â€œNOOOOOOOOO!!!â€ was my initial reaction when my iPod stopped working.
The next thing that came to my mind was: How the hell was I going to drown out the world and the voices in my head without my iPod?
YOU WILL BUY CIGARETTES AND ALCOHOL FOR MINORS!!!
I thought about alcohol, but that would get expensive if Iâ€™m drinking as often as I listen to my iPod. That would also eventually lead to Alcohol Anonymous meetings and a liver transplant.
I thought about sticking a finger in each ear and repeatedly chant â€œla, la, la, la,â€ but that would lead to a mental institution.
YOU WILL SILENTLY FART IN A CROWDED ELEVATOR AND BLAME SOMEONE ELSE!!!
Okay, before I could think about drowning out the world and the voices, I needed to get my iPod repaired.
Fortunately, requesting a repair is easy to do on the Apple website in the iPod support section (www.apple.com/support/ipod/). Just click on the request repair link and that will lead you to various online forms you need to fill out. After you fill out the forms, youâ€™ll get an email saying a box will be shipped to you. The box, which comes with enough foam padding to possibly win any egg drop contest, arrived the next day.
YOU WILL GET TATTOOS ON YOUR ASS WITH â€œWIDEâ€ ON ONE CHEEK AND â€œLOADâ€ ON THE OTHER!!!
So now that my iPod was on its way for repairs, I could concentrate on drowning out the world and the voices in my head. But what could I do?
NOTHING!!! YOU ARE MINE TO CONTROL!!!
CDs? Carry around four and a half inch disks that can hold around fifteen songs? I probably would have, but I didnâ€™t own a CD player.
Or I couldâ€™ve listened to the radio with its commercials and obnoxious DJs. Ha! I spit in the face of radio! Ptwooie!
I couldnâ€™t think of anything so I had to tolerate the world and do what the voices in my head told me to do.
YOU WILL GO ON THE GAME SHOW JEOPARDY AND ALWAYS GIVE THE ANSWER â€œWHAT IS POOP?â€
Several times a day I was checking the iPod support site to see how the repairs were progressing. For a whole week nothing happened. Then finally on Wednesday, the iPod support site said another iPod was ordered for me and it was shipped the same day.
I thought I would get it the next day, but that didnâ€™t happen because of the delivery guy. The problem with him, who has delivered stuff to me before, is that he knocks really softly. You would think having the ability to knock loud enough to get a personâ€™s attention would be in the job description, along with able to lift heavy loads, knows roadways, good customer service, and have an excellent driving record.
YOU WILL OPEN A STARBUCKS!!!
So I didnâ€™t hear him knock when he first attempted to deliver my iPod to me, the day after it shipped. Instead I was left with a note saying he will try to deliver it the next day.
The next day I waited for the delivery guy in the living room with the front door of my apartment open. He arrived at around 1:00pm and I had my iPod connected to my computer minutes later.
YOU WILL VOTE FOR GEORGE W. BUSH IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION!!!
It was pretty crazy without my iPod but everything in my world is now balanced again and the voices in my head stopped.
NO YOU CANNOT STOP ME!!! LISTEN TO ME!!! NOOOOO!!!
From this experience, I learned a valuable lesson.
