My foster parents are already conditioned to close any pop-ups (partially) because of this. Whenever they ask me for help with a computer issue, they instinctively close/accept a pop up right as it opens, even when it describes what the problem is. So I’m like “wait, what did that pop-up say?” and my foster father is like “…I don’t know? Why?”
