I spend a lot time on Google Docs that I do my finest not to consider it. But I used to be compelled to in the present day — as a result of Google Docs is appearing bizarre.
There have been points. Firstly, I couldn’t choose any textual content on Google Docs. Secondly, a lot of this textual content was operating off the web page. The technical time period for this, I imagine, is “a shitter.”
On high of this, Google Sheets was layering textual content excessive of itself, making it not possible to learn something. And, I don’t find out about you, however studying tends to be a giant a part of my Google Docs Suite expertise.

I wouldn’t count on this challenge to final extra for much longer, I’d assume Google will repair it as quickly as attainable. This offers me simply sufficient time to stare within the mirror and query the life decisions that led me to spending most of my waking life on Google Docs.
The horror, oh god, the horror of all of it.
