#FOWC — Senior Moments and Brain Farts

84B9DF16-EF78-4F3D-BFF0-450872F83CE6I just realized that I had a senior moment yesterday — probably one of many senior moments I had yesterday — and forgot to respond to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge for the word “curtail.” And since I’m Fandango, that’s just embarrassing.

When I told my wife about yesterday’s brain fart, she suggested that perhaps I need to curtail the amount of time I spend each day on WordPress.

“I object!” I said. “I’ll curtail the amount of time I spend on WordPress if you’ll do the same on Twitter.” She quickly demurred. She is easily as addicted to Twitter as I am to WordPress.

And speaking about WordPress, the problem I posted about a few days ago in this post regarding the most recent WordPress update for the iOS app, remains unresolved. Seems that the Happiness Engineers have been unable to replicate the issue. Yet it continues unabated when I use the app.

Apparently they believe that problem I’m having with their app is my fault. Perhaps they think I’m just experiencing more senior moments — or too many brain farts.

I’m tempted, since Automatic, the company behind WordPress, is headquartered in San Francisco, to go to their offices, hand them my iPhone, and refuse to leave until they fix the bug!

Written for today’s Fandango’s One-Word Challenge, “object.”

      I’m sure a security guard would be happy to escort me out of the building.

    They probably think it’s a “feature.” That’s what you call a glitch you put there on purpose.

    WordPress is like many other major companies patting the consumer on the head and delaying actually doing anything major.

    It is almost similar to the actions Facebook made “to better improve your experience” yet it doesn’t and oft times makes things worse.

    The only time these behemoths will change is if there is a ground swell from large numbers of their customers otherwise you might as well head over to their office and see if anyone IS alive there.

      They finally did get around to fixing the problem. I’ve blogged on at least three other blogging platforms and WordPress is, overall, the best. Unfortunately, the bar is pretty low.
