Steve Sr: DARNELL!!!
Me: Actually, my name is Danielle. You’ve only known me for almost 16 years, and I only LIVE with you, in your freaking HOUSE, so I can understand where there is some confusion. But yeah, DANIELLE. That is my name. It’s not new.
Steve Sr: WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO THIS MACHINE?!?!?!
Me: Gosh, I dunno. Maybe I spent several hours fixing all the crap you did to your computer during the five minutes you spent on said computer, as I do EVERY DAY, due to the fact that I have been saying for OVER A YEAR that you are KRYPTONITE to electronics, your computer is a piece of crap, and I’m actually not here right now. Please leave a message. PLEASE.
Steve Sr: DARNELL!!! WHY IS THIS NOT WORKING!?!?!?! *click click click clickclickclickclick!!!!!!!!!!!*
Me: Frantic clicking does not help.
