A “Flashing 12” is a person with no technical inclinations' inept in all things technological. The name comes from the fact that when you walk into their house their VCR is Flashing 12:00, because they can not figure out how to program it.
I could have got a lot more done at work today but that flashing 12 from the finance dept kept interupting me with silly questions about operating her iPod.
A person who is computer, or technologically illiterate. Named after their alarm clock, which their are too stupid to reset. therefore, it is always "Flashing 12"
I had to walk that stupid flashing 12 through the whole damn process.
