Trivial, and amusing...but karma is a nasty lady and she's punched me square in the face.
My wife isn't exactly technologically savvy. My mother-in-law is technologically comatose. I've been training people on our database system at work all week, and spent the last half-hour having a good laugh listening to my wife trying to talk her mom through extracting a .zip file. I even started texting my brother about how great this little sideshow is.
I was just informed that we'd be making the drive over to her house to handle it myself.
Serves me right.
