Saying Goodbye is so Hard


Dear MS Office,

We’ve had some fun times, haven’t we? Like that time I was presenting at a Linguistic Colloquium and Powerpoint crashed, and then randomly misplaced all my audio files, so I had to improvise and recreate the infant cries with my own voice :lol: So fun.

Oh and I will never forget that time when Word crashed whilst I was writing my MA thesis conclusion, and the back-up save failed, and the back-up back-up fail was a huge mess, so I had to re-write it from my actual “brain” memory at 5am. Good times. Wow.

Oh and Excel. The way Excel screws up everything. So, like, everything I did in it became a cesspool of disorder and crappiness. Love that. The long hours of entering data that I lost because of you will be remembered fondly.

And every time I transfered files from my Mac to a PC. Like the day I was printing out my thesis (at the last possible moment) and you decided to add a extra blank page to the beginning of every chapter so all the page numbers were pushed out of sync with the Table of Contents (which was a bloody disaster… again… because of you).

To summarize: YOU SUCK, Microsoft RUBBISH.

Fond Regards,
Lisa


PS. Meet my new bf.
