Dear Windows 8,
We haven’t known each other for very long, and things just aren’t working out. I don’t want to hurt you, but I think it’s time we went our separate ways. I don’t think I ever loved you Windows 8.
There was that time I tried to send an email with an attachment, but you held me back by hiding the ‘attach’ button. Why would you do such a thing? Aren’t we supposed to be working together? I almost cried that night. All I wanted was to send an email. You upset me, Windows 8. You upset me real bad.
Then there was that time I was working on something and you tricked me into closing it instead of minimising it. For a moment I hadn’t realised what I’d done, until it was too late. All my work – gone. This relationship was never going to work with you changing the rules all the time. It’s like you don’t care about me at all.
And don’t think I haven’t noticed you’ve hidden all my important program’s and files. Oh yeah. I know you’ve got them. I just don’t understand why you would do that? Are you aiming to upset me? I wanted to send a funny picture to a friend, but I couldn’t find a way to get to it. It was going to be so great. But there was no laughter that day. Only tears.
Didn’t anyone ever tell you it’s a bad idea to bring baggage into any relationship? Well I saw all those apps. Hundreds of them. I don’t need them in my life. I had to get rid of all of them. I only did it because I care.
I also heard that you upset my Mum. For shame. She was just trying to watch a movie and you wouldn’t let her leave. Uncle John had to rescue her. She might have been stuck watching that movie, possibly forever.
Now I know we’re going to have to live together for a while, because I just bought this new laptop and you have nowhere else to go. But let me be clear, it’s over between us. As soon as I meet a new Windows I’m moving on. So, I suggest you do the same.
