Which is why I don't believe in the Lord! Here again, things seemed to be going pretty well both for the US economy and for me-I finally have a job, yes as my buddy Nanute points out, an entry level security guard job, but it's a start.
Don't get me wrong the economy is still going well. We got some more great numbers today-a bunch of indexes today were much higher than expected.
But wouldn't you know it-my laptop may now be destroyed. Last year in October or so I managed to leave my computer on a public bus-and against all odds and everybody telling me I likely had seen the last of it they had it for me at the lost and found.
After being so lucky, what should happen today than a friend of mine spilling water on it. It wasn't that much but it seems to have fried the keyboard. So I'm stuck again writing on a public library computer which only gives you a few hours.
I don't know. I don't want to be one of those people who comes down to hard on someone who makes an honest mistake. I've had my share of accidents in my time for sure. On the other hand I don't want to totally laugh it off-even if that's my nature as this really screws me. When you make under $300 a week after taxes it's not easy to come up with the money for a new computer that will likely be $400 or so. I'm going to look and see what it costs to fix it-my guess is probably at least $200-ie, at least half of just buying a brand new computer.
I don't want the guy to feel too bad-don't want to be one of those people who crucify you over an honest accident. But I guess bad enough that maybe he should at least help me with the costs. He did say something about if it's like "fifty dollars" going half and half-yeah right. Where does it cost $50? So he's offering $25?
Maybe if he can agree to $100 or so. In any case this may cut into my production for a little while to I figure something out.
