FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.
Dear Microsoft Word:
I hate you. No, seriously. I utterly completely and totally despise you. Let's recap the last half-hour's issues:
1. This is a computer in a state office, so hardly top of the line technology, but it does have a 2.4gig processor and a half-gig of RAM. It should not take four minutes to scroll, using the scroll wheel of my mouse, two pages up.
2. It should not take forty-five seconds to switch from one MS Word document to the other.
3. It CERTAINLY should not take a minute and a half to copy and paste from one to the other, nor to change a block of text to red font.
4. And why the unholy cheesemonkeys does copying cells from one numbered table and pasting them to another numbered table not only remove the numbering in the second table, but replace the numbers with funky bullet points - IN THREE DIFFERENT STYLES?!
One of you Microsoft-working people, go find the Word team and shoot them in the kneecaps. Please.
(I would totally be using OpenOffice, if only I could expect it to be compatible with the macros I have to use to convert the Word docs into fee sheet format.)
Also, I would just like to say how totally unfair it is for someone in this open-plan office to be eating some super-delicious-smelling bbq and not have enough to share with everyone else.
