I saw this on Twitter the other day ….
This would have been a very sad day in the life of readers everywhere… fortunately, he managed to scrape up enough pennies to buy a new mouse, so he didn’t have to retire after all!
But, it got me thinking about all the abuse our poor computers go through. I’ve been fortunate enough to have never completely ruined a computer – I do admit that periodically I need to have my husband blow out cat hair (our cat, D.C., loves to cuddle with the computer) and get out enough hair to build a second cat. And, one time while visiting our oldest daughter in North Carolina, our first first granddaughter, Mackenzie, pulled some of the keys off (they fit right back on, so no worries!!)
I have a friend who is no longer allowed to have anything to drink next to her computer unless it’s in a sippy cup. In one week, she spilled coffee not only on her laptop, but also on the laptop her daughter loaned her! (and the daughter is still talking to her–fortunately, she had bought insurance on both computers that cover acts of stupidity –she knows herself well!)
What about you? What are some ways you’ve heard of (or done yourself!) to mess up your computer?
