Common Icons That Always F-ck Up Your Day

I guess we all have those days when everything seems to go south. We do our best to remain patient, yet everything that possibly could go wrong…well, does go wrong. It’s nothing to get too upset about. Just keep treading the path until a new day dawns. There are of course things that add to the annoyance on these particular days. These things have become known as the common icons that always f-ck up your day, no matter how you look at it.

One example is the low fuel indicator on our car dashboard. Yeah, you know what I am talking about. It’s like it knows when you are in a hurry. It’s like its very existence revolves around going off as soon you don’t have time to refuel. We also have the low battery indicator on our smartphones. Don’t even get me started on that one. Being as busy as we all are these days, our mobile devices are supposed to aid us in our hurry. But no, this master of all common icons has a tendency to go off right at the wrong moment. There seems to be no getting around it either. I am sure that even if you got yourself a stack of reserve batteries, or even an emergency charger, that little thing will go off regardless.

Well, while I am thinking about it, the arch enemy of them all is the hourglass. Oh how I hate that little thing. Whoever came up with that one was just too lazy when it came to optimizing the hardware to work faster. To even come up with an icon (to add to the already extensive number of icons) to tell you that you have to wait is both obnoxious and annoying. I mean, I didn’t buy a computer to sit and wait in front of it. I got it to optimize my work. Look at the smartphones today. How many times do you see an hourglass or a “please wait” icon on one of those. You don’t! I have to say, this compilation truly deserves the name Common Icons That Always F-ck Up Your Day. I don’t know whether I should thank or be mad at cinismoilustrado for bringing this to my attention. Breathe, it is what it is I guess.
