When I turn on my computer, I typically open up beaucoup tabs and multiple windows. Like most of us, I have a lot going on. I want to catch those emails as they come, maybe listen to a little music as well as write. For the most part, this is my normal routine and I can get a lot done provided nothing goes wrong. However there are those times when circumstances beyond my control causes me to deviate from my norm and incites a crazy click frenzy.
It’s bad and admittedly illogical but at the time, it’s what I do. When I am working in one tab and there is a pause or an interruption in internet services I immediately go to the next tab hoping that it will be different there. I usually find that the same problem exists but for some strange reason, I move to the next tab and before you know it every tab at the top of my computer is spinning, the address bar is permanently half blue and I am staring at the computer muttering something to the effect of “what’s wrong with this thing.” I do this every time although I’ve heard that definition of insanity.
