Today, I plugged a mouse USB dongle into the back of a computer. As usual, it took three tries to find the right direction. That’s the norm.
But it shouldn’t be. Logically speaking, a USB plug has only two sides, so it should take no more than two tries to get the right direction. The Pervis webcomic understands what’s really going on here. The USB socket itself is reluctant to cooperate. A persuasion tool of your preferred caliber may provide suitable encouragement. Try it and you’ll need only one attempt to get the plug in straight. The socket will prove understanding.
