I Yell At Inanimate Objects

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 985 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    At Least The Cat Still Looks At Me All Gooey, Cause If My Printer Did I'd Be Worried.

    Well the fridge doesn't answer back, but will beep if you leave the door open long enough. (I only hope it doesn't mean it's reversing) The computer's survived my rampage. The walls just look blank. The reflection in the jug is somewhat scary, and warped. The couch likes a...

    Being 50

    I decided that I ought to do something frivolous and puerile if I get to 50, and I’m not really into going to Prague with my non-existent mates and getting a prostitute, I can’t afford a sportscar or botox, and I’m not married so I can’t have an affair.  Instead I’ve...

    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.

    Yes I Do, and Sometimes Talk to Them

    I curse at things, usually my computer,

    Why Do I Do It?

    I am normally a calm person but certain objects (phones, computers etc) drive me round the twist when I can't figure them out. I am often known to shout at my computer when it (and I mean it not me!) does something illogical. Sometimes it has been known to work!

    I yell at my backpack sometimes, and I tell inanimate objects to stay put. I'm not an angry person, so usually I just get frustrated at stuff and tell it to stop. But yeah, I'm weird

    I Talk To Stuff

    Whenever I stub my toe on something, I cuss at it and grab it, and almost mutilate the object just to scare it, and maybe I hit it once or twice. Sometimes, I just ask it why, and stare at it for a minute waiting for a reply. When my computer is slow, I plead with it. I beg it 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.

    Often.

    Better than yelling at someone, right? I don't care if I come across crazy. I would much rather be a little crazy than really mean. Yelling never really accomplishes much. Especially AT someone. The one thing that yelling does for me is it reeeeeally lets me dig deep down from...

    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...
