When they go dead EXACTLY, when I had to give a critical reply to critical question during an argument with mates/Boss at work. (who are in other locations)

This has happened multiple times now. These type of chats we make is like the punches exchanged inside a boxing ring.

When you don't reply on time. (Damn, it has to be real time) A minute you delay, people sum it up like, 3,2,1, K.O! And get over the rings to announce the Winner. It's insane! Smile | :)

I've suffered this often, so I carry a strip of rechargeable AA batteries wherever I go.
Today the battery in use, dies again. EXACTLY when I had to punch back. It just dies abruptly without any kind of beep or cursor slow down. It just went dead, right after an accusation was fired over me. It's like a missile coming down the trajectory. & people are waiting for me to respond.

Here, in my room, I was just pulling off the old battery and taking the ones from the strip. WTF! All of them dead. ALL of them! One by one like AK-47 rifle with fully of dummy bullets. 0 charge. And a fanatically blinking *Reload* *Reload*. I don't know how on earth they all got discharged. And finally I had to run in search of the tailed mate, that was deep buried under the e-rubble, long ago. It did help! Smile | :)

Whenever I return like this after a few seconds 'unexplained' wait, I'll be returning like Popeye-after-the-spinach. DAMN EM ALL with a backlog of punches in one go. Big Grin | :-D

Starting to think people post kid pics in their profiles because that was the last time they were cute - Jeremy.
