Due to this digital era, computers have become an integral part of sour lives. Therefore, when these gadgets stop working, our lives come to a screeching halt.
Last month, I came across a similar situation where my laptop stopped functioning. It so happened that I was working from home during those days. As late-night work is common in the architectural profession, I was preparing some designs which were supposed to be presented to my clients the following day. As I was working while lying down on the bed, I didn’t realise when I dozed off.
To my horror, I found the laptop lying on the floor on waking up the next morning. On careful introspection, I noticed a huge crack on the screen. I tried to switch on the device but to no avail. All I could see was a couple of lines appearing on the screen. I got scared as the laptop was just 3 months old.
Nevertheless, I visited the service center to check if the damage is repairable. Luckily, the damage could be undone with the minimal cost of 2000 rs. So, I got it done, and only then could muster the courage to confess about it to my parents. Although they were disappointed at first, I was let off with just a warning that I should be more cautious in the future.
