dear employees, we think you're stupid

looks like work is rolling out a new software release to the office i am technically attached too. and, as is typical, they want everyone to actually turn their machines off for the weekend. but was it really necessary to include this in the email?

You can power down your computer by using the following procedure:

  1. Click "Start" in the lower left corner of your computer screen
  2. Choose "Shut Down"
  3. In the pull-down menu under “What do you want the computer to do?” make sure "Shut Down" is selected
  4. Click "Okay"

This will sign you off and power down your computer.
i'm sorry, but that's sort of insulting. do they honestly think people don't turn off their machines because they don't know how? not due to laziness, or not wanting to have to wait for the damn thing to boot up in the morning? sheesh.

It happened on the strip where the road is wide,
Two cool sharks standin' side by side,
Yeah, my fuel injected Stingray and a four-thirteen,
Were revvin' up our engines and it sounds real mean,
Tach it up, tach it up,
Buddy gonna shut you down,

Declining numbers at an even rate
At the count of one we both accelerate
My Stingray is light, the slicks are startin' to spin,
But the four-thirteen's really diggin' in,
Gotta be cool now, power shift here we go,

Super Stock Dodge winding out in low,
But my fuel injected Stingray's really startin' to go,
To get the traction I'm riding the clutch,
My pressure plate's burning, that machine's too much,

Pedals to the floor, hear his dual quads drink,
And now the four-thirteen's lead is startin' to shrink,
He's hot with ram induction but it's understood,
I've got a fuel injected engine sittin' under my hood,
Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down.

There are those of us who remember when carburetors were things you found under car hoods.
