What Grinds my Gears: Links that open new tabs/windows …

April 12, 2012

You know what grinds my gears (via/ht Peter as a newsman on ‘Family Guy’): when I’m on my iPhone — and already have the eight iPhone maximum amount of internet tabs/windows open (another thing that grinds my gears, while I’m at it: there should be unlimited tabs), and I click on a link — well, it really grinds my gears if that link opens a new tab/window that pushes/nudges/shoves/forearm-shivers one of my pre-existing tabs/windows — yeah, that really grinds my gears.

You know what doesn’t grind my gears: when I clicked on a link and a pop-up prompt came on the screen and asked something to the effect of, “This link will open a new tab, would you like to proceed?”

I was so taken aback with surprise and joy that I could’ve felt what I think is total nirvana, or an iota of what god is — then I remembered my cable bill and the tragedy that the Dos Santos/Overeem fight might not happen: back to earth.
