I once had a wise old friend who was a computer programmer, (from a time before the words computer and programmer existed in a dictionary,) who gave me one piece of sage advice I have tried to live by, and on the times I’ve failed have discovered it to be true.
“Never let a computer, or a printer, know that you are in a rush or you want to go home.”
Then today, a random link, from a random link, from a random link, found me discovering that there is actually a word for it…
The seemingly spiteful behavior shown by inanimate objects
