: Friggin 21st century. Friggin computers. Friggin online banking.
: Steeenking Wells Fargo. Dammit. I wanna teleport to a simpler
: century. Take me back to 1757 please.

: I can't do my online banking because wells fargo has decided to upgrade for security to the latest browsers. Fine. Except you gotta go to Netscape and hope you can download (takes 1.5 hours) or go to
: Microsoft and download (THAT one takes 6.5 hours - no friggin surprise being as it is Bill Gates not-here-to-service-you-just-rip-you-off-and-take-your-money company)
: and of course you get knocked off line before download is complete, or you finally have the download go and get a corrupted file error message so you can't upgrade your friggin browser. NOW, that is bad enough but friggin Wells Fargo locks you out if you don't have the latest upgrade - they don't warn you - they don't allow you to go with less security until you get the upgrade. Nope. Just say "hey stupid, you don't have the latest upgrade on browser so we aint gonna let you in". Well, they're from California what do you expect? Friggin airheads.

Dear Gnome,

Now just pick your little pointy red hat up out of the dirt and settle down. This "computer" thing is all a nightmare brought on by consumption of a batch of bad mushrooms. Just tell yourself it's not real at all and go back to sending smoke signals like the rest of us do. Puff puff puff puff. See how easy it is? Why your little face is as red as your hat! There, there, calm yourself down, and we'll go over to Miss Marcia's and have one of her seriously refreshing mint juleps or maybe a plate of her special calming Fuuu-uuuu-dge with a cool glass of buttermilk.

**MISS MARCIA??!!! Critical case coming your way - get the happy drinks ready!**
