Okay, today has just been one of those days where nothing works right. This seems to be a constant with me and all my various devices. But, it’s Friday and as such it just shouldn’t be allowed to happen! Monday’s are reserved as the sucky days and true to form – they usually are just that – sucky.
I found funny pictures to describe what today’s been like and I linked to them below for your viewing pleasure. It paints a story without me having to explain too much.
I Lost the Control – what started it all. I’m a control freak. Losing control is never a fun time in this house or to be around me. I do however own it.
When My Internet Is Going Slow – what further made everything else annoying! When my Internet is slow and lagging my impatience starts to boil over to the surface. There is nothing more frustrating than waiting on pages to load it’s what multitasking is all about or supposed to be about when done correctly.
Where Is My Happy Face – trying to recover from the aggravation. Usually, caffeine is involved in finding my happy face. More than likely it will do the trick and get me back to the land of the living again.
People tend to make fun of me for checking my BlackBerry constantly and when my laptop acts up. These people clearly don’t work online or they would totally get it. My laptop is my vehicle, without it, I can’t get to work. Is it really that hard to understand? Not so much. Not to me anyway. That said, clearly I need more patience but when you are simultaneously working on several things and have many windows open, when the Internet is slow it’s enough to drive this girl crazy. And that is pretty much on a daily basis so imagine what my brain feels like.
To take this post one step further not only have my devices been haywire, my car has been too. First I bought a transmitter so that I could play Zune through my car speakers. Naturally it didn’t work after several times of trying to get it too cooperate. Finally it did work but I just pulled up to a friend’s house for wine o’clock and so I left it plugged in. Later that night my car wouldn’t start. A very long and stressful story later my car wouldn’t start. Only at the time I didn’t realize it was the battery and was far more panicked. In this situation I managed some luck, the battery was TWO days from the expiration expiring so I got it FREE. But the very point here is that everything gives me a hard time, not just the kids, also my gadgets and vehicle. The very thought of not having a vehicle induces immediate panic, because that relates to my freedom and control and all that other happy stuff. Which ties into all my technological issues.
I fear I may be sharing just a little too much of my crazy but then I can’t be the only geek that has these problems. Someone, anyone, has to be able to relate to this kind of chaos. I know I can’t be that special. Where’s Dr. Sheldon Cooper when you need him? Oh wait, he actually is smart and doesn’t pretend to be on the Internet. And, I’m not even sure I’m managing to successfully pull that off. Oh, who am I kidding, I #fail.
