Hatred of Dell Laptops, and a focus on a career.

Yesterday I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I have this dream where I wake up and I’m the only one in the world. Sounds fine to me except I have serious abandonment issues. That in and of itself is hilarious because I also have a lot of antisocial tendencies.

I’m a hot, psychological mess!

So, it’s pretty obvious that when I’m upset, nothing makes me feel better than a broken piece of laptop equipment. My AC adapter for my Dell Inspiron 1545 is shot and I’m now waiting on a new cord. After going round and round with their customer service, they decided to send me a new cord. They wanted to tell me it was the battery that was fucked up and not the cord. See, they would know better because they’re way the hell on the other side of the world and I’m right fucking here looking at the cord that’s supposed to have a blue light on and there is no blue light!

Why are some people so painfully stupid? Whatever happened to the customer always being right?

This wasn’t the first time My wife and I have had to deal with Dell Stupidity. And yes, DELL Stupidity is it’s own kind of stupidity. Dell Stupidity takes up at least six hours on your cell phone and wastes precious time. Anyone can do it, but DELL Customer Support perfected it.
So here I sit and await my new cord. I type this on my Wife’s Dell Desktop which rarely has a problem. It’s funny their desktops are good but their laptops are complete plops of shit. I do not recommend Dell Laptops, they’re total pieces of crap.

Putting that aside, the job search continues.
I’m still applying anywhere and everywhere. I decided to make my career focus in loss prevention because no matter how bad the economy is, there are always going to be people who steal. That’s job security right there! The whole writing thing continues to be only a hobby and I can’t depend on it to pay my bills, fund trips to Vegas or San Diego or build up enough capitol to move out to California. It’s sad that I can’t do what I want to do, but at least I can train in a career where I get to take my dissatisfaction out on others.
Just kidding!
Or am I?

Your Dell laptop is a lemon and I have been telling Dell that over and over since we got it a year ago. We have had nothing but problems with that thing and have spent way too many hours on the phone with them. But thankfully it is now fixed again and hopefully that will be the end of the problems for awhile.
