As I wrote about here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, it was a stressful and upsetting situation, dealing with the loss of my laptop computer and having Staples refuse to repair it, even though it was still under warranty.
The woman representing Staples, who works at their repair centre, and I had several conversations. It was explained to me that they wouldn't repair my computer because it was the motherboard that had died, claiming that it could not be repaired.
She also let me know that a computer similar to the one I had that had broken down, was going to be on sale within a few days.
During our conversation, she reminded me that Staples was offering a buy-out for my broken down laptop. It would be applied towards the purchase of a new computer.
I'm sure she thought I would accept their offer. But, I didn't.
After more conversations, she realized I was truly upset, she increased the buy-out amount offered to me. I refused it, once again.
It was around this time, when I had found out that there was someone in Windsor who repaired computer motherboards.
On our next conversation, I let the woman know that I wanted my computer returned to me, so I could take it to be repaired, to the person who had placed the ad. I read her the ad.
Then, it was admitted to me that they could in fact repair it. But, they didn't want to.
Once again, she increased the amount of the buy-out. And, agreed to return my computer to the store where I had dropped it off, so that all my data could be saved and transferred onto a new computer, if I decided to purchase one.
Still rather upset, I told her I would have to think and pray about it.
Of course, I had been praying all along. And, relying on God to give me wisdom and guidance.
Just as He had told us in Psalm 32:8, "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye."
Thankfully, it wasn't long before He answered fully answered my prayer.
Awaking the next day, I felt much better. Anger had subsided. And, had been replaced with some thoughts about issues at hand.
I began to think about getting my broken laptop repaired by someone. I realized that the possible repair may last a long time. Or, only last a short time.
In addition, I realized that even though I would have to pay several hundreds of dollars for a new laptop, it would save me from having to pay full price for a new computer.
Then, I continued praying. Eventually, I made the decision to accept the buy-out and purchase the new laptop.
It's the one I'm using, currently.
I praise God for helping me. For providing for me. And, for giving me the wisdom and guidance to sort out the situation, that would be the best benefit to me.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
