Witless idiots

Not just instructions - pop ups too. It still mystifies me how some people can override the brain's unfaulting habit of automatically turning jumbled shapes into words without any conscious effort - but only when those jumbled shapes are presented in a little rectangle on a screen

"Error message? Yeah something popped up but dunno what it said - I just hit 'Cancel'. So why doesn't it work?"
