Dumbass #166 - Submitted on 03-11-2005 by ellencherry
I know it's a pointing device, but come on!

In the early 90s, I managed a busy branch of a large copy store chain. We had a very large computer area with about 20 workstations available to customers.

One day I was helping out in that department moving from user to user answering questions and generally helping out. At one of the windows machines sat a middle aged woman who was just staring at the monitor. I asked her if I could help her with anything. She said that she was new to computers and couldn't figure out how to move the 'pointer' on the screen. I showed her the mouse, demonstrating the basic point and click motion. She thanked me and went to work.

I came back by a few minutes later to check on her and - you're not going to believe this - she had the mouse in her hand, up in the air, pointed at the monitor and was furiously clicking! Like it was a remote control.

I had to go to the back room to compose myself before I could get it together enough to explain it to her. It still makes me giggle.
