There are two things that have really been irritating me lately. The first is an issue with my Mac computer. About once or twice a day the Mac mail freezes up and I have to do a hard start to get it to work again. My IT company has looked at briefly but did not get it fixed. So I take it to the Apple store today and got surprisingly quick service as I did not have an appointment. I could have gotten an appointment but it would have been 8:00 PM tonight. No thank you, I do not do West Town Mall at night by myself. They could not get it to replicate what I was telling them but they did do something that that thought would fix the problem. Don’t ask me what because most of this is Greek to me. I am back at work and keeping my fingers crossed that the fix is in and I won’t have anymore problems. I did look at new computers while I was there since mine is a 2011. They did comment that my computer was in good shape and is quick to open for its age. Since I am of a certain age, older computers do not bother me unless they don’t work. It seems the new models do not have a lot of things that my current computer has such as USB ports, ethernet ports, etc. So if I got a new computer I would have to buy, wait for it, adapters to make all of that work. That would total around $120.00. Why don’t they just put them in the computer and charge me for them? While I am on the subject of Mac computers, I have a pet peeve. I use folder for my customers and I sort the emails so that I can go back and reference what I have done on their print/mail projects. Mac computers does not alphabetize those folders, they must be done manually. Apple has come up with so many innovative things and they can’t alphabetize my folders. What??
The second that has been irritating me is two big scratches on my prescription sun glasses, right in the center. Now this is the first prescription sun glasses that I have ever had and I thought I was really taking care of them. Apparently not. So I go to see about the scratch and I thought maybe they could just polish the scratch off. Wrong. A new lens is require.
I was determined to get these two issues fixed today, so I am hoping that the Apple store got my email issue fixed and I definitely have the sun glass issue fixed. I was pleasantly surprised that Apple did not charge me for working on my computer, no so with the sun glasses, ouch.
