Tech Fails, Not For the Faint-Hearted, Lol
You can’t really hold it against somebody, if they are not savvy with technology. One could argue that you can’t hold it against them even if they don’t have any common sense – lol. (But a person of logic would try to avoid the latter).
Anyway, all people make mistakes. Dumb mistakes, some times. And today we are going to take a look at the 29 craziest entries from the subreddit techsupportgore. We are going to take a look at cringy, WTF, dumb mistakes from people who aren’t particulary tech savvy. And if, while strolling below , through these entries, the “common sense” thing comes back to your mind, well we won’t judge.
Enjoy – live and learn!
