In Which Technology Foils The Effect.

Noted this morning: The wimpy little beep heard when an angry person fumbles for and then pokes the "off" button on the cordless phone really doesn't deliver the same message as the old-fashioned method of slamming the phone back into the holder. It's very anticlimactic.

And flipping the bird to the phone was probably pretty ineffective too, huh?

It's fortunate that I can laugh at myself.

I know. But from what I can tell, people are still pretty pissed off that you hung up on them. Therein lies some beauty, huh? huh?

i'm a big fan of ineffective bird flipping. and it makes me laugh at myself every single time.

ok, does it make me need anger management that I will chuck the phone at an unsuspecting wall, just for the satisfying crash?
Yes?
ok.

Perhaps we should all keep a Princess phone in the corner for those times when only a slam will do?

Maybe it's time to return to an age of written correspondence?

I'm a practitioner of the unseen flip off. The computer screen from time to time. Just under the line of vision in the car. Yeah, I'm full of fire in my imagination!
