"like shooing flies..." is perfect symbolism for the annoyance of those PC screen popups! "maggots" a much stronger term but likewise very descriptive of the offensive popups. Clever and on target.

"without thinking I click on the little boxes
in the bottom left corners of the windows" <-- yep, that would be me! What a vivid display of what we go through when the "electronic maggots" show up on our screen. Great wording.

Great descriptions of this modern day inconvenience - such a pest as they are. Superb!

OH! Flashback to a few months ago when I virtually destroyed our laptop by innocently hitting a little "no" button because I couldn't find the "x" in the corner...yup, it all went to hell in a handbag haha This is so true Chris, I need to learn how better to use that 'fly' swatter next time ;-)
