There's nothing like a good bout of frustration to cheer me up, but some people in the vicinity think I'm picking on them. They get snarky. In this article I tell the story of my frustrations with a new mini ipad and the snarky responses of the salesperson. Some things just are not your fault. Give me some space, especially when I'm laughing at myself.

Yes, a bit more mutual empathy would be good for us all. It's a boundary issue, too. I've been in the presence of people where I must be happy all the time, not one iota of any dissatisfaction or unhappiness, even when at a restaurant and the soup is cold and the wine is sour.

Thanks. I think so many things are funny. There is downright enjoyment in expressing frustration. I wish we had more freedom to do so. I am finding that the mini is a very good Kindle. I have a Kindle and may now not use it as much as I have.
