I have no luck with computers. I bought one eight years ago, and that broke after only one day. I got a replacement, and that broke after three months. Then I bought another computer four years ago, and that broke after six months.
Last year, I bought a new computer, and it broke three times in the first year. It was still under warranty, so I didn’t have to pay for the repairs. Now, my computer is acting strange again. Sometimes, when I switch it on, the background changes and all my files disappear! All my documents, photos – everything goes! The first time this happened, I panicked. I rebooted the computer, and thankfully, everything came back.
It seems like the computer resets itself to a default setting sometimes. I don’t know why it does this. I need a reliable computer because I use a computer every day for work. I feel like I can’t trust this computer. Every morning, I wonder, “Will it be OK today?” I don’t like this feeling. But I don’t want to buy a new one because this one is only one and a half years old, and computers are expensive.
So I make sure I back up my data every day, and I have a spare computer, just in case. It is small and difficult to work on, but I can use it in emergencies.
Why can’t I get along with computers? Maybe they don’t like me…
