Nothing boring about this

What, you ask?

How about having your new computer - you know - the once that cost $3000 and is less than six months old? That one! Right! How about having your new computer make a sound like a rabid squirrel trapped in a well - and then give you the finger:



All of you who said I was foolish to have so many computers? You people?

I think you can now see how wrong you were. Are. Were.

Whatever.

Nothing worse than a computer leaving you high and dry. Hope it is fixed soon!

NO EFFING WAY!!!!!! I feel your pain... it's under warranty, right? Is mercury in retrograde, or something??? My BFFs macbook just died on her, also...

I would cry. End of story.

Avitable said...

You do have a warranty? And, barring that, a large hammer?

I've got a Dell that's nearly 8 years old and still going strong. About the only fix I've ever had to do is add a new HD and move some files over 'cause the computer was crashing due to low disk space issues.

Good luck with your finger giving computer, Nina.

You just described my first sexual experience.

Nina said...

LizB, no. I think I broke my personal record for most profanities directed at a machine.

Urbanhippiemama, it is under warranty. Thank heavens.

Cajunvegan, I did. A lot.

Avitable, yes, it is under warranty. But I am still scared they will try to tell me it's all my fault somehow.

Utenzi, Once you get a mac you will wonder how you ever got along without one.

EA, she gave you the finger? That's not nice.

Effortlessly Average said...

Yeah, and she didn't lube it first. Ow.

I think I know that sound. First of all, I once had an honest to god rabid squirrel trapped in my apartment, between the widow and the security gate. It took two of New York's finest to get it out, while I was on the phone with an ex-boyfriend , screaming every time the grey menace moved at all.
2. My own laptop, a Toshiba, is making a frequent grinding noise whenever I move it. As I do not desire to choose sperm while at work, and the computie does odd guttural things every time I try to search while at home, I might just have to have sex this weekend instead. With a real live boy...
