Midget Porn Was Not the Dirty Trick That Fried My Network Adapter

My network adapter fried out on my computer while I was away this week. I think the problem was I did a forced shutdown of the computer because we were in a hurry leaving the house the night of Fourth of July fireworks. Either that, or because I left it plugged in, there was a power surge, but when I returned to my apartment Monday it was fried. 

That’s not really what I want to talk about, because I did eventually fix it by buying an external network adapter and logging into my wireless router. It’s actually an improvement because I’m not longer attached to an ethernet cable.

What I wanted to talk about was the dude at the computer shop I was directed to because the big box store didn’t have the part I needed. I walk in and explain my situation, and he immediately wants to charge me fifty dollars to run a virus check. I tell him I think he’s barking up the wrong tree. Then he goes off on a soliloquey about going to midget porn sites and stealing copyrighted work. The shop smelled like nicotine and desperation, and I held my anger in because he seemed like a Unabomber type not bound together too tightly. 

But what the hell percentage is there in insulting your customers about watching porn in front of their life partners?

I bought the piece elsewhere, and made it work. There are no viruses on this computer. But I did save about fifty dollars by just buying the nine dollar piece I needed.
