I HATE my computer!!!!! Is it weird to have an abnormal hatred towards an inanimate object? If any of you saw the movie Office Space they take a baseball bat and stomp and beat the crap out of the office photocopier…today my computer is breathing a sigh of relief I don’t own a baseball bat…YES…it was SOOOOO close!
Yes today was my shipping deadline. Yes I had to make updates and changes to a PDF catalog and Word file, burn Cd’s, collate and package all flyers and press kits. Yes my computer froze repeatedly between programs and then simply would not shut off. Yes after waiting staring at the frozen screen for 30 agonizing minutes the only way it would turn off was to cut the electricity. Yes the UPS man showed up 30 minutes early. Yes the dog was frantic, the bird was making noise, the boxes weren’t ready, it was taking WAY too long to try to burn Cd’s for the darn press kits and yes I thought I was going to blow up…just sitting there urging…willing even begging my computer "please, please I promise to defrag you every week…I’ll upgrade your RAM…I’ll be so nice if you’d just GO FASTER!!!!! move your BUTT!!!!!! I have a DEADLINE you stupid piece of %$^&#**!!!!!
Yes I told the UPS man to go away and come back later. Yes I wanted to eat a whole chocolate bar not the regular kind, the kind you buy in the baking aisle at the grocery store that looks like it could feed a small country, and then maybe wash it down with a full bag of family size chips and a container of full fat dip. Yes I wanted to give up and just collapse in front of the TV and watch What Not To Wear. Yes it’s 6 pm and I haven’t had a shower, brushed my teeth or run a comb through my hair.
Yes this is the freedom of having your own business. You can be your own "yes man".
