the hits just keep on coming*

And so as if the laptop issue wasn't bad enough...

I dropped my digital camera today, the LCD is cracked.

You know, the one I bought in DECEMBER?

If there's one thing I can't live without more than my laptop, it's my camera.

Off to Best Buy again, if I can muster enough courage to face them...again.

*So I went to a different Best Buy than the one I went to, um, Monday and Tuesday for the laptop, cause I'm chickenshit like that.
The Geek Squad guy takes a look at it and goes, "You dropped it, didn't you?" I go, "Noooo. It must've hit against something in my purse?" (quite unconvincingly, in my opinion). So then he says, "Okay, if it's in the system, we'll send it in for repairs, and if it's not, we'll give you a new one and say it was defective." Because I needed to get the last word in, I asked him, "Defective? Is that kinda like 'wink, wink, nudge, nudge?" cause it was very obviously my fault, not a manufacturing defect.

So it wasn't in the system, and bing bam boom, I got a spankin' new one.

I hope this experience is indicative of how smoothly things will go for the laptop repair. Best Buy has gone up in my estimation after this!


  1. I'm so glad that things are turning around! I know the depressed feeling of losing a loved electronic =)

  2. Hey... I tried commenting last night... but stupid blogger wouldn't let me. Soooo... this is what I said...

    "Poor Bee... I need to find you a lucky four leaf clover don't I?"

    Well... it looks like you found the four leaf clover on your on! ;)
