Same. Your sister sounds better than my mother though. She gives absolutely no information, then gets angry when I start asking for symptoms. Apparently "It doesn't work" should be enough to diagnose any issue.

That's what my step-dad and grandparents can be like too, So it doesn't really help the situation very much..

"I click the thing and nothing happens."

"An error message comes up."

My favorite:
"The web page doesn't load."

Yeah exactly things like that, Then you would ask them what the message said and they wouldn't be able to remember..

I wouldn't even get that. Seriously, the only thing I can ever get is "It's not working" One time I kept asking for the url of some website she was having issues with and all I could ever get was "It's on the internet." Then she got all mad because I said that was the equivalent of telling me to go to somewhere with no information besides "it's on earth."

I fixed one of my desk clerks laptop the other day. All I got out of her was it's running so slow. I ran my toolbox and it was hopeless. Told her to get new copy of the OS (win7) and I'd fix it. Wiped the drive and got office 2010 stater on it. She's all happy now. So is the laptop. She's an end user. A tech's worst nightmare...

Yeah it's hard explaining to someone who isn't very computer literate like You and I are, You are used to explaining in the way that you always do when talking about computer and when you ask them they are like what the hell..

That's normal Wait until / if you get asked for help with programming homework...!
