Waste of time...

I really hate wasting my time for nothing, especially when there is so much to do and so little time left. Doing something completely stupid makes matters that much more worse! Take this morning for example. I could not get my computer to connect to the Internet anymore. I tried everything, and finally romped around the new room screaming and yelling and cussing all over the place. I was almost on the verge of tossing something out the window, but fortunately I restrained myself. Just barely enough to give myself just that much extra time to spy on a tiny detail which had escaped my attention. That is when I realized that none of the LEDs on my ADSL modem were working anymore. As it turns out, I had inadvertently dislodged the plug of the modem from the wall socket under the table by wiggling my big toe the wrong way. Unplugged means no electricity means no energy means modem dead as a door knob. Get it? So I plugged it back in, and lo and behold everything started working just fine again. About three hours of valuable time gone down the drain! That was a morning which screamed by in a blur and a complete waste of time. What next?!

Computers! They can be so frustrating. I'm glad you found a simple solution to your problem. We have a computer in our household into which we may have donated over 300 useless bucks that could have gone towards the purchase of a new computer. Time will tell if the dang thing continues to act up. Only thing worse is cars.

Don't let it get cha down, it happens to everyone. ;-)

Sorry, but I find this funny because I've done the same thing. :) Hey, at least it wasn't something that would cost money.

Well you might think that it was funny, but when it happened to me, I certainly did not! In retrospect it is always easy to view a so-called bothersome event in a comical way.

Awww, Kiffin *hug* - I can't tell you how many times I've done something like that!
