Got a call from a friends mother (97, and generally OK on a computer - she can do 1 sheet booklets in Word, which makes her a wizard in my book): she can't print.

OK, go over to see her1. And it's pretty obvious: there are 183 documents in the print queue, but the first one wants a special paper size and the printer needs confirmation that it's loaded. Empty the print queue,2 confirm the paper tray,3 print a document.

I like simple problems!

1 Because I've played the "fix it over the telephone" game with her before and it's quicker to jump in the car
2 Because they are all duplicates on the "Maybe it'll work this time" theory
3 Because she never reads the display on the printer
