If killing electronics were a crime, I would have a life sentence.
I wish I could blame it on bad luck, but I am a klutz. Electronics have never been in my possession longer than three years – intact. If I don’t murder it, I lose them. To give a quick idea:
- My Treo 600 plunged to its death… from my unzipped purse to the sidewalk.
- The replacement, a Treo 650 drowned – it decided to go swimming. In a pool. Involuntarily.
- That replacement, the Treo 700p got flattened by a cab – after it jumped out of my grasp. Fine, I dropped it.
And phones aren’t the only victims.
- My first Macbook’s LCD cracked – a partition fell on it.
- That replacement, a Macbook pro was electrocuted – I spilled something on the keyboard and there were some sparks between the “W” and “E”.
…on and on the fatality list goes. If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll compile a complete dossier. ANYway, my current Macbook, I guard with my life, take care of, primp, and pamper. It has lasted a little over a year but there is one problem. Every single time I plug the AC into an outlet, there are sparks. SPARKS.
Am I doing something wrong? If someone – anyone knows the answer, please help. And please do not tell me I am being dramatic. Given my history, can you blame me?
Personally, I think the adapter is conspiring for redemption – given my past sins. It is gonna take one for the team – or attempting to.
