Stupid people

Why must there be so many stupid people? Why must they work with me? To wit:

In addition to the changes notes above, we have also experienced problems in both forms wit the Acrobat program (version 5.0) freezing on us while typing on the forms. The problem occurs anytime a person presses "enter" and then "tab." So, if I press enter to creat a check mark on a button and then tab to the next field, the program gives this error message:
"AcroRd32.exe has generated errors and will be close by Windows.
You will need to restart the program.
An error log is being created."

This is in response to a PDF form that I created for one of our components. It has many, many fields to be filled in. So in addition to creating this form, it should also be my job to debug and fix Adobe's Acrobat Reader. Why is it that people don't realize what an application error is, and that it's a problem for the programmer to fix?

  1. Because you created the form that crashed Adobe Acrobat. It's not stupid, just deductive reasoning.

    Why can they open all their other PDFs, but not yours? It must be your fault!
