Annoyed

I was this close to buying a laptop mouse at the University of Toronto
computer shop. I’d picked out an intriguing mouse/trackball. I was
reasonably certain that it was going to behave like a regular mouse,
but I don’t like taking chances with hardware.

I asked about demo models. None. Return policy? Final sale.

I can understand their reluctance to deal with opened blister packs,
but I see no reason why they shouldn’t invest in having floor models.
Mice are like shoes. You have to try them on.

This Saturday, I am going to shop for a mouse. I should also see
if I can convince anyone to fix my power supply in exchange for
chocolate…

And I’m not going back to that shop again, if I can help it.
