Before Internet, there were men like these. Yum. :)
Well, after too, but just saying...
I do love the Internet. I need to fix my laptop, so I went to Best Buy. They can't do it because they didn't have Lenovo when I purchased mine. Fine. I go to the Internet, look at service locations. Call one. They don't have computers anymore. Call another. They can look at it but can't guarantee anything.
I drive out there and found out they're not there. They've moved. A couple of years ago. Phone number's still the same. Both companies were still listed as servicing Lenovo. So what is the problem?
What goes up on the Internet, stays up on the Internet, forever, and ever, and ever.
So some is good stuff, important stuff, great for being a real help. Some is plain old outdated garbage. Long story short? Call the company and find out: Do they do what they say they do? And are they still located where they say the are located?
To make a long story short, before the Internet, I would have had to call the company on the paperwork I have for the product. Now, I can use the Internet. If it's not too outdated, that is!
And no, I did not make it in time to go to the right place! It was an hour in the opposite direction and would have been closed by the time I arrived there. I have to say it was an interesting drive. Saw tons of horse farms, cattle ranches, and even a llama lying in the dirt looking sleepy. Now, it'll be probably two weeks before I can get the laptop to the right place.
And no laptop for all that time. It's amazing how we rely on our gadgets to keep us going!
Have a super day! Off to work for me...
