I lurk a lot, complain once in a while, and just... lurk some more. You get some good stuff and, hey, you learn you might have it better. But no matter how grumpy I can be in real life, I try not to lash out at the people trying to, you know, help me!

Today, it was off to the computer repair store! Its a local business owned by a married couple and they've repaired stuff for years. They fixed my computer last year and its still running pretty good! I'm happy! This time, however, my mother's computer wasn't working and I was pretty certain if was from those dating websites she likes to hang out all the time - Even when I tell her not to and its potentially why her computer has so much trouble. 

Now her accounts keep getting compromised. 

:iconharuka21plz: Well, I tried.  She doesn't understand and welp, I did all I could to fix it. As annoyed as I am(and saving her from spending over 200 dollars from an "internet fix") - I pick up the desktop, drive over to the repair shop and bring it inside.

I literally opened the door to this: :iconscreaminplz:

The repairman, this short man, is stood over by this tall customer with short dark hair, glasses... and we'll come him douche. You'll understand why he's a douchewaffle. 

This man is raising his voice down to the repair guy who keeps trying to tell him, he fixed it. He fixed his problem. The computer was fixed. This is how it went. 

Douchewaffle: "No, you didn't fix it! My mother said it was slower then before! An encryption popped up on it! You didn't fix it! Its slow!"

Repairman: "I did! I fixed it! You told me, I worked, I fixed--"

Douchewaffle: "No, you didn't! She wrote down the encryption message. You did something to it! I don't want it to crash!"

... And it continued on for ten. minutes. This douchewaffle was continously getting more and more vocal, almost violent, saying how it wasn't fixed. The computer was slow. He didn't fix it. He was twisting the repair fella's words to make it as if he claimed the computer crashed and he knew it(Spoilers: It didn't) and finally, the repairman offered him a refund.

:iconkasjerkafaceplz: "I DO NOT WANT A REFUND BUT NOW I HAVE TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE."

:icontokiyaangryplz: .... What?

Now its been ten minutes. I'm starting to get tired as I'm holding a heavy desktop and, thankfully, repair man noticed and gave an apologetic smile, and sets it on the desk. This man just won't shut the fuck up. Its a circle. He doesn't want a refund, he's complaining he has to go somewhere else and how horrible the business is, etc etc. 

After five more minutes, finally, FINALLY, this douchewaffle accepts the refund in cash. He's getting the refund and this guy won't. stop. going.

Douchewaffle: "I know you were wrong. You knew you were wrong. You would not look me in the eye the entire time and thats how I knew you were entirely wrong! You knew it would have crashed and we would have lost VERY important documents!"

:iconromanotwitchplz: STAHP IT. OH MY GOD, STOP! No one cares! I don't care! We've been waiting for over twenty minutes now and your still going at it! You don't know shit about the computer because if you did, you'd have known more why it was slow! Stop trying to fight with the repair guy! Just stop it so we can get ours in and just LEAVE! JUST. LEAVE!

:iconstareexplodeplz:

... FINALLY, he got the money, his desktop, and -left-. There was a line of people by this point of people glaring at this jerk before it lit up with compliments to repair man and what a good job he's been doing as, clearly, that guy wasn't in the wrong.

And if that douchewaffle knew about computers, he'd have known computers will get slower if not cleaned out right, viruses won't always be detected and they do age and will slow down. Also, important files? BACK THEM UP IF ITS SO IMPORTANT YOU--G#H@*#&@!!

:iconsighingplz:

Tl;dr

Mother's computer is infected with something and needs the local repair man. We meet douchewaffle. He won't STFU and argues constantly for over twenty minutes before finally, finally gets his refund and leaves. Douchewaffle didn't know shit about computers.
Never buy bread on Labor Day at Walmart. Seriously, man.

I just had to find specific whole wheat bread. My poor mother can't have much else and the entire bread aisle was picked clean as if the apocalypse was tomorrow. There was only two whole wheat bread; cheap kind, and expensive kind(Like by, 2 dollars more). I figure, why not? Go for the cheap bread. I reach for it...

... and out of nowhere, this elderly woman came in between me, grabbed the bread then gave me the dirtiest look as if I shunned her. :(

Was there a war for bread? What's up with that? I had to get the other loaf, its no big deal! I wasn't about to do battle of the death at walmart. Its only bread! 

I don't want to die over bread D:

tl;dr

Tried to get bread. Woman cuts off of me with dirty look. Apparently challenged to the death for cheaper bread.

It is Christmas Eve and, well, now Christmas since it is past midnight here.

I've been having a huge string of bad luck. The computer had a coolant leak for months and I have no idea how much the repairs will be, staring at games I want to play but can't due to the computer being down and out(I know, some can be for console but I've grown very used to PC Gaming) and just being down right unlucky.

Though Steam showed that I could run Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on the laptop with ease. Granted, it doesn't look picture perfect but its something to play.

I remember KOTOR very fondly. I got it with my Xbox when I was younger and I played it half to death. I was in love with the story and the sense of the Star Wars adventure. I loved the characters, I loved my female character romance with Carth, I loved HK-47, Mission, etc... there were very few dislikes with that game. The big twist in the middle(No spoilers from me!) had me dropping the controller and going 'SON OF A BITCH, HOW DID I NOT SEE THAT!?'

It was extremely satisfying and the ending(Light side, biatches) left me satisfied and feeling as if I was part of a journey.

Even if Bioware made some parts of it official canon, I still carry the story *I* told with my character to heart.

Now, playing it again, I get that sense of adventure once again. I picked a blonde with the Scout background this time and decided to try a build with a mix of Consular. I'm discovering parts I didn't realize with different characters and even spots I missed but tried again.

Even if I revisit KOTOR for Christmas Eve, it does make me thankful for it. It makes me smile and happy to have played and enjoy such a game. Its right up there with City of Heroes, and other old SNES and other classics I've played.

Merry Christmas, everybody! And be thankful for things you already have!

Hi Amy! How are you? I'm fine. :D It's our semestral break! Guess what, I took an exam in a really fancy college, but I'll still get my results on the first week of January, so how are you?
