Live from the Apple Store
So the attempts to wait 24 hrs to restart did NOT restore the computer back to full working order. I made an appointment at the nearest store and prepped for attempting to be vague and demand expedited repair.
Except, we arrived a few minutes late.
And we'd never been to this outdoor retail space.
And just the day before, my new freelance gig had casually mentioned that I would need to BYOL - Bring Your Own Laptop.
So when we walked out of the store with a new appointment scheduled. And then Erik decided to mumble something along the lines of:
WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE ON THURSDAY
and then my brain exploded and I contemplated divorce.
And then I marched back into the Apple store and secured a stand by appointment and when MARIA "The BEST Apple employee ever" called my name and I came 100% clean. Threw my cards all out on the table and slid all my chips into her hands. It's damaged. Needs repair. Orange Juice. Divorce.
It's been about half an hour. And she replaced the battery and it is working and maybe, just maybe we'll all live happily ever after.
