Malfunctions

You let out a slow, thankful sigh. The past 30 minutes of free time you had, you worked on the computer. And you are proud of yourself for getting so much accomplished.

As you save your work, a malfunction occurs!!! CURSED COMPUTER! Trying to remain calm, you decide to just do it all again. It shouldn't take too long since you already know exactly what to do.

After several more minutes of redoing your work, you sigh out of relief again. As you go to save your work, your computer freezes up... AND THEN SHUTS DOWN!

What is your response likely to be:


a) Fall to the ground in a weeping heap

b) Hit your head against the desk

c) Calmly reboot your computer, holding on to the faint hope that your work can be redeemed

d) Pick your computer up, carry it outside, and THROW IT IN THE STREET, shattering into tiny pieces everywhere

Hi, it's me, Klu the Bear.

I just wanted to say thank you for the nice comments on my blog (Get A Klu). Um, but then I 'scovered that your blog asks lots of questions. So I decided to do some answerin'.

Our 'puter has been dyin' a lot lately. But we didn't throw it in the street yet. We just keep 'vitin' Uncle Kermit to come over and fix it. Us kids like Uncle Kermit a lot, so we don't mind when the 'puter dies.

Sincerely,
Klu the Bear

See! This is the reason I try not to do anything meaningful on my computer. Because it might be lost.

I also stopped eating, because I might throw it up. I stopped having relationships because they might break up.

Gosh, there isn't much for me to do anymore.

I'd curse, feel like pitching it out the window, but would re-boot in hopes that my work is still there.I curse at Blogger a lot for eating comments. The odd time I thought it wasn't printed since the yellow okay wasn't there, but the comment was printed.

I'm all for banging my head. I actually went through this yesterday but luckily what I did type DID go through in the end.

Becky L said...

Well... i guess its about time to answer my own question.

Yes, this has been happening to me a lot lately. Mostly w/ Blogger. The first time, i said inappropriate things to my computer, and i believe i did pound my head on the desk.
