Its PC Gone Mad

I must reassure you that this title doesn't mean I haven't turned into a Daily Mail quoting reactionary

I may be a paranoid neurotic (No may about it!) but I think our PCs at work are starting to get self aware. Now I'm not saying it is going to develop into a Terminator Skynet style situation but they do have the power to drive me to consider retributive action. (which will probably be this sarcastic post..the weapon of choice for a Blogger).
Not satisfied with :
+ Screwing up my working day by refusing to boot up when I am in a panic (on average every other day!)
+ Rearranging all my files and burying the most important ones beyond reach
+ Clearly making my spelling and grammar look atrocious
+ refusing to print documents when requested and saving them all up to splurge out at the precisely calculated most inconvenient moment.
+ Altering all pictures of myself to make me look fat and slightly cross eyed
It is now messing with my head by blurring the Internet with reality. Witness the picture above, in which to get a refund on train tickets we were urged to stick them on the monitor. (please note its not my hand!)
I hope this post has reached you in its original, witty, insightful form. If not, this is down to the PC conspiracy and I need you to take all to take up hammers, or a good high heeled shoe and smash the system.

Any form of Intelligence would be good. Artificial or otherwise, because there is bugger all here in Stoke!
I'm holding out for hitchiking with
a passing Vogon if I can stand the poetry

With crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon,
See if I don't!

(Yes, I had to google to find some, but I knew what I was looking for.)

Thank you so much brad, My friend Vix wrote me a poem, but for someone to send me Vogon poetry, the 3rd worst in the galaxy, well that is something else.

Only the the 3rd worst in the galaxy for you :-)
