    I know what you mean lol I've just started my career in IT and just finished an apprenticeship and I already facepalm at least 30 times a day lol
    Yeah IT always gives me the biggest facepalms - I build my own machines for work because I know what hardware plays nicest with the software - my builds are always at least 1000 cheaper than a similar offering from Dell or HP and they never have problems. So I sell my setups at an initial meeting then get a call a month later when the company have bought 20 Dell machines with worse specs than I recommended asking me to set up the system because they keep getting blue screens due to conflicts. That one is always a double hand facepalm into holding head in hands move

    MSFTisMIA..... if you are ever in the little city of Danville IL, stop by. I will buy you a drink. Nothing but respect.
    Reminds me of when I was an intern during college summer holidays. Looking back, no doubt I was bugging out my supervisors with questions and incompetence
    Snowmutt, if I'm ever in the area (I'm NYC based) I will take you up on that offer.
    Gedzum, incompetence is ok, but I get that 10% of the time. What I get is mostly talking, little hearing and zero listening. Most of these teens are 15-17. It's a charter school for kids who are not too far from slipping through the cracks, so of course they like to hear themselves talk more than listen to you. The funny part is that even though I expect it, since I've been working with youth for a few years, this group is just in their own way than usual. They need a lot of work and ever day it's a wrestling match. The joke among my coworkers is that we need to do a reality TV show called "16 &$%&#"*! Loud" with these youth. And it is mostly girls. Sighs.

    Has to be the best, asks for advice, doesn't listen, it doesn't work, so they ask for you to fix it

    I have a bit of sweet tooth. This was taken in one of my favorite cafes in London.

    I was going to say it could be worse, it could be Asda, but then I realised it wouldn't matter which one I put... Tesco, Sainsbury's... all the same.
