Grandad is really pissing me off.
He has this habit of messing around with software, and has installed a load of useless crap on this PC. It could now be outpaced by a snail on Valium.
Of course I keep uninstalling things, but for every program that is removed, there is half a ton of crud that is left behind, whose sole function seems to be to slow the machine down and take up large chunks of disk space.
I wouldn’t mind too much if he used the programmes but invariably he plays with them for an hour or so, gets bored with them and then heads off to the pub leaving me with the mess.
His latest fad is Twitter.
I don’t like Twitter. It is just mindless chatter that epitomises the modern generations and is a distraction. Unfortunately, he seems to like it. He has garnered quite a following by all accounts, though I can’t understand why.
I tried removing it, but he came back from the pub the other night, a little worse for wear and threw a mighty stroppy fit. He demanded his Twitter. As we are running low on crockery (again), I had to relent and reinstall it.
Now I have to suffer a barrage of notifications every time one of his pals writes something. It is very irritating.
The sooner he gets bored of it, the better.
