Hey, You!

Look, I know your intentions are good. You're just trying to make a writer's life easier. But the programmer who made you is a presumptuous ass. You're mostly a decent word processor for writing documents, but there's one habit you've got that drives me crazy: it's when you try to finish the word I'm typing. Listen, if I wanted your freakin' input, I'd ask for it. Why must you keep on anticipating what I'm trying to tap out here? I've been in this game long enough not to need the help of a so-called "killer app" (you thought I was going to type "application" again, bastard). Leave me the hell alone, or I'll scramble your bloody code.
