A True Confession



I would like to start this weeks posts with a true confession.

I did NOT get a Macbook.

Gasp!

Yeah, it’s true.

Allow me to preface what I’m about share by saying that I in no way see this as a reflection of Apple or their computers, because I still think they’re awesome and know that one day I will purchase one. Unfortunately, I didn’t go directly through a Mac Store when I was attempting my purchase, later realizing it was only an Apple Specialist Store.

To make a long story short and without mentioning any names, my second experience at the store was nothing like my first. And what’s really ironic is that my second experience was with the OWNER.

Let me just put it this way….

He was one of the most aggressive and pushy salesman, who was so full of shit that his green eyes turned brown as he desperately tried to force feed me handfuls of BULL. He basically tried to get me to purchase a more expensive model; pointing out everything negative about the Macbook.

I felt like saying, “You know, buddy…I masturbated before I went to bed last night, so I really don’t need another WHACK job right now.”

And it’s funny, because when I talked to him on the phone before our meeting, I kinda got a feeling about his personality when he said, “The salesman who helped you yesterday was good, however I’m the BEST.”

Gee…isn’t that a wonderful way for an owner to talk about one of his employees?

After our meeting I left the store feeling totally annoyed and frustrated, so I decided to take a few days to clear my emotions and then find the location of an actual Apple Store in my surrounding area.

I found one.

But for some reason, two days before I went there I walked into a Staples Office Supply Store to check out their laptop computers and discovered one that totally impressed me. And after doing some investigation, I decided to purchase it.

I believe in fate.

The laptop came fully loaded, and the memory and processor are awesome. It’s thin and lightweight, so it’s perfect to transport.

And the best part is that it runs Microsoft 7, which is fab-u-lous!

So, here’s my new laptop…..

HP Pavilion dm3-1130us
