You made me laugh! :D
Unfortunately, when I was doing service i often encountered minor problems turned into post-tornado pictures...
I guess 75% of the questions, appear in real life as "Major trouble".
Years ago, when I first encountered the meaning of RTFM, I laughed. Then I started providing computer service and the laughing, went away...
It's sad, but nevertheless, true...
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”― Edmund Burke;
