Almost 40% of computer users admit they have cursed at that infernal machine at one time or another, according to a worldwide survey conducted by IT security experts Avira. But not all PC users have potty mouths. 38% brag they have never once yelled at their computer in moments of frustration. Other facts to know and tell about how our computers make us mad:
  • 11% have wished a catastrophe would strike the company that makes the operating system software or the computer hardware.
  • 9% have actually hit their computer with an object, including a baseball bat or a fist.
  • 3% have picked up the computer and smashed it into the ground or against another object.

So what can you do to control your anger at your computer? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these tips:

A - Avoid. Don't let your anger or other angry people control you.
N - Never use your body or voice to hurt others.
G - Get away from the situation so your feelings don't overwhelm you.
E - Evaluate your choices. Think before you react!
R - Responsibility. Remember, you are responsible for your choices. No one can make you angry. You allow yourself to become angry. And you can choose not to get angry, too!
