Imagine being a mechanic and have a car owner nervously stand over you asking over and over if you're sure, I mean 100% sure that changing your radio presets won't make the gas tank explode and you're in the ballpark.

"I demand you fix this problem I'm having without touching or doing anything because I'm afraid if this one Window is closed it will never come back ever" is a thing we have to deal with.
I suspect that a lot of people aren't scared of computers, really. They just *think* they are.

And we now have a generation of grown-ass people who have had computers for more of their lives than not, who still profess an absurd degree of computer incompetence.
