    Things that dis-please you !

    i am currently typng with a strange keyboard from my friend. Some keys don't really work, and the spacebar is uber dodgy. so if there are any spelling mistakes then it aint m fault.

    What IS my fault is my own keyboard. It displeased me.

    SoI gave it a really good punch. which hurt my hand for a bit. but totally ruined my keyboard. the whole left hand side is busted. the space bar is currently in 3 bits and about 3 meters away, and the first key I ave intact from querty is "t".

    A mate of mine wanted his battlefield vietnam cd back from his laptop when he was drunk. It wouldn't eject. So he f**ked it up and ripped the drive out...

    What damage have you guys/gals done to stuff that displeased you ?

    Earphones. Cheap ones; after a few weeks, the sound will start to go in one of the ears, and you have to wiggle the wire for a while, to get it to work. Several times, I've got annoyed after 30 seconds or so, and ripped the wire out, broke them in half, and chucked them across the room.

    I now own some Goodmans Pro 9007 Wireless earphones, so the problem is solved.

    A wall. It wasn't really the object of my dissatisfaction, but it bore the brunt anyway. Luckily it was only plasterboard so I broke it rather than my fist, but left a pretty impressive couple of holes anyway...

    oh yeah.. my previous mobile... the back light stopped working over a couple of months.. it required a little tap to get it back each time.. One day this gentle tap stopped working. Can u guess what happened to the phone ? Can u ?

    God I bought/buy phones that are bricks so that accdental droppage is not an issue - along with accidental leaving it and folk not wanting to nick it properties. It took a solid half hour of focused attention to rip the bugger to shreds. sadly there was not much left. I managed to salvage the SIM card.

    Thats pretty much it for stuff I bust for no good reason. It is not a regular occurrence

    My old DVD writer, refused to write, so i RMA'd it, got it back saying it was working. Installed it, didn't work, took it out, through across room.

    One smashed DVD drive, and one BIG dent in wall. Luckly my g/fs Dad is a builder, so did a brill job fixing it! (The wall that is)

    Holy crap.. I am hogging this thread.. but I started it. so whatever..

    My old cd burner stopped burning.. so I surgically took it apart and learned a hell of a lot about them. I fancied getting at the laser. Damn was that one hard to get to..

    Couldn't use it for noubt obviously. then the fun is to put it back together again... and sell it on e-bay...

    This was more a pre planned crime than a crime of passion like the others...

    Couldnt get an old DOS game to work properly with sound, i think it was ultima underworld.

    So kicked my PC in and it stopped working (Oh dear!) then i took it apart (The first time i ever opened a PC) then learned a lot about patience & PC's after spending £200 repairing it

    I once destroyed a wardrobe in a fit of rage.

    I forget what set me off but I turned the wardrobe into matchwood in about 15 minutes.

    Other than that I took my stress out on the rugby pitch and at sparring sessions when kickboxing.

    Slightly off topic, but I went beserk at a sheet of plywood the other day. Was feeling really wound up for the whole day and was walking home. Was passing this sheet of plywood down an alley and went nuclear and attacked it. Kicked and punched it loads of times. Managed to cut my hand up but felt a lot better afterwards.

    The garden fence, high winds blew it down so off I went to sort it out, made sure the post were solid, dug 3ft into the ground and put concrete around them to secure them further and you guessed it, friggin rained, concrete was destroyed before it was set so after the rain had finished I proceeded to get the axe out the garage and hack the back section of the fence to pieces, needless to say it cost me a bit to replace it, but was good whilst it lasted.

    I've put hole's in 2 walls and a door, destroyed dvd drives, hdd's and a very old 24'' t.v, reduced a rather old rickety dining room chair to kindling and severly bruised my knuckles while punching a wall forgetting in was the main load bearing wall of the house all in different fit's of rage, perhaps I should look into anger managment......
