Children DO have their uses

An entirely child free, husband free, productive work day today.

Ah, I do love Thursday’s. Ish. I get to the end of the day and feel as though I’ve acheived something.

Like, inventing new swear words and phrases to use on the technology that refuses to work on the best day I have to acheive a heap of work using said technology.

I’m not sure if it’s just me or not, but am somewhat suspicious of the Troubleshooting guide for my printer that suggests I “unplug it, leave it for 10 seconds and plug it back in”.

I mean, I do that anyway. Besides, we all know that the troubleshooting suggested in the guides is useless and won’t work. How can we get our machinery to work if what it says in the guide, we are doing anyway???

For the record, it doesn’t work.

Which is where my kids and their uses come in. I’m not sure if it’s them being boys or just being kids in general. What they have given me is a whole new realm of profanity that I can use on the non-working technology in my office:

arse head

poo face

poo bum

snot head, or the alternative, snot face

poo poo head

wee bum

arse face

… just to name a few. NONE of which are in the troubleshooting manual, either on- or offline.

None of which made the technology cooperate either, but at least it provided some variety for they day.
