I am in computer....

caca...or for those of you with less sensitive ears....shit...and for those of you with a little imagination and a potty mouth "F*&^^* stupid computer....%^*&^&%$#_ what the ^^%%$>

OK so let's back the bus up!

Last Friday it was suggested by an evildoer, that my life would be oh so much better with a laptop...hmmm! I agreed...and for that I deserve 20 lashes with a wet noodle...

I don't want to go into great detail, cause it's kind of boring but mostly embarrassing at my lack of computer knowledge. I paid good money to have my computer all set...all I had to do was turn it on...well I can turn it on, that's about it.

Telus tells me it's not their fault and they,the folks I bought my computer from, tell me that privacy laws prohibits them from helping further than my password, of course when I bought the computer and paid for the "full service" nothing like that was ever mentioned....here we go potty mouth...&*&*^%% them all. I wonder whose fault it is, mine I guess for being stupid!

And no pictures either....why? because this is a laptop, and because it moves with me, the thingamajig, the cord, that gets pictures from my camera to my computer is now lost, it could be anywhere...

So many other things wrong with this laptop....I just want to &&^%$

Anyway, martini number 2, a huge plate of penne with cream sauce, eaten with a spoon...well it's cream sauce you know...it's helping...the computer is not too bad, still no pictures.

Oh...I forgot to mention...I called the %%&** computer people, and gave them heck, told them they better help me or the whole thing is going back...."please come in right away, we will get this all sorted out"....I didn't go...honestly I was only thinking of their safety....

"Telus tells ..... me that privacy laws prohibits them from helping further than my password".

That's a crock Margaret - remote support is a routine thing in computerland. I've had it done several times, in fact Shaw did it for me just 2 weeks ago. They're feeding you a bunch of #%@*^ because they don't want the hassle.

Oh I know where you're coming from! We just missed being educated in the computer world and,therefore, must limp along relying on other intelligence to help us through.La marde,it sucks. If it's any consolation my children work with computers and say the constant changes that occur make it impossible for anyone to fix their own problems without assistance.Just put a smile on your face and go visit that computer geek.....let him do his thing. It's not like you're the first irate customer he will see.......When I tried to comment here I was told that my cookies were not active.Ha What do they know about my cookies?

Oh, my, you poor thing - such frustration. But don't martinis help?! Hopefully your new laptop has a card slot where you can insert the SD card from your camera to get your pictures uploaded. In time you will love your laptop - truly you will. Hang in there!

Cream sauce makes everything better. I hope you get it figured out soon.

Go into the store and speak directly to the person who sold you the computer. Simply have them bend over. Shove the computer in a special secret and dark spot.

On a much more important note -what kind of martinis were you drinking?!

There's nothing worse than a computer that doesn't cooperate. We have become so dependent on them for so many things. I love my laptop, but it has been with me for two years now so all the bugs have been worked out. - Margy
