another pet peeve of mine
January 26, 2007
I am still without my computer.
I have pretty much taken over my 10yr old son’s computer. I have the internet password protected on it, which basically means that he is unable to go anywhere on the web without my approval. It is a pain in the ass. But considering that he is really into Houdini and various escape artists, and has tried to google websites about “being tied up in chains,” it is for the best.
My husband brought my laptop to the IT guy at his office who fixes computers in his spare time. For a tidy sum of money I might add. Rob asked him on Monday morning when a good time would be for him to look at it. He said, “Any day this week would be fine.”
Maybe it’s just me, but I take that to mean, “I am free to work on it whenever you bring it to me. No need to specify a day. I have nothing else going on this week.”
He has had it for four days now. As of right now, the laptop has not left his office.
Now he says he won’t be bringing it home this weekend. And asked Rob if I’d like it back for the weekend.
Uh, no. If it still worked it wouldn’t be there with you. It would be back here with me. In my loving arms.
I demanded that Rob ask him exactly what he is doing this weekend that would prevent him from working on my computer. I am sure I could rearrange his schedule accordingly. I do it for my husband all the time.
