Me, I usually go with "Flail a lot, complain, and make jokes about how all the choices suck"

Imagine if, when you first learned how to type, you learned Dvorak. And then you went out into the world and they gave you an old QWERTY typewriter to use.

What do you do?

  • Learn QWERTY, or
  • Build something onto the typewriter that makes it so you can type your way and it'll come out right, which you have no idea how to do yet, or
  • Build a whole new typewriter, which you also don't know how to do?
