My new Future Shop boyfriend:
- asked me if my laptop was still working alright instead of declaring that he had to send it in to do an analysis
- said I could keep my laptop while he ordered me a new cord (on warranty)
- let me keep my old cord until my new one arrived, even though he could get into trouble for that, and I only had to plead a little bit
- served me during pauses while also serving an earlier customer
I have found the store that I will deal with from now on. I was so pleased that I bought a bunch of blank cds that I didn't even need.
The cord that my Future Shop boyfriend allowed me to keep has now died a final spectacular death. With sparks and everything! I admit I was afraid to turn the laptop back on after quickly shutting it down last night when the cord started sizzling, but it seems to have escaped any catastrophe.
It has one hour of battery time left. It's probably a good thing that the Resident Offspring heads back to school Monday after almost two weeks of exam break, otherwise there would be some serious territorial wars surrounding the PC.
