A knuckleheaded computer user that is often referred to in software agreements as the "end user".

The End User is often a idiot who knows nothing about computers beyond the fact that it makes porn and free music readily available.
NetAdmin: OMG, did you see that damn end user using his cd-rom tray as a drink holder.

NetAdmin2: yes, it was a disturbing site.

An ignorant & dissonant state of human existence, where the individual has little knowledge, experience or desire to learn about objective reality or the magnitude of weight the immutable laws of the universe have on everything in existence. Those individuals subject to EUS have their existence completely and unknowingly governed and programmed by socially contrived parameters of “reality”, which in turn render them helpless to navigate “life” in any other state than being an “end user” of products, methods, services created by those employing objective reality. (STEM)
A ubiquitous example is computer technology which has and rendered the world reliant on these devices. Accolades, status, credibility, and power are regularly given to those who simply “use” the devices to document self-jocking, mediocre and un-innovative behavior, which caters only to emotions aligned with the subjectively fabricated parameters of “reality”. This completely overshadows and discounts the tremendous amount of knowledge and understanding which goes into the ideation, creation and production of the devices. This example extends back to mining and refining the materials from the earth, or even further back to how the elements were initially formed. The same can be said about every consumer good in existence. The end user only knows how to Acquire and CONSUME. This is analogous to a monkey picking a banana from a tree and having no knowledge of its origin or subsequent fate once ingested.
End user syndrome ignorance most often times causes the subject to assign hokus-pokery causality to objective reality and natural phenomenon, such as "religion" and "supernatural occurrence".

Some ends users are even touted as “experts” yet are oblivious to anything outside the scope of their parameters of use.

End user syndrome has resulted in an pandemic unparalleled by any other preventable and controllable condition, objective or subjective, in documented history.

Hey Tony, the entire middle of the bell curve has End User Syndrome. It's certainly lonely at the right side of that curve.

It's when you have gotten consent from somebody but that consent was not received in the most moral of circumstances or standarts
If I know that somebody doesnt speak english and I put in page 96 of their repair contract, that they signed before they get their iphone fixed, that if they dont certified mail me 16 years from now, that I will get to marry their firstborn daughter and take all their personal property.

A EULA (End User License Agreement) is a contract a manufacturer makes you sign before they let you buy or lease their product. Products that come with a EULA (pronounced "YOO - lah") are high-tech, big-ticket items: cars, cell phones, appliances, etc. EULAs contain do's & don't's for using a product. Violating the EULA will usually void the warranty.

A EULA is not the same as a TOS (Terms of Service Agreement). A TOS is for a service, not a physical object.

Legally, a EULA gives you permission (gives you a "license") to use the product after you buy it. Presumably, the manufacturer can "revoke" that "permission" at any time, and they will do so by remotely shutting down the product (called "bricking" your product), rendering it inoperable.

The language of a typical EULA includes "hold harmless" clauses to protect the manufacturer from lawsuits. Additionally, you will (usually) be agreeing to let the manufacturer gather personal data about you via the product. This includes your locations, shopping habits, medical information, sexual orientation, etc. A EULA will also usually dictate that you resolve disputes via arbitration (not lawsuits), and stipulate that the arbiter will be hired by the manufacturer (so the arbiter works for the manufacturer, and will do as they say).

EULAs will become more common as modern manufacturers move away from the business model of selling things, and embrace the model of leasing things. That way, "you will own nothing and be happy."
I tries to read the EULA (End User License Agreement) that came with my new cell phone, but it was over 30 pages long, so I just gave up and signed it anyway. I hope that by signing it, I didn't agree to anything too crazy.

End users that have been without dedicated IT support for too long, in an environment that is more complicated than the average end user can be expected to troubleshoot. This situation is why you have people photocopying monitor screens, or everyone in a dept. using the same email password(bonus points if it includes "1234" or "password".
That office is a write-off - Full of Feral End Users, as their IT admin quit 2 years ago. It would be cheaper to rip it all out and start from scratch.
