Whenever I get a comment like "Click on the yellow x at the top
of the screen," I say..."Do me a favor turn your screen off. Is

By the way, that would be an entirely appropriate response.
If you're on the help desk for individuals who are blind or
visually impaired, the use of phrases that include, "see" in the

Dope slaps when people are being dopes are A-OK, and if you have
someone who was accidentally being a dope, which happens more
often than one might think, their response is generally a prompt
apology. They recognize they've been inappropriate, even if that
was the result of an accidental lapse. Defending the indefensible
is never a good idea.
