L’ordinateur a l’intelligence de celui qui s’en sert

We have only been back for a few days, and already Louis Catorze is causing utter mayhem and driving us round the bend. 

His connerie began on the very evening of our return, when he goaded poor Oscar the dog so badly that we, Dog Mamma and Dog Sister had to go out and intervene before blood was spilled. And, on Monday, he walked across my laptop, causing me to submit my enhanced disclosure application before I had proofread it. 

For those who don’t work in education: this is the highly important process that informs one’s employer whether or not one has a criminal record, so it’s safe to say that it really, really needs to be done properly. Worryingly, after Catorze pressed/kicked “Submit”, I received no error message indicating incomplete or invalid information, meaning that everything written thus far had some sort of logical sense. Whether or not it was correct or desirable is another matter. 

So, at best, I may have entered an incorrect passport or driving licence number and will look like a dodgy fraudster when this is detected. And, at worst, I may have mistakenly clicked “Yes” to the question asking about crimes against children. I guess I won’t know until my application has been processed and my employer contacts me to ask me to explain myself. 

Here is the little sod, pictured not long after the incident and having also dribbled on Cat Daddy’s newspaper. Shits given: zéro.

        1. He isn’t interested in lap time with me. He likes boys. He’d be better off trying to get Cat Daddy fired instead of me!


          1. Ah, some friends in a nearby village were adopted by their seventh feline, Boris, who prefers daddy as does James who has been with them since a kitten. Boris is such a love but James only has paws for daddy.

  1. As excuses for dodgy submissions go, let’s hope whoever talks to you about it is a cat lover 😉 Bless the little sod xxxxx

  2. Our Human Mommy sometimes works from home. She always shoos us away from her keyboard and even goes so far as to close her laptop when she leaves the room! Harrumph! We would do love to help her the way the Roi helps you. Ronronnements, Quicksilver et al

  3. Walking across keyboards is absolutely forbidden in our house. Of course, there were some disagreements at first, about who makes the rules… and though I’m willing to accept differing opinions on some issues, in this case I used a rolled up newspaper for emphasis. Nice post.
