Once again, people are knocking at my door demanding I return their computers.

    How many of you can relate?
    You are the one person in family/circle that can fix computers so they drop their malware infected shit off and then come back every day asking if its done.

    Today its my girlfriends brother.
    He just pulled away.

    Why am I always compelled to stand up and crouch when they come?

    Lately its the girlfriends family.
    We gave her nephews some old workstations for xmas last year... they muck them and fuck them up constantly.

    "WHY DON'T THIS GAME PLAY?"
    "Like I told you, this is a workstation, not a gaming machine; just for youtube and surfing the net"
    "STEAM WORKS AND I DOWNLOADED IT WHY WONT IT WORK?"
    "Because fuck you"

    I fixed my in-laws laptop recently. He recovered the hard drive for some reason and shit stopped working. He got it back when I was good and ready.

    everything I touch lately falls apart.
    these are ancient dell workstations from an accounting company. like, 2005 models.
    They have these adorable little wind up processors that blow out steam when they get hot!

    I have found that phrase to be considerably dangerous.

    This was the second time he gave it to me. He bought it refurbished and it didn't work right from the start.

    if they can get them on the internet, i log on remotely and fix them that way. i no longer allow friends or family to bring by computers or go to their houses to fix them. shit got a little out of hand.

    i'm a soft touch and i help out everyone who asks. i do have a policy of asking them if they have the box that i came in. they will ask why and i will say, "because you are too stupid to own a computer". now, when i am asked to work on them, they will say, "don't ask if i have the box, you fucker".
