What do you do when you make a mistake when starting a discussion or responding and you forget to add something like a statement or an image. You hit the start discussion button and it is to late. I was going to add an image to my last discussion I had found the image and filled out all the information, didn't load the image and click the discussion button and realized the mistake, the discussion was gone no image. No way you can stop it. I smacked myself on the forehead. What do you do when this happens? Do you Cuss? Hit the computer desk with your fist? Stump your foot on the floor?

Hi there Chevee Aghhhhh that's so annoying isn't it? I have lost count of how many times I have done and recently too. I usually swear though under my breathe in case any of my kids are in ear shot!!

That's why they put erasers on pencil because people makes mistakes. So happen this couldn't be.

Stump a foot on the floor? Isn't a stump the bottom end of the tree left behind when you cut it down? or actually when an arm is cut off you might get a bloody stump. If you cut off your foot when you are angry, that's some extreme dedication to the anger I guess.

I understand your point, that's not the first mistake I have made. After I posted it I realize I had the wrong stomp, but there was no way to change it. If your correction was meant to be helpful thanks.

Well, crap!!!! Yeah I usually swear (I did so politely here, but the words I would choose out loud wouldn't be quite so "nice"). Don't you just hate when that happens! So much to do and so little time to do it in causes these things to happen daily in our house.

i always do that!!1 heheh and guess what i did something like that today!!! i missed a single word which could change the whole meaning of the post!! it was like a newbee.. posted a link in his discussion.. and so to warn him i made a post saying you are not supposed to post links here!!! but what i did actually was.. i did not put that word "not" in the sentence,,.. so it sounded like " you are supposed to put the links here".. and i hit the submit button ....god!! i hit my head at that time seeing my mistake.. and then i made another post including that "not" in the sentence and i underlined that word "not" !!! funny really funny!!! i just laugh it out!!

I just say "sh*it or blast it. And then I write something else and say "I forgot to upload the picture, so here it is." It really gets annoying. I have had it happen to me and it was so annoying because it was something important and it really hurt me.

It really is very annoying, that! I just sit back, with a sad face, wishing I had cross-checked before hitting that button!

I'd more like swear (under my breath) during such times. But I'm learning to be a bit more relaxed and in control by stretching my arms and legs just like when you yawn. I'd also do some "neck twisting" and resume doing botched activity.

I just cuss now because the other things do not work. I am doing my best to keep my anger under control because I have enough stress in my life already that I do not need to add more to it. Besides, people on here are pretty forgiving about discussions and responses on here.

Swear. I'm very keen on swearing when I make a mistake; sometimes at the computer, sometimes at myself, sometimes at the both of us.

I say d*mn a lot.. It happens at my desk just as it does at your, I will hit the post response button and then it dawns on me, and the first word out of my mouth is d*mn.. I am bad about not always checking for typos and then I send it and feel like an idiot, thinking, now, old girl, you know you can spell and type better than that, but everyone else is going to think you are an uneducated idiot.. They may be right, lol..

In general, when I mess up, and I am by myself of just around friends, I swear. I know its a bad habit, and it may get me into trouble if I get too used to doing it, but whatever for now. So my answer would be I cuss.

All of the above!*L* I can't even tell you how many times I have left something out of a post, just to have to go back under my response and respond, again. I only just realized a couple of days ago that I could add a picture to a response, and have never had occasion to post one to one of my discussions, so I haven't forgotten to upload the picture yet. I am sure my time is coming though.
