Thanks to Theo Spark for this wonderful little story:
Dear Technical Support,
About 18 month ago, I upgraded to GirlFriend(tm) 1.0 from DrinkingMates(tm) 4.2,which I had used for years without any trouble. However, there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run GirlFriend(tm) 1.0 with the sound turned off.
To make matters worse, GirlFriend(tm) 1.0 is incompatible with several other applications, such as BoysNightOut© 3.1, Football© 4.5, FlashCar(tm) 2.5 and Playboy© 6.9. Successive versions of GirlFriend(tm) proved no better. I tried a shareware program, Slapper(tm) 2.1, but it had many bugs and left a virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.
Eventually, I tried to run GirlFriend(tm) 1.2 and GirlFriend(tm) 1.0 at the same time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each other, they cause severe damage to my hardware. I eventually upgraded to Fiancée(tm) 1.0 only to discover that this product soon had to be upgraded further to Wife(tm) 1.0. While Wife(tm) 1.0 tends to use up all my available resources, it does come bundled with FreeSexPlus and CleanHouse 2007. Shortly after this upgrade, however, I found that Wife(tm) 1.0 could be very unstable and costly to run. Any mistakes I made were automatically stored in Wife(tm) 1.0’s memory and could not be deleted. Then they resurfaced months later when I had forgotten about them. Wife(tm) 1.0 also has an automatic Diary, Explorer and E-mail filter, and can, without warning launch TurboStrop and Whinge. These latter products have no Help files, and I have to try to guess what the problem is. Additional problems are that Wife(tm) 1.0 needs updating regularly, requiring ShoeShopBrowser for new attachments and HairStyleExpress which needs to be installed every three weeks. Wife(tm) 1.0 also spawns unwelcome child processes that are a heavy drain on my resources. Also, when Wife(tm) 1.0 attaches itself to my Audi TT hard drive, it often crashes. Wife(tm) 1.0 also comes with an irritating pop-up called Mother-In-Law, which can’t be turned off.
Recently I’ve been tempted to install Mistress(tm) 2007, but there could be problems. A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if Wife(tm) 1.0 detects Mistress(tm) 2007, it tends to delete all of your Money before uninstalling itself.
I think he’s got it figured out…..
