Just work dang it!
When I use something, I expect it to work. I know the saying that computers are only as smart as their users but I totally disagree. If this were the case, mine wouldn't even know how to boot itself up after I hit the 'on' button. I'd just get a blank screen with the words, "duh" written across it and an occasional pile of drool seeping out onto the keyboard.
I don't know if it is just my little blogger.com world but mine is being terribly inept! When I try to comment on other blogs I am having to log in every stinking time! And then, when I type my password it never takes it the first time. I have to re-type my password again. And somewhere in bloggie.com world some oompa loompa is laughing his orange head off that he's made me do it again. "Watch this, Rachel's logging on. Let's see how many times we can get her to re-type her password today!" Followed by a high pitched sick giggle.
Twisted oompa loompa number two sees deranged oompa loompa number one having such a blast messing with Rachel he decides to see how tight he can wind Rachel's undies by only letting her download three photos TOPS at a time on her blog. He knows Rachel will read that she can download five but that number is just to see if she'll try time and time again to download five photos only to have them swiped away to oompalands overloaded landfill/dump.
When I use something, I expect it to work! This goes with anything. Cars, appliances, computers.... and when it doesn't....... well I just get crabby! And I want to throw things at the offensive not working ____________ (insert name of not working whatever), and I call it all sorts of barbed names but here's the real kicker! Oompa Loompa land is a one way mirror type place I've decided. They dish it out and I receive it and I get all ticked. I dish it back and it doesn't do a blasted thing! Nothing changes. They just keep dishing. Internet down? Who cares? Chief Oompa doesn't. I kick and scream and hit refresh. Nothing.
So I throw my temper tantrum and get all worked up and finally foaming at the mouth I'm resigned to the fact that I am getting no where and the only one that is being affected is myself as my blood pressure goes through the roof.
There's a lesson here.......but I'm choosing to walk to the other side of the warped mirror and ignore it.
