Screen protector pop-up application needed.

A Hot-Key activated DON’T TOUCH THE SCREEN! pop-up message needed for those who not only point to items on my laptop screen, but cross the border and actually touch the screen!

I hate that.

I have the way-cool 3M privacy filter, but sometimes I remove it when others need to see screen content.  That’s when the screen pokers reveal themselves.

Are YOU a screen poker?  Then STOP THAT.

Usually, I move the screen away from ‘pokers’ and say, “I can’t believe you just jammed a fingerprint in the middle of my pristine 17″ LCD display!”

On the second offense, I re-install the 3M filter and say, “That’s the best $83 of protection I ever bought … so, sorry that you can’t see what you wanted to see, but I bought it because some people insist on poking my screen with their fingers”.

On the third offense, I shut the system down and say, “Sorry, I’ll mail you a print-out and we can discuss it next week.”

The $***(insert million dolllar number here)*** deal can surely wait a couple of extra days while I repair my
 screen.  After all, interest on a milion (at 6%) is only $164.38 per day.  Trashing my $1,700 screen with finger poking is 10 days in the penalty box.

So, what’s up with screen pokers, anyway?
