Techo Angst

Yesterday I dropped my phone like I do at least 8 times a week, and the screen shattered in a million pieces even though I have one of those dorky mom Speck cases with the lip around the edge.

I have Apple Care, so I figured the kids and I would run to the store and swap it out if repair was going to take too long.  I have done this before several times, so I didn't think it would be an issue.  I also checked first to see if there were any appointments.  But there weren't.  Until fucking Wednesday.

The kids and I included harry, by the way, who has stopped puking but has a fever, chills and body aches but had to go with us to the Little Gym to watch Dorothy and Cooper's class.  He isn;t coughing or expelling any sort of contagious fluids, and he feels fine with Tylenol, so I figured it was OK for him to sit in the lobby and play with this iPad.  No OK?  Waiting two fucking hours for an Apple Store walk-in appointment that would perfectly coincide with Jack needing to be picked up from school.

We all went home, and I planned to swing by on my way to campus and see if I could drop off my phone or get in virtual line for an after work appointment.  OF COURSE I got in line only to be texted that it was my turn when I was in the middle of a meeting 30 minutes away.  I planned to stop by AGAIN on my way home, but it snowed really bad and I didn't want to be skulking around the mall until 9pm.

So I have a broken phone, a Thursday appointment and plans to stalk the Apple Store and then do some work at a Starbucks across the street after I teach my class and go to meetings meetings meetings.  Because Wednesday?  Means I'll have 4 damn kids along.

I mena, you guys.  I have a busted phone and I don;t care how much they charge me to fix it.  I'll even get a new one-- JUST FIX MY FUCKING PHONE ALREADY.  It reminds me of the time my washer broke and I had to wait 5 days for a new one even though I wasn't even being a little bit picky.  Oompa Loompa.  Right now.  Etc.

On the plus side, The Little Gym was adorable, and I would show you a picture, but my computer is completely full and nothing more will download.  FML.
