Welcome to Thursday Things, where you might find a rant, a rave, a question, or just about anything else! Let’s scrounge around in the junk drawer of my brain and see what we can find!
Do you ever get tech rage? You know, when a piece of electronic equipment that’s supposed to make your life so much easier simply refuses to work and makes you want to smash it Office Space-style?
I tend to think of myself as a pretty calm person, but my printer did this to me the other morning. I just needed to print out ONE document that only required ONE piece of paper. But I guess the printer had decided it was angry with my computer, because after twenty trips back and forth it still just wouldn’t do it. I finally uninstalled and reinstalled (probably should’ve opted for that earlier) and got my one tiny document printed.
Didn’t help that I got about twenty spam phone calls in the meantime. Gotta love technology.
