Working on the laptop all day, I want a word for when my cursor (pointer) just keeps going on its own even though my hand is nowhere close to the laptop mouse controls. Profanity is fine!
Note that I have only witnessed this phenomenon when using the native mousepad or mouse control button on a laptop. If I plugged in a regular usb mouse this wouldn't happen. I have not noticed this on tablets yet. But I have had at least 20 laptops and happened with all of them.
Usage: Coworker - "What is taking so long?" Me - "F*cking mouse thing, wait a minute."
Would like to have a phrase to replace "F*cking mouse thing."
