Over the years I’ve been somewhat of a doormat for people that continueously mis-configure their computers and feel the need to contact me to fix them. I admit, it was mostly my fault for always fixing their problems. I’ve been paid many times over for the work done, and the people are generally pretty happy with the work. But…, they keep coming back. I do not want them to come back. Fixing PC’s will always be an ongoing thing in the day and age, and I want no part of it. I hate them, I wish I never got started with computers. Back in the day, I was all about PC’s - games all the way through fixing hardware and resolving software issues. Hell, I even enjoyed it. Now all I care about is ordering stuff online, MP3’s and message boards, I care for nothing else about PC’s. The only thing I consider fixing is my own stuff and my fathers stuff, THAT’S IT! Now I cringe everytime someone calls wanted something “resolved” and all I want to say is, “I’m just not into it anymore, please leave me alone.” Is that to much to ask? Or maybe I should tell them to open up a ticket? Dammit, how do I resolve this issue? Thanks in advance all.
How do I say NO to helping them with their problems?
