I Yell At Inanimate Objects

    of course I yell at objects.

    I need to give the wall a piece of my mind to make sure it doesn't bump into me again.

    pencils, homework, forks,

    stuffed animals, my phone. anything that isn't cooperating with what I want it to do, i will blame it on the object to make myself feel better. sometimes I just talk to the object normally, like if I lose a pencil I will ask where it has gone, its a way to organize my thoughts.

    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!

    I yelled at the lawn mower

    as it wouldn't start today.. I filled it upwith the right fuel I checked to see it was turned on and in the right gear but every time I pulled the cord it wouldn't start.. So I tried a few times and when I started talking calmly to it.. It started. Lol sad but true.

    I will yell at a chair

    if I run into it and if my phone goes off when I'm trying to listen to something I will tell it to be quiet. I always yell at things especially if I hurt myself by running into it in the middle of the dark.

    I was really upset one day,

    so instead of dealing with my issues I just yelled at the street lamps that were flickering and the sky. It worked.

    At least once a day I mumble curses at my

    computer at work. It may look like an inanimate object but I'm convinced it possesses an evil soul whose purpose for existence is to **** me off.

    Any time I bump into something,

    be it a door or anything. I yell at it and say try that again!! Like the object hit me. My mom heard me do that, and sighed. I said you're the one who kept me locked in a room with all my toys, so I had things instead of people, so now I treat things like people.

    I mostly yell at my T.

    V. when I am doing horrible at a video game. I'll also yell at couches, beds, and tables, if they attack my toes.

    As a software developer

    and a gamer, I'm regularly filled with reasons to yell at my machine. I actually make it a point to never use the same curse twice. I do this so I have to look up new and interesting ways to express frustration. It makes me feel productive.

    When I'm cleaning, a lot of things tend to fall

    and I get very annoyed. If the same thing falls when I put it back to its place like 5 times, I blame the world for it. "Omg world please don't do this to me again" even though I should be blaming gravity.

    I learned so much about swearing by watching my

    dad fix the family car. To this day I can unleash a blistering stream of obscenity when working on a frustrating task that would make a sailor blush.

    Mostly stupid things like cups

    or pencils. "You better not roll off this table or I swear you're never going to be used again!" Or "If you tip over I'm going to kill you". If inanimate objects have feelings, I'm so sorry.

    It can be anything, my phone,

    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 swear to god, if I run into the bed frame one

    more time, I'm gonna lose it. I now have two bruised bumps on my right leg, and my advice d or It to stop being so sharp isn't working. Yelling might be in order.

    Usually the computer

    and the car are the recipients of my abuse. Threatening the laptop with a chainsaw or a drop-kick off the roof seems to help. With the car it is usually more begging than yelling. At work I yell at the paint all the time. And the tape. And the drawings when the math isn't...

    Especially computers,

    they bring out the worst in me. "What are you doing?" "Hurry up!" "What is your f**king problem you b****rd?" In fact my blood pressure would be a lot lower if they'd just do what they were told!

    cause somehow, in some crazy way,

    it feels like more got accomplished by yelling at some random inanimate object than yelling at a person. and for anyone who disagrees, try it first
