Often when confronted with something that requires just a little bit of learning, some people think it's easier (and appropriate) to just ask me to do that for them instead.

I have written a short explanation on how to use youtube-dl for a friend. In response I get a request to "please download the video and upload it somewhere for me, I don't have time to learn it."

Yet somehow I did have time to write the instructions for them; and they think I have time to do it for them.



All this stems from this culture of mindless relationship with technology; as if things that require being aware and thinking are by definition broken.
