Surprise! Most People Yell At Their Computers [POLL]
Seriously? There had to be a study about this? Someone actually was paid to find out how people treat their computers. The shock to me is that only 1 in 3 people admitted to yelling at their computer. Please! Every single person I know has done that at least one time.
This was part of a much bigger survey about what annoys people the most. Of course the slow computer was number one. It was like that for me this morning. All I wanted was to read my email, but did my computer cooperate? No. It had to freeze up. So, I called it stupid and said "come on!" It didn't help, but I felt better.
I learned a long time ago that hitting a computer only hurts my hand.
