So many things have complicated and outright bad interfaces (and have for so long) that people come in with the expectation that they're going to be difficult to use. They have essentially been trained to think that tech is going to be difficult to use and that they're going to struggle with it.

Of course, that only goes so far. If they're not willing to spend thirty seconds learning something as simple as your scenario, it's on them.

Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
