I had a printed copy of my work calendar stuck on the wall to the right of my monitor. For several minutes I tried in vain to move the cursor off my monitor and on to the printed copy so I could click on it and make a new appointment. I assumed it was a fault with the computer, so switched it off and on again, only then did I realise my stupidity.

I get tremendously narked
when I can't brush flies off my screen with the cursor.

I've also caught myself thinking 'CTRL-F' when trying to find a page in a book.

I was was showing off a piece of software to some people at a trade show, then tried to indicate some relevant information on a poster on the wall behind the monitor by pointing to it with the mouse.

It didn't work, but part of me still feels like it should have.
