Bad day is getting worse

Frustrated me

Dropped off the computer. I’ll probably be $100 to figure out the problem as $49.95 only covers testing hard drives and memory. The tech agreed that it’s probably not either of those if the computer won’t even get to the BIOS.

Now I’m on the WiFi at the Smart Center getting my 2nd year annual maintenance on the Smart car. Turns out that year two runs about $450 instead of about the $150 year one maintenance cost. (Yes, my fault. I didn’t ask when I made the appointment.) However, I do have a 10% discount coupon so that will help a little.

I need coffee. I’m sure there’s some around here somewhere.

Oh, and did I mention that the dish washer died yesterday? (That’s why we were playing with the circuit breaker yesterday.) This is going to be a long week.
