I had a very frustrating thing happen to me recently, something right up there with trying to open up a new CD (what is the deal with that packaging anyway??) or trying to wipe yourself when the toilet paper in a public restroom is dispensing one dismal square at a time.
This recent stressor is likely a less common incident, but one maybe some of you have experienced. I had a new yoga video, all loaded up, ready to go, yoga mat spread out behind me, yoga gear on, and I could not watch/do the damn thing because I could not get to the play option. I was stuck on the DVD's main menu, with five options before me, one of them the blessed play option, with no way to select it -- so I've got the menu items listed on the right side of the screen, Rajashree Choudhury doing a standing bow pose over and over and over and over on the left side, and the same, now completely irritating introductory Indian music playing a nonstop loop. The remote simply refused to function.
Jesus, was it even the right one? A good question, since I have five remotes, two of which I know what they operate, three of which ended up here after the divorce, division of belongings, and move, so which may well belong to electronics now housed in my ex husband's house.
It is the same brand as the DVD player though, and it does pause the DVD if I hit pause, but that's ALL it does, nothing more. Aargh.
So here's my ten words for this Tuesday.
Why can't things just fucking work they way they should?
