I admit to shouting f**k the bl**ding heap of metal & plastic, or some such, clench my fists, & carry on, if anything happens that I can't put right, you can bet your bottom dollar that's it's the weekend, & I can't get someone to come & fix it, & no, I have no friends that live locally that can help, in my village, folks are 60 & over, & know nothing about computers, very frustrating!
What an admission!!, although I do only use this sort of language within the privacy of my home, & I live alone, but even then I feel guilty.

When you get mad, just go exercise like go for a run or bike ride or something, that always works for me.

Heh, I used to have a very old and crappy Pentium 75. It stopped working, so under fire it went! The CPU didn't fry. I took it out and smashed it on the ground. No way the CPU would get away without injury.

Another one was a dead screen. With a giant sledgehammer. BAM!

I also did the mistake to smash my friend's NES. It costed mine. So when you urge to smash something, think twice before doing it.

Okay, yeah I understand you don't have money but the post is about what if you DID. Your given the opportunity to destroy what you have then get it replaced with everything exactly how it was on your last electronic. For me, that would be a haven. I swear more of my stress comes from electronics then people themselves.
