The Computer Breakdown
Every time my husband leaves town some major appliance breaks. Last time he was in the Republic of Georgia for 10 days when the TV cable broke down. It took about 5 days after he returned to get the TV cable guy in to give us a new box. Well, the appliances, in eager anticipation, decided they couldn't wait for him to leave this time. The computer broke down the day before he left -- on Sunday afternoon. My husband left for 15 minutes to go pick up our son at a playdate and while I was using it, poof, it just died. So my husband called up the computer cable people (surprise... the same company.. Noos) before he left yesterday and I have an appointment tomorrow evening. I hope it gets resolved. I have a hard enough time communicating in French normally. French computer words will baffle me, I'm sure. Does anyone know the word for modem in French??
I'm at my husband's office today because I take French classes here. So I'm using the computer. I hope I look official because there is a conference going on and people are waiting to use the computer.
