I just about had it yesterday. And I am not even that ashamed to admit it. For a span of about 15 minutes I lost all vestige of my southern Christian lady exterior and gave my computer a dressing down that would make a sailor blush clear to the tops of his ears.
Thankfully, the good Lord had mercy on me and I was alone for this little melt down of propriety. I do take solace in the fact that I am not alone in my ire.
Millions of people everywhere have this sort of trouble with their computers so I really shouldn't feel like the technology gods picked me to be their Homer.
Maybe you can relate, I am minding my own business, working diligently on something, feeling good about whats going on and thinking about whats left in my day to accomplish when-wham! I am faced with the eerie silence of a complete and utterly BLANK screen. For two seconds I am dumb to what has happened. Surely I am not looking at a Blank screen.
No way, I was just typing.and...wait...wait...OH MY GAWD, what have I done?! Where is everything? Calm down..Okay...okay...what did you do? Hit a button? Oh...yes..wait. Hit Command Z,....yes now....wait for it...nothing. HOLY MOTHER OF BABY JESUS....why isn't command Z working? This isn't fair!
I just....I just spent 45 minutes of my morning doing that and now it's gone...that means it will at least take me that long to re-do it. ......But I have so much else to do! I wasn't even technically supposed to be on this computer, I just sat down and started to peck away and it was getting good so I started to get invested in it and now this horrid, horrible, wretched, computer has lost it and what am I going to do now!?
Cry. That is the logical thing to do because I can't fix it and I am just going to sit here and cry.
So About 10 minutes later, there I was, pecking away at what I was working on and trying to remember what I had written in the first place. All the while envisioning ways I could vent my frustrations on the evil computer inhabiting my desk.
I begrudgingly admitted to myself that the disappearance was probably my fault. Most likely I hit a key or something on accident to cause the vanishing act and brought this terrible awful on myself. Well that's just great. I can tell you one thing, I will not be telling my sweetheart about it because he probably knows exactly what I did and he probably could have gotten it back with a few clicks, Showoff. Darn it.
So well, maybe it isn't my computers fault. I really shouldn't be so mean to it after all, it's brought me such joy over these last few months. The Facebook browsing, the blogging, the 3. am Wattpad sessions....yes its my fault computer, I am so sorry!
*Wait! This Just in! Apparently it was my browser. According to my nerd (it's an endearment people!), everything on blogger works perfectly on the Goggle Chrome browser-because Google owns Chrome and Google owns Blogger....so Its not me and its not my computer, ITS A CONSPIRACY BY GOGGLE TO TURN MY WHOLE TECHNOLOGICAL EXPERIENCE INTO ONE DOMINATED BY GOOGLE!
Whew. I knew it wasn't me. Technology can bite me.
