It all started yesterday. That's when my printer and my laptop started this ugly feud. First the printer wasn't speaking to the computer. Then the computer stopped talking to the printer. They both worked fine just not together.
I gave them a moment to think about the ink. But the computer thinks it's just fine on its own as does the printer. It was a tennis match of it's-not-me-it's-you and we were stuck in deuce hell. Those independent all-in-ones are difficult to deal with you know. And computers, well, they would just rather get the latest, greatest model and be done with it. Who wouldn't?
So today I gave in. Clearly if these two couldn't get along and communicate the relationship was over. I don't have time to deal with the bickering. ERROR ! X ! Fine. The printer would take custody of the ink and the computer was welcome to stay. I would find it another colored partner (can we say that?)
But here's where it gets complicated. Apparently the car sided with the printer. So when I introduced the key to the car the Civic stuck out its tongue and said ppttthhbb. It did, it sounded just like that. ppttthhbb Huh. So how do I get a printer home now? I wasn't really looking for a fits-in-my-backpack-variety printer.
So I call AAA. I'm fairly certain it's not the battery...everything seems to work fine in the car; I know it sounds like the printer. Really, WHAT is going on?! Back on the phone, maneuvering through the automated menu proves too much for the phone and it dies.
I finally get confirmation that it's not the car battery and the tow truck comes. My shop went out of business so I'm heading to a gas station. I throw a bike in the car and hitch a ride with my tow. That is AFTER, I find a bike with two air filled tires. YES, that too. How's that for funny?
