German hurls computer from apartment block
'Who hasn't felt like doing that?' admit police
A German chap who demonstrated his frustration with his PC by throwing it out of the window escaped a fine when police oficers decided they rather sympathised with his actions.
According to the Evening Standard, Hanover cops were alerted in the middle of night by neighbours who reported a "loud crash" outside their apartment block. Officers duly attended the scene, finding the pavement strewn with electronic debris.
The unnamed 51-year-old perp explained he'd "got annoyed" with his machine, which struck a chord with the police officer who admitted: "Who hasn't felt like doing that?"
Accordingly, he was not sanctioned for disturbing the peace, but was made to clear up the mess. The make of computer and offending OS are not noted. ®
It's a classic case ...
of drag-and-drop functionality.
Just DRAG your computer over to the window and DROP it out.
Dear Lord, this guy is most certainly a saint!
This should become standard answer for "complicated" helpdesk-callers.
"Sir, I need you to open your window, please..."
It's actually, "The fingers you have used to dial are too fat. To obtain a special dialing wand, please mash the keypad with your palm now."
"That said, I bet it was a Mac. What a load of shite those things are."
I get the urge to throw my Mac out the window daily.
Not that I'm flaming them...
OS/Platform is irrelevant
That said, I bet it was a Mac. What a load of shite those things are.
