Marriage Quotes - Will Farrel

Having been married for 30+ years I can tell you that this quote was spoken in truth. I actually have a nickname for my wife that goes along with this quote. I call her "Buttons".

"Slow your roll Buttons". "Relax, Buttons". These are  few things I have said while trying to calm my wife when dealing with a computer or a TV remote that might have been slow to respond.

My wife is usually pretty level headed and logical in her decision making process and actions. However, sit Dr. Jekyll on the couch with a remote that is "broken" or behind a computer that is "Just being stupid" and you can see Mr. Hyde come out immediately. Probably a few well paced curse words as well.

On a computer, she will have clicked "enter" so many times that when the dust finally settles she will have 76 of the same pages open and a spinning blue circle trying desperately to keep up with the commands being inputted. The TV/Cable remote also takes severe verbal abuse along with being hit or pounded on something so many times that it could pursue charges for domestic violence.

So the quote, while funny, holds some truth. For me, the result of the slow computer or remote is always good for a bit of entertainment as well as ensuring my need to be kept around by my wife.

I feel your pain. Somewhere over the last 35 years my wife earned the name of "The Quick-Click Chick".If patience is truly a virtue, she is living in sin. The up side is as you said, being able to "fix" those computer glitches means we are still relevant in their eyes. I long for the days of pad, paper, and eraser!
