Could be. I guess I'm just tired of having people (my mother-in-
law does this a lot) say, "I'm having a problem. I was working in
Microsoft and it's not letting me..."

Usually she means Word but sometimes it's Internet Explorer or
something else and I have to figure it out from context. I love
my mother-in-law so I put up with it. But from other people, I
find myself being less patient.

Now am I off topic?
