You Won’t Like Me When I’m Angry

666 words - 3 pages

Computers and I have never gotten along. However, I am not the only one. Many people have trouble with computers and I am among those unfortunate souls. Like many others, when something goes wrong, I panic. Therefore, I created a mnemonic device to help, which is “Bounteous Sacrifices Bore Particular Rulers” which stands for the five steps on how to handle computer malfunctions for non-technically savvy people. The steps are breathe, stroke, baby-talk, plead, and restart. Each step has an important part to play in dealing with a computer issue. Breathe is to help calm down. Stroke, baby-talk, and plead use humor to calm a tense situation. Restart is the final and simplest step; you need to restart your computer in order to get it working again.

That is why breathe is the first part of “Bounteous Sacrifices Bore Particular Rulers.” Bounteous is an unusual word to start a mnemonic device but it was chosen because when putting together the sentence that represented the device, I had this image in my head of a king sitting on a throne staring at his subjects’ offering and being incredibly disinterested. However, what really connected bounteous for me was when you are angry and thinking of kings who were terrible at their jobs, King John, and how they would royally lose their temper at their subjects. I learned the hard way what happens when you do not use the breathe step. At the age of twelve, I was working on a laptop, and was having trouble with Excel. I got so frustrated that I threw the computer down and smashed the screen into pieces. If I had breathed, then my family would still have the laptop for several more years. However, there breathing stops being effective, humor can useful
Humor is a useful tool in...
