I've been in a bad mood today. I'm not sure why. I hate when this happens. People don't deserve to have to deal with me on days when I am in a bad mood. I feel bad for all of them. We got a new wireless printer. Actually, we've now purchased three new wireless printers in the last three weeks. I ordered the first one online, only to have Brian remind me that we need one that is also a fax machine and the one I had ordered was not. So I returned it and got one that was also a fax machine. While setting it up, I had a great deal of difficulty getting the wireless capability to work properly. So I called HP tech support and seriously received the best phone support I have ever received. In fact, I think I developed a phone-crush on the guy I was talking to. And he wasn't from India. He was in the U.S.! And he was so wonderful! He understood all of my printer woes and he really wanted to help me. Oh, he was so wonderful...Unfortunately, he was not able to make my new printer work and it was ultimately decided that my printer's wireless card was faulty. Thus, I was advised to return my printer (for the second time) and purchase another model. So I ordered the better model (third one) online and sent Brian to Eugene to return the second one. Unluckily for us, the last four digits of Brian's debt card do not match the last four digits of mine (as printed on my receipt) so Walmart would not return the second printer for Brian. Then last week the third printer arrived in the mail and I finally got around to setting it up tonight. But guess what? It's not working. And apparently the HP tech team that helps with Macs has gone home for the night so I have no one to help me. I think I might poke my eyeballs out. Oh, and this is not why I am in a bad mood, as I am experiencing this problem at the end of my day. This does, however, put me in a worse mood. I'm going to bed.
