So today at work, my computer broke. I’ve only had this job for two weeks, and while the computer they gave me was around three years old and only around $500 when they first bought it, I still feel really bad.
Thankfully, they are being really nice about it, and letting me order a new machine. One that will hopefully last me another three years. Also, I hope to salvage some parts from the broken machine to set aside for repairs, since I have a good idea that the problem was most likely motherboard related (I couldn’t even run a live CD environment before the computer would just shut down).
I feel like all I’ve done since I got here is spend money… You’d think it would be a fun feeling because it is not my money, but it isn’t. Especially since part of the reason I was hired was to save the company money.
