Evil, new computer devices
Is it just me? Am I getting too old to cope? StepTalkers, I’ve considered myself a bit of a computer guru since, for the last two+ decades, computing has been one of my favourite pastimes. I love nothing better than a good manual and am able to solve most internet problems with determination and those years of practice.
However, last night, while trying to hook up my new TP-link AX55 router, I experienced such a mind-numbing, circular run-around that I ended up in tears of frustration and rage.
After over 5 months of abstinence from alcohol (I’m trying to lose weight and have been successful in dropping 25 pounds to achieve my ideal bulk!), I downed 3 substantial glasses of Cabernet Sauvignon. Didn’t help much. The wine simply made me angrier, louder and nastier to the point where poor Mr. grannyd was slinking about, offering sustenance and sidestepping me like an aged Fred Astaire.
The purveyors of computer hardware present their wares as being so simplistic that a toddler could manage them yet even an experienced computer device specialist like ‘ol grannyd was brought to her metaphorical knees. ARRRRGGGGHHH!
I’m off to bed, whimpering with drunken angst and the awful prospect of confronting the evil TP-link hook-up tomorrow morning. I need comfort…..
