HP laptops

I'll make this short.

I have a laptop. A HP laptop. It's a stupid laptop, but I still love it. Because it's my first laptop. HP is actually the stupid one for screwing with my laptop and stealing the remote control that comes with my laptop.


Part Two:

Should I explain?
Should I really? Really? Royally explain?

I got this laptop. And I spent lots of my OWN money on this laptop. And I'm terrified of commitments so I was convinced I would return this laptop just because I knew it would screw up on me. Surprise, surprise, it does just that. BUT I ended up keeping my laptop.
Cuz you know, Hey I need a laptop, and it's about time I got one. Not to mention everyone in the world and their cats said I should keep it.

(Note to self, don't ever listen to everyone in the world and their cats. You are the only one ever right)

So I kept the laptop. Complained to HP later on about ALL these problems I'm having. They tried fixing it over the phone and it wasn't working (and NO I was not imagining the problems. I waited to see if other people using my laptop were having the same problems. And they did. And so it's not my fear of commitment that was acting up).

So I ended up mailing my laptop to them. They told me not to send any accessories, like my charger since they would not be held responsible for anything. So I was like, this is easy as scaring my cat ( note: I don't enjoy scaring my cat. She just enjoys acting scared and running away. I'd prefer that my cat wouldn't be so scared all the time. I mean how is she supposed to save me from robbers and murderers? I guess you have to accept the faults of the ones you love). My laptop comes back, and it's working fine. Hurray!!!

Baby brother, named C: Why is there an empty space on the side of your laptop?
Me: What? WHAT?
C: Look
Me:' TOOK MY REMOTE!!!!!!!!

A certain class of HP laptops come with this small remote that fits in on the side. And mine doesn't have one anymore just because I forgot it was there.

This is roughly what it looks like.

If anyone of you find one in your mailboxes or on the street, or near someone else's laptop and don't know whose it is, I'd be extremely grateful if you believed it to be mine and mailed it to me.

You can contact me at

No, I'm serious.

And all the problems have kicked in. All over again. Good job fixing it guys.
And I recently discovered that I can't watch movies on my laptop even though that was the main focus of the laptop when it was being advertised.

I'm starting to think HP sends out its laptops to random geek guys who are hackers for a hobby and pay them to fix out laptops. And I would be perfectly fine with that or even with yeast fixing my laptop IF my remote control wasn't STOLEN and my laptop worked just like it does with those people on the sales papers, that are always smiling with their laptops.

The end of Part Two

A.L.- Sorry, I deleted your comment!. I can't figure out how to undo it. And I've tried everything!!

Soooo just put your comment back up again...if you want ...

Take it back. duh. And demand to have the problem fixed, use really threatening words like MAC or APPLE.

P.S. I've swindled Best Buy out of about 2k by breaking and returning products. I just felt terribly guilty writing that. I'll explain in a post during Summer. Keep this comment in your memory.

Cheryl said...

I'm pretty sure you can just call them and be like, "yo jerkoffs, give me back ma remote!"

In a nicer way of course.

Wait no. In that way.
Maybe it'll scare them a little bit.

I need to fix my computer.

lol you're funny.

Youthful Wisdom said...

I had an HP once too. It broke. Now it's pretty much dead. So I bought a Dell because it's so much cooler, even though everyone complains about Dell. My Dell works perfectly fine.

Perplxintexan said...

so far...

There is a reason they tell you not to include your accessories. That is what you get for not listening.

Mrs. Cullen said...

Youthful Wisdom always spoke so highly about her Dell until it crashed one day. Good day.

Chuckle said...


remotes are overrated. they always break/don't work. trust me your not missing out.

Youthful Wisdom said...

It did not crash. It just experienced slight technical difficulties. But we're over that bump and sailing smoothly now. Alhumdulillah.
