My Least Favorite Words in the English Language

"Our computer system is down," which is usually code for "we can't do what you need us to do because we're paralyzed with out the holy, all powerful computer" and "you can't be mad at us, because it's the computer's fault."

These words just make me want to slap people into the ground. FUCK YOU and your computer system. Honestly, what the fuck did we do before computers? Did we get work done? For fuck's sake. UGH.

I have heard that phrase entirely too much in the last few days.

  1. Amen! That and power outages just make people lose their minds when 'systems are down.' I can still count back change without a cash register computer and often have to assist cashiers when they mis-enter the amount their given. Talk about a clueless panicky stare at the register, lol! (Good Ole Mrs. Carroll wouldn't let anyone work in Carroll's without learning how to count back change without the help of a register or calculator).
