Daily Prompt: Mad as a Hatter

Tell us about a time when you flew into a rage. What is it that made you so incredibly angry?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us RAGE.

I wonder if that was the day when I flew such a tantrum that even the skies came out in sympathy. Do I fly into rages? Now and again, like all of us but I am not doing a general confessional here and explaining all the gory details, like when I decided to kill the neighbour, but changed my mind, he was not worth the trouble.

I was going to blow my school up when I was a kid, but the government did it for me a few years later, by demolishing the building. I was thinking about putting poison into my boss’s tea in the office, but he only drunk coffee. Stabbing a salesman in a shop was another idea I had, but I suppose he was only doing his job and had a tiresome day.

We all have days like that. Let us be honest, everyone here must have had a moment where they wish Bill Gates had never been born. When windows develops a mind of its own, perhaps your computer shows the screen of death. I had that once and read that it is might be an Acer complaint. Yes, I have an Acer and up to now have not felt the urge to throw it out of the window. However, after a restart the death screen had thought twice and was again alive. Did I stay cool, of course I did, although my stomach did a few leaps and bounds.

Another memorable occasion with my Acer was when my screen turned 90° in one direction. I had to turn my head at a 90° angle to be able to read it. It was combined with putting the © sign on my photos and I hit the wrong key. I did get a stiff neck trying to read the instructions in Internet about what to do. Eventually Mr. Swiss helped me out by looking on his computer. All it needed was the Alt key together with the upwards arrow and everything was back in its place. There is a solution for everything.

I believe there have even been fights originating over computer problems, resulting in injuries. I used to be a working woman, but I was always cool. I had to be, because of the customers. Did they know I was knitting little dolls with their name embroidered on them, where I would stick pins in them during the evening, hoping that the customers would disappear: even that did not work.

Actually I was surprised at this prompt today. I know I am not in the church club, but it is Christmas, like the time of good will to all men and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, but Daily Prompt decided it should be livened up with some exciting blogs about how to rid the world of people that annoy you. On this peaceful and happy note I can only say it is never as bad as you think. Even Rasputin the mad monk did not die straight away. He was poisoned, shot and beaten and eventually drowned before he decided to go. Someone in Russia must have got incredibly angry about Rasputin – Death of Gregory Rasputin

By the way I did get a little annoyed today when writing this blog. I visited others which have also blogged on this subject and read somewhere on a blog that the person will not be visiting anyone that has snow falling on their blog pages. Ok, that is her problem. I like my snow flakes, it is only once a year, and I do not stare at my prize winning suspicious blogs for longer than a few minutes, so it does not bother me. In any case it will not annoy this person me writing this, because she refuses to read what I write in any case (because of the snow).

  3. Hahaha…I love my snow.
    Technology, especially computers, I leave the fancy stuff and troubles for my husband. I can “lose it” in a hot minute when it comes to that.

  6. Now really, how many people know the story of Rasputin? THERE was a man who really didn’t want to die. They had to keep killing him. The blue screen of death is almost always fixable. It’s that black screen with white text that appears about one nanosecond before your hard drive croaks that means “Boy, I sure hope I’ve got a recent backup of my stuff.” With luck, you’ll never SEE that one. Even I’ve only seen it once and by the time I finished reading it (it said something to the effect of “save everything now because you’re going down in flames”), it was too late. Oops. So now I have a real-time back up always running, but probably if I really need it, it will turn out to absolutely useless. Computers. Can’t live with them. Can’t live without them.

    • The Acer black screen is wordless but not silent. Your computer is still functioning, you hear the mouse movements, you just see nothing. It is just black with no letters. In my case it only needed a new loading, but I have heard of others where it did not work anymore. I have all my photos on a stick, on another computer, on an extermal hard disk and in Flickr. I also have all my blogs on a stick, my life is one big backup., although I only have one Mr. Swiss.
