Frustration as Haiku


Own a computer?
Frustration personified

Well, need I say more?

Now you're put on hold!

It's the holiday season
Being watched all day

  3. Add me to the list of favouring number 2 as a pet hate! That seems to be a weekly occurrence! Almost part of routine! And I adore the zoo observation!

  9. Number 3 looks like the little girl I saw at the store today. Her mother's solution was to sit on the floor of the store and do the same back to her daughter (I am assuming they were mother and daughter :)) Glad I was only a spectator! Love the post!
