Yesteday, I sat down with my computer and cup o' tea prepared to pen another witty and insightful post when holy shit, my tea spilled all over my ibook. Thank goodness for the Geniuses at the Apple Store. Otherwise, I would been Best Buy bound and I hate that store: the noise, the invisible sales associates, the high concentration of teenagers. It's just plain bad.
I had a sinking feeling about the ibook's prognosis (was that a sizzle?), which was confirmed by my assigned genius. The bad news: I needed a new logic board. The good news: my genius gave me a break on the replacement cost. He must have recognized my big Mac brain or maybe it was the look of desperation in my eyes. Lesson learned: Tea + iBook = Disaster x $100.
Another lesson I learned is idiots should not use computers. The guy before me had an old iMac that required something. I really don't think anything was wrong with his computer, but rather he had somehow lost all his brain cells and ability to operate in a computer literate world. Seriously, the guy did not know the difference between 256 RAM and 512 RAM. Okay, kids. All together, now: 512 RAM is twice as much as the other one, you f****** idiot. Even my five year old knows that this number is bigger than that one. Ay-yi-yi. It's people like that guy who prevent me from ever sharing my Mac genius with the rest of the world. If you can't navigate MAC OS, then you are a special kind of stupid and there is no hope for you.
