    That I can sort of understand, I tend to be much better at reading maps than everyone around me.

    What bugged me in Prague is that they wouldn't even stop to point on the map where I was, which would have been plenty for me to figure the rest.

    Brag? I travel 300 km every single Friday to see my girl, and then get up at 5:30 to travel 300 km in the opposite direction to work. Every weekend is a city trip to me.

    It's so easy to have other people do the work for you, even if it'd been faster to do it yourself.

    - Help my computer hangs!!!
    *error message with only an "OK" button and a generic failure warning*
    - what would you think I'd recommend, with only 1 button on the screen and why would you call me for that?
    - don't be so rude
    - don't be so lazy

    Last time my father asked me to help with such pointless questions. I do want to help him with serious stuff, but he's the one who learned me to at least try before asking...

    No matter what you post, you come off as a complete *******. I have much to learn from you.

    When you're broke in GW2 I will not give you gold, but I will give you tips on earning it. Is that rude or is that normal? The same applies to this situation yet you seem to believe I'm a string of asterisks because of it. I do not know whether I should take that as a compliment or an insult, because being honest without compromise nor sugarcoating is a very good thing in real life, when working with people who can take honest criticism.

    People who can't take honest criticism have no place in my life, since they're a burden. This leaves me with a handful of friends that really respect me, and are equally rude/honest to me when I got something to learn. I prefer that to hundreds of shallow friends who'll drop me when I really need them. So yea... my honest style scares away the people I don't want in my life and attract people I respect. That's a good thing imho.

    As for my father, nowadays he tries before asking my help, which leaves both of us better of. While the story may sound rude, it's actually a tale of learning, honesty, respect.

    I just say what I mean. It's up to you how to receive it.
