Computers vs. Kids

I am convinced, after this morning more than ever, that computers are worse spoiled brats that children sometimes are.

Mine is acting like the consummate whiny baby today. So I will let it have its tantrum, shut it down, and let it get over itself.

Like I used to tell the kids, "Put on your big kid pants and deal with it!"

I wonder what the equivalent to big kid pants is for a computer?

  1. Hello! My computer has been giving me fits also AND my tv remote control got stepped on by one of the cats and it's weird too! It should be an interesting weekend! Take care and enjoy.

  2. Oh, be nice to your computer -- they're very sensitive. Remember, computers don't get even, they get ERROR FILE NOT FOUND.


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
