I take pride in helping people with their tech stuff by walking them through the process, making them complete the steps so they can learn how.
Too many times I get feeling the person is only pretending to understand, as I'm basically doing it for them, and they don't feel it's something they will be doing again any time soon. Until the next time?
I've learned myself that "Can you show me how?" really means "Will you do it for me while I pretend to care?"
