I know what the problem with my computer is. I just need to buy a replacement fan. Why must you keep asking me irrelevant questions?
You don't carry replacement parts for a computer that you're currently selling? Nice.
But you will repair it for me for an estimated $300 plus shipping plus tax? That's generous.
You know, the last time you "repaired" my computer, it worked for about two weeks before dying again. So let me think, would it be worth that much money for me to send it to you so that your technicians can jiggle some things around and pretend that they're fixing things?
Tough one. I'm going to have to go with . . . not in a million years.
And I know all about your shipping scam. If I say I'll send it in for repairs, you'll tell me that I need to use a special box that costs $70 to ship it to you. You've tried that one on me before.
Don't even try to tell me that I can take it to a Gateway store for in-shop repairs. I know full well that your store employees aren't authorized to work on laptops. If you wanted me to fall for that one, you shouldn't have told Other Law Student Cindy that her warranty was voided because she had allowed unauthorized technicians -- your store employees -- to attempt to fix her Gateway laptop.
The day I give any more money to you is the day I have given up all hope of life ever having any joy again.
And you might as well stop calling me. I'm not going to answer my phone.
