Supernatural Gen Drabble: Everyday Curses (PG) for Elanurel  
Title: Everyday Curses
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Bobby (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: This is not one of Bobby's better days…
Author's Notes: Happy belated birthday to elanurel! Sorry I was gone on your special day, but I hope this helps make up for it.
Also for 100_ghosts, this is "Murphy's Law."

x-x-x-x-x

What was it about Winchesters that made them call at the worst times? Bobby dropped the wall phone immediately, its Caller ID showing "Dean" on the way to death by wet hands and the kitchen floor.

"What?" he barked into the cell seconds later. "Wenatchee? Have to look it up." He trudged to the computer in the den.

Blue screen. Crap! He rebooted it, waiting for—

"Goddamnit, you're out of warranty, you son-of-a-bitch!"

Picking up the phone, he re-powered the computer in desperation. "Not now, son—computer's dead, sorry."

Wait—that smell. Something's burning.

"Damnit!"

Great. So much for dinner.

The Winchesters he has to put up with!

The poor guy spends days alone with no-one to bother him, and then one little phone call and the house chokes up an dies on him. ;)

I resemble this comment.
:D Sometimes, I think life is just waiting to get us, no matter who we are! ;)

Haha! For some reason, I assumed that was a midwestern/Oklahoma-ish city. :0 I'm sure Bobby knew it was in Washington; he just wanted to look up the details on the case. ;)

I heard a carnie describe the county fair rides as "spendy" and I thought of you. It's been so long since I've heard anyone use that term, and I knew right away that the guy was a Northwest native. I don't say it anymore, after I crashed a meeting by using it. :0

LOL!! poor Bobby. He takes so much crap from those boys.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on August 18th, 2008 05:36 am (UTC)
Even when they're not doing anything in particular, it still turns out badly for Bobby! :D

Oh the ending was totally giggle worthy and brought a smile to my face. Poor Bobby.

Cute little piece, thanx for sharing. =)

All it takes is one little trigger, and the Winchester shockwave travels a path of destruction through the poor man's life. :0

Glad you liked it!

*snickers*

Poor Bobby. *pets him* He'd probably have far less stress in his life if not for the Winchesters.

Cute drabble. :)

:D ALL the Winchesters, starting with John and then working on down. Even though he gets along with the boys better, Dean and Sam have found new methods of grief AND heartache that I'm sure were worse than John just being a cantankerous pill. ;

Poor Bobby. *will not snicker or laugh as I've dealt with Blue Screen, and burnt dinner (yes at the same time...)*

Love the domino effect just the sound of the Winchester's voice has on Bobby's whole life. This was really... not sure if 'cute' is the right word... adorable? Yeah that'll work.

I think the first one easily leads to the second! :0 The Blue Screen is mesmerizing in the awfulness of where things might end up for a computer-- other concerns tend to fade into the background until it's resolved or the owner has given up.

Love the domino effect just the sound of the Winchester's voice has on Bobby's whole life.
Hee! I forgot that there was no summary when I initially posted it, and in trying to think of the right description I almost went with one using the domino effect! Just one phone call, and the rest of the day is doooomed. :0

Bobby dealing with the Blue Screen of Death - what a great image!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on August 18th, 2008 05:19 pm (UTC)
:D It's possible that runes and spells might be the most successful way to fix it too, considering!
art_savageart_savage on August 18th, 2008 05:47 pm (UTC)
Dude, if you're dealing with Microsoft, there's DEFINITELY some black magic involved! ;)

aw Bobby, such a good friend!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on August 18th, 2008 11:32 pm (UTC)
To all the wrong people, apparently! Just knowing them is its own curse. ;)
Ruth: Laughjust_ruth on August 18th, 2008 11:09 pm (UTC)
Because both their middle names are 'Murphy'.

Great story!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on August 18th, 2008 11:32 pm (UTC)
They're disaster in the making for other people as well as themselves. Bobby must feel SO lucky. ;)

Glad you liked it!

Poor Bobby-- one bad thing triggers a boatload of others, and then Bill Gates steps in for the killing blow. ;)

Thanks for reading!

*twirls you*

It's lovely! Thank you so much! ;-P

You're welcome-- I hope the birthday was wonderful, and cakealicious. :)

It was a cakealicious week, actually. ;-P

Even better! Mmmmmmm, cake...

Now *how* the hell did I miss seeing this on my flist? *shakes head*

Well, now I've seen - and I LOVE! ROTFL, oh, dear, you know Bobby has to've had moments just like this. As much as those boys call? *snicker*

All that's missing is the one where he drops the phone in the spaghetti sauce he'd just been stirring ... *G* Delightful!
Cheers ~

:D I'm thinking John contributed to that as well, back in the day.

The Winchester-related dead-phone count! Rollcall, please! :D

Glad you found this one. :)
