I Yell At Inanimate Objects

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,538 People

    I should say I yell at computers.

    My laptop is about 8 years old now and barely functions anymore but I don't feel like spending the money on a new one. It boots fast, but then the desktop just sits there, doing nothing. You can't open Start, you can't access the browser, you can't do anything. I'm always...

    I do. Be it my cellphone (when I had one),

    tv, computer, internet modem, or iPad. If the object doesn't functions the way it should, I'll yell at it because it's not doing its job. They were made to do a certain job, and if they don't then they deserve to be reprimanded. Another occasion in which I would yell at...

    Yes I Do, and Sometimes Talk to Them

    I am really bad about yelling at them when I am frustrated at them or they do not work Like I plan.  Whats bad is I will catch myself asking an inanimate object why it will not work or to just work with me.  But, Yelling is a big one.  I yell a at my computer when...

    Damn Electrical Appliances!

    Yes, it is true. Electrical devices, furniture and kitchenware do have a personality, and problems can occur when it clashes with your own. Lets face, all of those devices are meant to be loyal and committed to your needs, so when they don't play nicely it is clearly their...

    Well, I yell a lot in general.

    I love to yell "YOU'RE LYING" or just stuff that I should be saying in a normal tone. It just naturally comes out. It's been like that my whole life. It's a trait I picked up from my mom and maternal grandfather. XD

    I curse at things, usually my computer,

    sometimes hit it when it really pushes my buttons, although with any rage at an inanimate object the one that feels the best is giving them an aggressive middle finger. Amusing thing is, about a month ago I watched the outtakes from Hot Fuzz and Simon Pegg had trouble turning a...

    Clearly, people like us.

    . We can't handle it when an object doesn't do what they are supposed to... I mean come on! We all know it's their fault!

    My Computer. Always My Computer.

      So, I think I've been yelling at this stupid computer since I got it but in the last week, its been nearly incessant.  It's had all kinds of trouble since I got it, mostly relating to shutting down when it overheats.  It was under warranty and I took it back, three times to...

    Sometimes Its My Only Conversation For the Day.

    I love and name inanimate objects, and yes, I yell at them!  Sometimes I go a whole 24 hours without speaking a word to anyone, so I think the yelling helps.

    Yelling Is Good For the Soul!

    Yelling at inanimate objects is something I find myself doing often in my rage during the times when I can't find my keys, wallet, phone, cigarettes, etc.  I've also yelled at God so often I'm sure he's really sick of it or just sits there saying 'yeah whatever just let it...

    Ridiculous

    But it really does help me feel better after they've pissed me off. Some of these things are lucky I haven't taken a hammer to them or run them over with my car (which rarely ****** me off, that awesome little car). I think about it, but I settle for yelling.

    Yep... it happened just this morning,

    in fact. My coffee table stuck its foot out and tried to trip, managing to make me stub my big toe and causing me to turn and yell and curse at it loud enough for the neighbors to hear. Thank goodness they didn't call the police and we weren't charged with domestic disturbance...
