Read. The. Fucking. Manual.

Popular saying amoungst engineers

A coomon miscoception is that the word originated from the internet. This word however has been around as long as there have been engineers, or at least as long as there have been electrical apliances.

Idiot: How do I install Windows?

Engineer: RTFM.

Idiot: Whaaa?

Engineer: RTFM!!! It's right there in the Box!!!

Idiot: All I see is the manual, where's the RTFM?

Engineer: RAGE!!!

RTFM is Internet-speak for "Repeat the first message". It is used when the message did not transfer over the Internet properly. If someone tells you to RTFM, be patient with them, and copy-and-paste your original message several times. Also, typing the message with capslock on will improve the chances that it will get through (similar to yelling at a brick wall, telephone, or foreigner).
