NOT ROCKET SCIENCE: Young Sydney marketing executive Jack Whitmore was today called into his boss’s plush harbour-view office to show him how to connect his new iPad to Wi-Fi.
“It’s not the first time,” says Whitmore, who spends more than half his income on rent and student loans.
“I had to show him the exact same thing three times last week.”
Today his boss, a 60 year old earning almost five times more than Whitmore, was not completely oblivious to the comedic nature of the situation.
“Jack, you deserve a raise!” he said, before bursting into a fit of laughter. “Not likely given the impending recession haha”
“Back in my day we didn’t have all this complex technology. I didn’t even know what Wi-Fi was until last month. To be honest, I still don’t understand it.”
Then, only a few minutes later, Jack Whitmore was summoned back to his bosses office to show him how to unmute himself on Zoom.
“And tonight I have to go to my dad’s place to show him how to attach a file to an email.”
