Scene: Me writing awesome post about x, y, z because co-worker was busy and I'm ahead on my work. Co-worker suddenly appears at my desk. I hit the minimize button.
Me: Blah, blah, blah."
Co-worker: Blah, blah, blah,.
Me: x-ray craft this, script that, PowerPoint the other thing.
Co-worker: x-ray craft this, script that, PowerPoint the other thing.
More blah, blah, blah then lunch. Then more blah, blah, blah. Finally maximize Weebly. Continue post. Look over what I read and realize I need to hyphenate a word. Click at the spot, hit the hyphen key and get taken out of the editor.
Weebly: You have to hit save dumass.
Me: One, I forgot you stopped auto saving drafts. Two, why isn't there a way to save my progress without exiting the post? I hate the way save closes everything out, then I have to go back into my drafts folder and open it up again.
Weebly: You shouldn't write your posts in Weebly. You should write it in Word... oh, wait there are copy and paste issues with Word. Make friend with Notepad.
Me: (Hangs head in shame.) I've had five or six good posts deleted. Maybe more.
Weebly: Then you should know better by now.
Me: (Sighs and thinks of the wonderful 1500 blog post just eaten by Weebly idiosyncrasies.) Yes, sir. I will remember.
