Oh, technology.

I do love my computer. But some of the applications are as stupid as can be. Microsoft Word, is actually disagreeing WITH ITSELF over the construct of a word. I originally wrote 'well-being'. The green squiggly line came up under it, so with a swift right click I discovered that it recommended 'well being' instead. I thought this was reasonable replacement, and I usually bow to the wisdom of Word's grammar check. However, the moment I replaced the above word with the suggested replacement, a little green line appeared underneath, suggesting that I hyphenate the word again.

It disagrees with itself. I thought computers had to implode on such occasions. Or something.
