The Monitor Curse continues

It’s BACK and it only took 10 days to appear.

Check out the scratch crack at the top right of my new monitor case. The curse’s power is growing faster than I anticipated. Just so we are clear, I did not harm this monitor in any way shape or form. I took it out of the box, set it up on my desk, plugged it in and left it ALONE. It’s not like I grabbed it and threw it up against the wall in a drunken rage like those trashy day time soap operas. I digress. I’m heading off to work and then BAM, it hit me like Britney Spears and an unwanted pregnancy. Right away I knew what it was…TheKyle Monitor Curse in physical form. At that point I did the only thing I knew to do – stare it down. I took a step back, gathered my energy and focused intently at it. After a minute of two or virtually no movement I knew I was beat. My frail human body failed me, again.

Hopefully my stare down weakened him but only time will tell.

You’re probably thinking about now, well it was there when he bought and he just missed it. Wrong again my lonely friend (why else would you read this?). This piece of slightly attractive technology was packed like all other modern electronics in that it was decorated with many pointless stickers trying to (re)educate you on its cool features. Take a hint genius, I already bought the damn thing so why do you feel its necessary to remind me of the product specs and features? My point to all of this nonsense is I distinctly remember having to remove a sticker from the top right corner. The very same place where the crack lives.

So face on you and all disbelievers out there and especially those of you named Martin.
