I am exceedingly irascible today, though surprisingly, not due to any political upheavals, liberal outpourings, nor tinfoilhatted law proposals. Gwmoore simply had a bad weekend (LOL).
My Irascibility began with the malfunction of my brand new radio control computer, which I discovered, had no sound card output, and gwmoore was forced to lug same back to the 'puter store this AM... gwmoore's irascibility was further stoked by the fuel of having to deal with "late 20's early '30's total computer geek" who was NOT interested in the aforementioned gwmoore's credentials, nor the USE to which he was putting the "custom designed" computer. Yes, it's fixed (I guess) but said geek was on phone to gwmoore approx 1845 (store closes at 1900) tells gwmoore "jumpers were misconfigured" and hangs in silence, as if the writer did something obscene. I informed geek that " that's the way it was, etc etc and made attempt to explain 'puters use and why 2 sound cards are needed calling one "primary" and one "secondary". Geek states "there aren't any "primary and secondary sound, uh, uh sir (had real problem with sir), they are just sound cards". Gwmoore refrained from reading riot act, threatening Capt's mast, quoting CV and resume to geek, teeth were gritted, thoughts of gratuitous violence were entertained, and promptly discarded ;-)....... ^^%%$$%%##^&&&***(((( Geeks!!!!!! Doesn't he KNOW he's talking to an ENGINEER!!!!! (well, you get the picture LOL)..
Ok, I am calming down, and it IS a great computer store, but I wanted to grill said geek about his political leanings and his screen name and tagline at DU, but also refrained, neither time, place, nor correct behavior ;-) Anyhow, is it any wonder that I am irascible???? I think not!!
Second reason for irascibility. The "cold [allergy?] from hell" has descended upon my entire being. Since I feel crummy, I will behave as irascible as I desire in the classroom today, thank you.. I will take cold medicine and become "stuned", as if with a "beeber like device".. I will cause disruptions with my irascibility.... I will also close out now, and quit babbling on and on and on ROTFL.......
Greg (so irascible, he could chew through solid concrete)
my fave part LOL!!!
dang, i better give you a grade or you might bite MY head off!! A++++! ; )
I'm still trying to figure out the two sound cards thing... I'm an Aggie but not an engineer. ;)
