Sound familiar? Welcome to the Cough-it-up Computer, Club! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, picture this: Someone sent you an email a few days ago. Now you need to respond and you can't find it. (I see you nodding your head now.) Back to the cyber hunt. Honestly, how many different places are there where it could be? Definitely not in my in box, although I don't have a hot clue why. Next stop, dig through trash, can't be that deep down. Would I have sent it to trash in the first place? I'd like to say , "Absolutely not!" but maybe I better not, given my rather too-quick-to-trash-it-track record. Clear to the bottom now. Nada! Somebody is misplacing stuff in here. And. I. Don't. Like. It. I'm an organized person... for the most part. Let's see, maybe in the sent file? Really don't know why, but hey, why not? Not here either. YES! It's gotta be in Archives! Alas....everything but, there as well. You got it? All to often, it is not to be found...like it was never there. Maybe the google people took it. Which would explain why after a few weeks, when you don't want it anymore, it mysteriously reappears. The google guy or gal gave it back! Nice! But no thanks. Just leave my stuff alone, please!
I wonder if the trusty typewriter ever gobbled anything up?
Do you have a computer caper story to share? And please don't tell me I'm the only one who has a computer with a mind of it's own and that all too often speaks none of the three languages I'm familiar with.
