Billfold, are you spying on me? I bought a printer last night and am actually giddy about it! It was the first printer I bought in about 5 years so it’s the first printer I got that’s wireless. I love the ability to scan directly to Evernote! It’s like I’m living in the cloud future.

This is exactly why I don’t own a printer. My last attempt at installation ended in tears.

Easy solution: Hand-copy everything instead of printing!

I actually got a one-hour job trying to set up a printer while the printer company filmed me and took notes. I had to pretend they were invisible and could use the manual only, no tips were given. I think I earned around $80.

Yeah, I generally feel like computer things work they way they’re supposed to and that I have a solid grasp on modern technology…but using a new printer always makes me feel like I’m taking crazy pills.
