New Apple Lap top - driving me CRAZY!!!!!!
Ok, so life is so difficult when you have Lupus, then you are told that you are getting a new lap top.... YIPPEEEEEE ..... then the excitement seems to disappear rather quickly .... EEEEKKKKKKKKK ..... Apple ........ (insert any word you like here)
So I sneak out my old lap top and write up all my programmes. I also make sure that I have my new Apple lap top open on my desk,just for appearances, but just hidden in front of it is my old lap top so I can actually get some work done.
Sometimes my principal walks into my classroom and sees me working on my old lap top and "Why aren't you using your new Apple lap top" ... "umm" I say, very nervously "I have it over on the bench there so I can use it with the projector for my lesson". Just as well he can actually see that I am telling the truth because he can see it on the screen.
Yesterday my Principal came into my class before school and asked me to quickly take my lap top up stairs for a staff meeting and connect it up to the projector to show the other teachers some things. He said the other teacher is having problems connecting hers up. I ask him "do you want me to take up the lap top that I know how to use or the one I don't know how to use" "take your old one up" my principal says. So I suspect he knows that I am having trouble using my new Apple (rotten apple) lap top.
My principal has seen me use the old lap top a number of time ... and just gives me 'the look'. Ok so this week, I locked my old lap top in the filing cabinet, and look down at it very sadly every day. I think I might even tape some flowers on the drawer, like you put on a coffin (sniff sniff). It is Thursday night, and I am still grieving over the loss of my lap top, and have tried to embrace my new gift. But I am loosing the battle. I have tried so hard to bond to my (insert any word you like here) Apple. I even stroke it and tell it is is so pretty and clean. (insert some pathetic sounding words here to describe how pathetic I am sounding).
Well, I have something to ask you, (insert any word that relates to stealing, theft, aggressively smashing the Apple here) I am going to give up teaching before I admit to my principal that I really cannot get the hang of the new lovely (insert any word that is opposite to lovely here) Apple, so I really need to know if there is a web site that has a very comprehensive manual that I can print off so I can start using my new lovely (insert any words you like) Apple lap top and feel as though I have achieved something.
I really do appreciate the new lap top, it is a pretty white colour, and has a really cool Apple that lights up on the lid when you use it. But come on, I have to get on with my life. You know what is worse than having Lupus ???? Having an Apple laptop, and what is worse than having an Apple lap top, being caught using a real lap top .....
RIP my old lap top. . . . . .
