Boy, I love Technology

Well I finally had my first mental breakdown this semester. I knew it was coming because I have been so stressed out. So along came Wednesday night...After a long day at work and a long night of homework ahead of me I went home and turned on my computer.. only to find out it had crashed! I was calm at first because I was hoping that it could be fixed with out a problem. Chase was in class so I could not call him and tell him what happend. So I went to the next best thing.. The Geek Squad at Best Buy. I figured they could fix anything but I was wrong. First they tell me that its damaged beyond repair and that there is nothing they can do. Then they told me I could maybe get it fixed by their sister company but for 1,600 hundred dollars! and even then it might not get fixed. I totally lost it, I had all my homework on there. I was in the middle of a huge paper that was due thursday and all my pictures, music, wedding address, and so on were on there. So, I broke down in Best Buy, called my mom, and for some reason the moment I start talking to my mom I cry even harder. The people working there were so rude to me and treated me like dirt. I hate Best Buy now! Anyways, I took my computer because there was no way I was going to pay that much and went home and broke down. But Chase came to the rescue. He called his old roommate and asked if he could look at my computer. An hour later it was fixed! I was soooo happy! How is it that The Geek Squad could not fix it but a college student could?? Thank goodness I have Chase!! He always knows what to do in sticky situations.. So now I encourage everyone to make sure they back up everything on their computer because you never know what could happen! The Hero!!!!

What a man! Actually... I think we need to give a little more credit where credit is due... and that is to his roommate! Chase was smart enough though to shack up with a computer wiz until he exchanges him for you :) Happy you got it all sorted out. What a horror story!

Oh no! I would have broke down too. Glad everything worked out!

Talk about stress! Why is it everything seems to pile up at once?? I am glad it got fixed--and at such a low price!

ps I LOVE your new blog design :)

Dana...you should know better than to support Best Buy. Christian and I boycott them because they are L-A-M-E. But I'm glad that Chase fixed your computer. That is the worse feeling when you think you are going to lose all of your work!

That would suck!!! I always try to back mine up but I forget a lot of things. I'm glad they could fix it! Boy I don't miss the homework days!

Oh my!! I was stressed just reading it. But, I am very glad there was a happy ending. I did not think there was going to be. That is my worst fear. It makes me want to back everything up right now!!! I am glad Chase and his roommate came to your rescue!
