You know what can make me cry tears of temperish vexation faster than anything and generally reduce me from a (mostly) rational adult to a tantrum-throwing 3-year-old?

Having to assemble furniture.

On this occasion, having to assemble a fan that one has carted home in a taxicab from one's local Target, in a large box that nonetheless did not indicate (or at least not in a sufficiently obvious fashion) that assembly would be required.

Add to that the reason one is purchasing this fan--i.e., it is extremely hot and muggy. At the time one is attempting to assemble this fan (well after dark), it is 80 degrees outdoors and hotter indoors.

Which is why one is purchasing a fan, as one's air-conditioning is broken and one's landlord is refusing to fix it in a timely manner (i.e. he has known about the problem for at least 2 weeks, maybe 3).

All of which pretty much causes one to want to howl and pound one's fists on the floor, or alternatively to wish that one had attended a high school offering something even vaguely reminiscent of shop class.
