Great Googly Moogly

Dear Computer Users Everywhere,

Before you decide to venture on to the interweb, please be sure that you understand the difference between the URL address bar (the place where you type in web addresses) and Google (a search engine). Believe it or not, there are some web sites that are missed by Google's all-seeing eye.

(I was going to make some nerdy comment about how even the all-seeing eye of Sauron missed Frodo Baggins, but I'm way too cool to even know about such things. *Jules has shifty eyes as she pushes her glasses further up on the bridge of her nose.*)


Anyway, friends, please take my advice and learn how to GO to a website instead of SEARCH for it. And, if you can't learn the difference, please don't call customer service and get frustrated when you can't find a website.

Much love,

Hey, I have a computer job, and someone I work with was having issues with that last week. She got so frustrated! Maybe she's the one who called in.

As someone who just started a job answering calls just like this for customer service, all I can say is AMEN.

Actually, let me add one more thing: If you are going to do your business online, PLEASE learn how to copy and paste! Its a pretty basic computer skill..

But for some reason I still always search for Google Maps. Odd, I know. The glorious thing about Google chrome and Firefox is that you can just type your search into the address bar. (Better on Firefox because if it knows exactly what you mean it will take you straight there.)
