Your quirky little error messages aren’t cute

So you’re doing work on the computer and a message pops up:

“Oops, there’s been an error. Maybe such and such will help.”

It’s not cute nor does it display a personality other than annoying. Yes, it’s on WordPress too, every time I try to view a new post! It makes me wish for the days of “This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down”. Yes, as a kid I genuinely thought that the police would be notified despite the computer not being connected to the internet.

But it’s still better than this rubbish. The last thing I want when I encounter an error, especially a major one, is the computer being all bright and chipper. “Oops, your USB drive has been reformatted. Sorry about that.” I try to keep the blog 12A but there’s really two words for that: Fuck and You.
