I'm so confused by the computer

 So I haven't been on cm with my computer in forever, just my phone.  But what the hell, let's go retro and get the big boy out tonight.  I'm so lost.  I keep having to hit this button called Shift because the capital letters aren't showing up where they're supposed to.  Punctuation seems to be totally do it yourself.  I mean, I've hit the space bar twice repeatedly, now where the hell is the period?  And when I misspelled a word earlier it STAYED misspelled.  It wasn't even underlined in red!  What is this madness?  I'm so stressed out, I don't think I can do this any more.

 You are in the twilight zone. Just go with it. Unless you see a man dressed as a woman, with a knife>>then RUN!

 Man, woman, frog, bunny - I see anyTHING with a knife, I'm out the door.  Or back in the door if I'm outside.  Or at least in a car with the door locked, after I check the backseat of course.

 My youngest has a shirt that say Keep calm... and Floss!

*see??  The computer doesn't even want to better itself, it's fine with just leaving that typo there.  I don't know if I can keep a relationship with such lazy electronics.

Lol. I was trying to work my dad's phone today and kept trying to make it a touch screen. I was not good at navigation by button pressing. I kept on hitting the contacts icon with my fingertips rather than pressing enter.

 Little guy's first phone wasn't a touch screen.  I never did figure out how to use the damn thing.  I think all that phone could do was make phone calls.  Can you imagine??  He had to hit each number three times to scroll through the alphabet just to be able to text!  Oh, the horror.

*grins*  Welcome to my world lol.  I cant afford data on my phone at all.  February, I cant wait.  I am going to go with a month to month deal and tell sprint to take a hike.  I can get unlimited data for like 40 a  month I think:)  Thats cheaper than my land line was and way cheaper than sprint!

Keep calm and breathe. You'll get through this. Just watch out for the Grammar Police.

I recently purchased a desk top.

I feel like a damn fish out or water.

When I'm at work using the land line, there is nothing more frustrating then keying in the wrong number and having to start all over after hanging up! Where's the back button on those things :-(
