In college, Stella lost and got her groove back twice. People undermined her potential and underestimated her abilities, but she proved them all wrong. I felt particularly protective of her since the incident that led her to lose her mojo the first time and indirectly hampered it the second time, was my fault.
I knew better than to drink water near her, but we had just pulled an all-nighter together, working on a paper, and I was not thinking clearly. I still see it happening in my mind’s eye in slow motion: standing to stretch my legs, I get a cup of water, only to have it inexplicably fall out of my tired hand and drench poor Stella. An overly bearded, beneficent young man who smelled strongly of patchouli oil revived her when I rushed her to his office, but there was little he could do beyond that and Stella was never quite the same. Although she recovered, residual effects of her ordeal presented themselves about six months later when she had to have some of her parts replaced. She persevered, though, and stayed with me a few more years, before finally retiring.
After watching Stella’s struggle, I learned the importance of investing in a computer warranty. When Ella came into my life, I honored Stella by purchasing a laptop extended warranty to ensure that if she and water ever had an unfortunate encounter, I would be able to properly restore her to her former glory.
When I bought my laptop, I bought a laptop warranty, even though I was a student and didn’t have that much money. I mean, if I was going to buy a thousand dollar computer, I might as well pay a little bit extra and know that whatever happens I’ll keep my laptop.
After about a year of using my laptop to my heart’s extent I was skateboarding to the cafe one day (yes I skateboard, and yes, I skateboard the six blocks to the cafe with my laptop in my backpack) when my worst fear was realized.
I’ve often thought about how horrible it would be to get hit by a car with my laptop in my bag. Not because I’d wind up in the hospital or anything, but because my computer would, well… Anyway so I’m skating right past this corner when a car comes out of nowhere as another parked car opened its door. To avoid getting doored I skated right into the other car, and he hit me, nicking the tail of my skateboard and throwing me head over heels. As I feared, I wasn’t hurt, but my latpop was. Screen cracked. Wouldn’t even turn on. I contacted www.ElectroWarranties.com and got a new laptop, no problem.
I knew that electronics warranty would come in handy.
My dad was never one to get the insurance on an item. It’s a rip-off he’d say.
Needless to say, when he bought an iPad he didn’t opt for an iPad warranty. He was so excited. He walked around with it in his hand talking about how tablets will soon replace laptops. He demonstrated for everyone its light weight and interface ease.
Then I came home from school one day and his iPad lay on the kitchen table, its face broken. I couldn’t help but laugh a gasp of surprise. I found my mom and asked her what had happened. She said that he had dropped it. That’s it, I asked. That’s it, she said.
I couldn’t help feeling bad for my dad. If he had just bought an iPad warranty he wouldn’t have been as morose as he was that night at dinner, his face long and shadowed. It cast a pallor over the entire meal.
If only he had bought that iPad warranty. The price he wound up paying for his new iPad was about as much as he would’ve paid had he bought all the missed electronic warranties throughout his life. Next time he’ll go with www.ElectroWarranties.com.
Now he knows his lesson.
Electronics are made to break. The ol’ planned obsolesence. You know, this year the iPhone has a new camera! It’s updated and slicker than ever. Until next year, when they update it again.
Part of this is due to Moore’s Law, which states that approximately every 18 months a new generation of technology is born. On one hand it’s nice for the consumer to have new options every year and a half, but sometimes, it doesn’t really matter–the upgrades are minimal and not worth it, especially after you’ve already invested a small fortune just last year. You want to keep your laptop a lot longer than 18 months–it was a thousand dollars! That’s where an electronics warranty comes in.
With an electronics extended warranty you don’t have to worry about your laptop breaking on you, unless you don’t back up your data regularly. All you have to do is take care of it as you normally would and if anything goes wrong, you’ll be covered. This way you don’t have to spend excessive amounts of money trying to keep up with the joneses, or hoping that your laptop will break so you have the chance to waste money on a new one. With a laptop warranty from www.ElectroWarranties.com, buy good, have good, and if an accident happens, you’re covered.
You leave for a nice weekend and tell the kids to behave. You come back relaxed and happy and the kids are happy to see you. Too happy. When you ask them what’s up, they tell you that the T.V. fell off the wall and cracked. At least they’re honest. Why did it fall? Oh, playing football in the house. Okay.
If you didn’t have a TV warranty you’d wring their necks. That 42 incher is still brand new and with football season six weeks away, a new TV of that caliber would have been a stretch. It’s a good thing you signed that electronics warranty, you knew in your gut it would come in handy. And with kids 12, 15, and 17, you knew that there would be plenty of opportunities for it to come into effect.
