Female solidarity ... I'm not sure the young woman on the cable company help desk is familiar with the concept.
When I told her that my television kept on telling me that it had no signal she asked me if I had plugged the router in.
Just how old does she think I am? I should have asked her why the television would tell me that it had no no signal but did still have pretty coloured lights, but I might not have understood the the answer .
Anyway I'm obviously elderly and gaga . The young man on the help desk was much more flattering but I remember teaching him to count , which he's probably found useful .
But of course it could be her ageism ... or my incompetence ...
