Top 10 List: Nerd Rage

karate-kyleNerd Rage is not an exact science. There are no right or wrong answers. All approaches have their validity and pros and cons.

The following list is offered as a general guide only. It is not intended to be a road map. Your mileage may vary. The important thing is to be creative and make it your own. Play with it. Get crazy. Do things in a slightly different order.

Much like there are five generally accepted steps in the grieving process, this list attempts to make sense of nerd rage. I think I wrote it after spending eight hours trying to get music from iTunes to sync with my iPad. You know, that thing at which Apple is rumored to excel.

Nerd Rage List
in order of escalation

  1. Shrug and blame it on the cloud. Optimistically try to work the problem.
  2. Feel irritated.
  3. Feel more irritation.
  4. Say out loud (or tweet): “WTH”
  5. Say out loud (or tweet): “WTF”
  6. Yell, “G*ddammit!”
  7. Symbolically pound something causing no real damage.
  8. Throw something breakable and smash it to bits.
  9. Drive angry.
  10. Repeatedly shoot a gun in the air.
  11. Head asplode. (Bonus step.)

I’ll close with an ancient guru curse: May you always have plenty of technology.
