Monday Morning Vents Times Three


There are issues with today’s technology that over a period of time have become quite bothersome to me.

Each morn I face a mailroom (inbox versus spam) and a 10-minute limit to address both before the computer starts experiencing problems. I wonder how a person is supposed to clear their mailroom (click-read-move to a folder-delete) in record time. Thanks cable provider for your continued great service and high cost.

The constant updates which manage to screw up lots of stuff in place on one’s computer. I didn’t ask for them. I was content with status quo. Then someone thought time for changes and each day a window would appear (I’d cancel it with the ‘x’) which kept shrinking in size until one morning my computer was held hostage for hours without my consent.

Last on my list is ‘plagiarism’. It’s always nice to Google oneself and find work submitted being used by other sites. No, I didn’t give anyone permission to pick and choose from my publishings. 

A fairly private person, I rarely place personal details in my writing or poems. Thank God!
