Family is so much better than table flipping.
Rage Quit - To stop playing a game out of an anger towards an event that transpired within the game.
So today my morning was awful - all I wanted to do was rage quit by table flipping my actual computer desk. I spent all morning trying to find an online selling solution that worked for me. You'd think that would be easy...since all I am selling are simple, homemade cards with cute sayings on them. BUT NOOOO....the morning is gone and I have accomplished NOTHING! Well, that's not true. I managed to wear several keys down to stubs on my keyboard and speak to many nice, but unhelpful customer service people. All this time, other important art got neglected. I will admit that all I was thinking was MY TIME IS WORTH SO MUCH MORE THAN THIS!
So there I was, in this viscous cycle of having too many options - all of them needing more information from me than I had to give...so then I'd have to go research the research.... GAH. I have accomplished nothing!
My mom came home and bless her soul, she listened to all my rantings without complaint. Basically I table flipped all over her, and she just took it (which spared my actual computer desk a lot of pain). Then she offered to help, even though I know she despises computer work...and we sat down to lunch, where she admitted that she had been really frustrated yesterday too. With shame, I realized I had not listened to her, or helped to carry her frustration like she mine.
Just like that, the urge to table-flip was gone. With just a simple act of kindness, I was no longer seeing red and wishing death upon the world.
What am I saying? Hmmm...
1 - Everyone has rage quit/table flip days.
2 - Although Lord Death is awesome, table flipping does not make one feel better (if you get that ref, props to you!).
3 - Family can be a priceless example of this verse: "Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones." Here is a picture of my patient mom with her 3 crazy girls...
I guess this day might have been productive after all.
