Installing A New Printer

(Simplified)

1) Open box, remove installation manual (yes, despite the stereotype of men simply bypassing this step - I did indeed follow those wise guidelines...)

2) Take your time, follow each step carefully, despite your eagerness to run test print sequence. Even the steps that are clearly written for village idiots.

3) Finally, arrive at stage where you are told the magical way that you will be able to connect to the wireless feature. Take your time, it is not unusual to have to try this several times, with no success.

4) After calling wife downstairs to help, continue to try steps clearly WRITTEN by a village idiot...

5) Weep for 20 minutes in corner, but even that will not help activate wireless printing - just facilitate sogginess of T-shirt.

6) After "just walking away" for 30 minutes, try one last time to connect printer to network. Sadly, shouted four-letter expletives don't assist connection either...

7) Beer.

8) Locate Help number, which naturally is closed until Monday. Yearn for days of rock and chisel.

Trying again after I drive the missus to work...

AAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!

Later....

Oh dear. Oh boy. Oh yes. Uh huh. Yes indeed. Whenever a new piece of equipment, electronics, etc enter this house, I brace myself. I know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that big grin of one Mr. That Dan Guy, with his new prize proudly tucked under his arm, will turn into one angry, frustrated tormented sneer. Brace yourself, brace yourself.

Installing a printer you are not familiar with can be confusing to configure. That’s one reason there are service providers that include an installation service as well, so as to avoid these circumstances. Anyway, even if it was challenging, I still hope it ended well, and that your printer has been successfully installed. Cheers!
