A 31-YEAR-MAN has expressed deep frustration at his failure to make the cursor disappear while watching a film on his laptop.
Stephen Malley found himself unable to enjoy The Conjuring because of a little black arrow mocking him from the edge of the screen.
He said: ”No matter how many times I brush the touchpad or double-click or even restart the computer, the cursor remains, like in an Edgar Allan Poe story where somebody is haunted by guilt.
“Whatever prompted whoever designed this laptop to implement a cursor that will never – fucking never – disappear?”
Hayes’s girlfriend has repeatedly told him to ignore it and concentrate on the film, but he is unable to do so.
He added: “I could of course end this nightmare by taking my own life, but I’m afraid that even in death the cursor would haunt me still, distracting me from the boundless glories of Heaven by adamantly refusing to ever fuck off.”
The cursor subsequently disappeared for a few seconds, only to resurface right in the middle of the screen.
