90 degree angle interruptus…

I hate it when this happens. I know I’m not the only one on the planet who, every so often, maybe due to fat, clumsy fingers or not paying attention due to bright, shiny objects, somehow manages to turn her screen on the side at a 90 degree angle. No, I don’t know how it happens. If I did I would stop doing it. The pain in the bum about this is that I then have to stand up and crane my head on the side so I can find the google bookmark I have for this entitled “how do I turn my computer screen right side up?” Sounds easy but everything goes backwards and where you think the cursor is it isn’t. And why the hell would you have it so you could inadvertently turn your screen on a 90 degree angle anyway? It’s not like I’m an astronaut in zero gravity. Who thought that dumb arsed idea up? A computer nerd drinking too much red cordial? Yes, it is a terrible drama – how much can a koala bear I ask you? 90 degree angle interruptus? It's out there. Be careful.
