A couple weeks ago Maddie and I were shopping at Gateway and decided (after much pleading on her part) to go inside so she could get a laptop case. Since I was already there and had to wait in line with her, I figured I might as well pick up a much needed pink sleeve for my iBook.
I got home and found it was the wrong size. Which was sort of annoying since the salesperson helping me had looked up the exact dimensions of my computer and recommended that size. But whatever, I knew Marky and I would be down there the next day so returning it would be no big deal. And it wasn’t, I walked in and traded for what I was promised would be the perfect fit for my treasured Stella James.
Again, I got home and it was the wrong size… still way too big, and isn’t the point for the padded sleeve to be snug? When Ben and I went to see a movie a few days later we stopped to return it. While processing the return I asked the salesperson what it would take to get a sleeve that fit my computer. He looked at me and said, “You have to buy a new computer.” I laughed, but quickly realized he wasn’t kidding. “So you’re telling me I have to spend $2,000 to get a $30 sleeve to fit?” “Exactly,” he said. I wanted to tell him how ridiculous he was, but by this time Ben was getting the worried “My sister is going to FREAK OUT” face, so I let it go.
Since I refuse to buy a new computer it looks like I’ll be sleeveless this winter season.
