! Dad left for Memphis yesterday afternoon unknowingly leaving behind his creative writing book for class.
@ Dad called this morning before 7 saying he needed said book because an assignment was due.
# Mum woke me, told me she had to leave for work and that I should await Dad's call to see exactly what he needed and then do it.
$ Dad called and he needed his entire lesson 2 and the exercises.
% I proceeded to go upstairs, nervous about trying to use our "3 in 1" scanner/printer/faxer thing it always seemed to forget that it was a "3 in 1" and usually didn't play any of the above parts.
* After spending 40 min. trying to convince the computer that the horrid Lexmark was indeed connected to the computer, I called Dad back and asked some advice.
( I ran through the usual troubleshooting steps. Many times.
) Finally, I thought, "Whatever, I'll hook it up to the other computer. I'm not loosing anything."
!! Success! Success! It worked!
Thankfully, Mum is extremely organized and had all the user guides/installation cds/usb cords/random cool penguin stickers and such all sorted in her filing cabinet and it took a whole of 13 seconds of panicking before I found them.
Dad has his assignment, I actually fingered out this semi-complicated-for-me-issue, and life goes on. Hurrah. I feel grown up.
I dislike computers (and the house smells like someone is cooking a chicken...weird.).
