Friday Conclusion

Sometimes when I'm sitting at the computer I notice little pop-ups that flash on the screen saying something like YOUR THINGY IS ABOUT TO EXPIRE, YOU FOOL! or YOUR LAST BACK-UP FAILED, RETARD! and I must admit that, although I know these a-holes are vital, I find them to be incredibly annoying. I guess I'm just a big dope when it comes to the computer. Like my dad was when the remote wouldn't work. NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

Was that one of those little warnings about the pending hard drive explosion? I think, before clicking it away. GO ON, GIT. But after they persist, unrelentingly, I start to have 1950's husband thoughts like GET OFFA MY BACK ALREADY! or CAN'T A PERSON HAVE A MOMENT OF PEACE AROUND HERE FOR CRYIN OUT LOUD?! Sometimes I even say out loud: JEEEEZZ!

Which brings me to my point and my conclusion:

WHEN IT COMES TO MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY COMPUTER, THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW TO BE IS LIKE RALPH KRAMDEN.

You could always take the edge off with some Vegameatavitamin.

Or sometimes I'm like Cousin It.

I wish you worked where I worked. None of the users I support are anything like Ralph Kramden, which would be exciting and new. Like the Love Boat.

At first it would be exciting and new but eventually you'd just answer the Support Phone "Hello, how can I prove that it's your fault?"

Great one! I'm totally with you on this. But I'd be more of a Barney Miller, problem-solver, mediator-type. Not too exciting, but that's me in a nutshell...
