Partner not understanding basic communication!

So I was in first seat and dealer picks up and goes alone in hearts. I held 1 trump (Card_10-D) (Card_9-D) and (Card_A-C) (Card_K-C) . So I lead the diamonds and it gets trumped of course. On 3rd trick I discard my (Card_A-C) to indicate to my partner I have clubs covered.

My partner in all her wisdom holding (Card_Q-S) (Card_J-S) and (Card_Q-C) decides to play one of her spades. Caller had (Card_A-S) and a low spade and got the loner because my partner is a fool. She then had no idea why I was mad at her and for the life of me I couldn't get it through her thick head. She should discarded (Card_Q-C) on same trick I played my ace.

It amazes me how somebody rated almost 2000 on euchre 3D is this stupid

Far too many players focus on their hand and ignore the cards played by their partner. They are unable to adjust their strategy to fit what’s played. This often results in missed opportunities, either to make a point or euchre the opponents.

Don't really see the point of the OP. Yes your partner F-ed up. You must be new to euchre if you think this is post worthy. All that matters is you played the hand well. You can't control anything else.
