Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

I’ve recently had some computer frustrations that regardless of what I do and regardless of who provides much needed technical assistance, the problems that caused those frustrations keep hanging around. Alas, in celebration of those frustrations, I provide these technological jokes


After i-messaging back and forth with my wife, I jokingly commanded Siri to pass along this message: “You need to get back to work now; you have a husband to support.”

Here’s what Siri sent: “You need 
to get back to work now; you have 
a has-been to support.”


  • Instagram is just Twitter for people who go outside.
  • The closest I’ve been to a diet this year is erasing food searches from my browser history.
  • I put so much more effort into naming my first Wi-Fi router than my 
first child.
  • If an anonymous comment goes unread, is it still irritating?
  • If nobody likes your selfie, what is the value of the self?
  • To see a man or woman’s true face, look to the 
photos he or she hasn’t posted.
  • GPS map programs really need to start directions on step number five. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

    I know it was terribly early in the morning when you wrote lighten up Mondays, but I sure hope you get a chuckle out of these jokes as we do.

      Mary, every article I post I set up on a posting schedule through WordPress, both for my personal blog and my author website. That way I can set them up days, or weeks, in advance and they automatically show up on the scheduled date.

      Sometimes technology aligns perfectly with what a person wants to do – other times? Not so much.
