As the copy machine blinked "Error. Turn off and restart," this morning, I thought to myself, "Damn. I wish I had had this message before I got out of bed."

And seriously, wouldn't it be nice if on the days that freezing rain fell making your work commute especially dangerous; the days that you get to work only to find that your "office" was rearranged without your knowledge, therefore making it very difficult for you to find anything; the days that none of your communications were connecting; the days that your colleagues decided not to support you; the days your clients were especially (and self righteously)demanding; the days the copier flashed an error message during the only time you could make copies: TODAY, in other words.. Wouldn't it be nice if you could have that message earlier when you were in bed, so that you knew to just roll over and hit the 'restart' button.

Yeah.

That would be nice.

I frickin' love this idea. Especially on a day like today.

Driving to work, my windshield was hit by a huge bolt.

It made a huge divot that eventually spread into a HUGE crack across my windshield by the time I got to work.

Nice.

Ginger said...

Yeah, Jen. It rocked. The way that a rock hit my winshield and cracked it across the front.

Oh hi Anne! What? we both have huge cracks in our windshields? Sigh.

Sorry. I know how it feels!

Amy said...

I think we all need this button. Then maybe people would just be a bit happier.

Christine said...

Yeah. I need a restart button. A really big, really effective, really retroactive one.

In the meantime, it's good to know that the crack in my windshield apparently makes me part of the cool kids club. Aw yeah.
