marks the continuation of my still new micro-posting entitled My Pet
Peeves. My intent is to publish one Peeve every Wednesday for your
viewing pleasure. Hopefully you will find these to be true,
recognizable, amusing, and idenifiable. The Pet Peeves listed here
are my opinion and my opinion only.
questions please email me at:
now Ladies and Gentlemen ... My Pet Peeves:
FOR DUMMIES: I
bought one the other day because I was unable to find--at the
moment that I needed it-- a different publisher on the topic I
wanted. I did find one later. There's much to be said about the
perils of impatience. That aside, perhaps it would have been better
if they called it Books For First Class Schmucks. I have trouble
imagining a world that identifies itself with those titles. Yeah
yeah. Gimme one. I'm an idiot. Here. Certification from the state
avowing to my stupidity. Ta rah rah boom dee yay, I'm just a putz
today . . .
TUNED FOR NEXT WEEK'S PET PEEVE
PAST PET PEEVES
Microsoft, it has been said, is going to place a notice on all
computers using windows 7, on Janaury 15, whether you want it or not,
reminding, urging, even threatening one and all to upgrade to windows
10 or buy a new computer that uses windows 10, the hell with whether
or not you either want or can afford to do so. Never mind the fact
that about 42% of users are still using windows 7 and some are still
using XP. What a financial landfall for Microsoft. Of course, there
is no easy remedy. I, for one, would NEVER, EVER, urge one and all,
numbering I presume to be the millions, to inundate Microsoft with
emails and texts and chats protesting their invasive actions, for
that would be barging into their space much as they barge into yours.
So be told. Do NOT text. Do NOT email. Do NOT inundate their chats.
Do NOT give them back what they gave you. That would not be fair.
Would it? Or would it?
INITIALS. The world, in my mind, has gone mad. Are they conserving on
using letters of the alphabet to spell out whole words? Are they
worried that eventually the allotted usage of letters will run out
and they will then no long be able to write another sentence? They
tell you nothing. They know, so they expect you to know too. The LMN
of the QRS is lying dormant upon a TUV as the WTH writes his script
on an XYZ form. Are they kidding? I need an Initial Dictionary to
figure out what the hell those idiots are saying!
