure out how to create the connectivity

Sorry, the script they supplied is not working, Just let me debug the script. It’s not documented.

Sorry, I think just needs another undocumented library

Sorry, just me figure out how to configure and use this library. It’s logic and syntax is weird.

Sorry, I just need to figure out how to load the data

Sorry, I just need to load the data

Sorry, this data load is just not working. Just let me fix it.

Sorry, they just changed the interface and navigation in this version

Sorry, it’s just got an advertisement for me. Just let me get rid of it. But there it is again

Sorry, just let me figure out how to pull the trigger

Sorry, just let me email tech support

Sorry, the tech support email just robo emailed me back, telling me to post on their community website instead

Sorry, I just got to register on the community website

Sorry, I just have to respond to the email the community website

Sorry, I’m just not allowed to ask any questions if I’ve only just registered

Sorry, I’m just getting trolls, speculators, and snobs on the website. No one is giving me a simple answer

Sorry, just let me do a whole bunch of trial and error, and figure it out myself.

Ok, I’m really sorry about all that. Ready?

Uh sorry, the gun app is auto updating already, even though I just downloaded and installed it
….

Rinse and Repeat.

….
Don’t you just miss analog,
When everything just worked
First time, Every time?

🙂

For humor on this issue, see this hilarious scene in the Canadian movie, Gunless.  Start at 1 hour, 4 minutes, 30 seconds.
