Due to time constraints and the typically high level of exhaustion I am working at, I can either stop writing or write when and what I can. Because I am so set on writing, I have decided to due just that and set aside time for myself to write what I can within a set time. These 295 words were wrought in the space of 10 minutes.
My phone screen in cracked!
I am typing this on a physical keyboard, which feels fantastic by the way, on my wife’s cheapo refurbished laptop she bought on Amazon months ago when a cat knocked down her previous laptop.
It is a little distressing how many pieces of tech the two of us have gone through, really. It bothers me to think how much we have wasted through our carelessness and lack of foresight. Then again, how were we supposed to guess that a kitten would knock her phone into it water dish from its perch atop the night table?
Anyway, I guess I am doing this as a little PSA, because I think more people should know about the benefits of getting insurance and I have a firsthand account to relate. Please note that my phone hasn’t been fixed, but I will be sure to update y’all if things don’t go well. I should know by Thursday at noon.
I have insurance through a company called Asurion. They work with Verizon and other cellphone carriers. They have a website that allows you to very easily submit a claim. The whole process probably took 10 minutes (cute, huh?) and the result is that for $30 dollars, I can have a technician come to my work and fix the screen for me. The part alone in over $200 dollars, so this is saving me a bunch of time and money. I am pretty excited about it. It is a pain to have to wait 3 days to get it fixed, but I think it is well worth the waiting for the savings and convenience.
Like I said, I am going to do a follow up on the actual service on Thursday or Friday, so you can look forward to that.
