    so yesterday my computer broke, and today i called dell to see if they could tell me how to fix it. over the phone they told me how to take it apart and test different things to see what the problem was (it ended up being the power supply).

    i rather enjoy taking apart computers, and when this woman i know (the mother of a girl who in high school enjoyed making my life miserable, yet the mother still talks to me for some reason i have yet to understand, but that's a completely different story...) heard that, her comment was "...you are the only woman in America who thinks taking apart a computer is fun!"

    now since she's someone my mom's age, i have to be respectful, but at the same time i really want to say something smart-assish. now i KNOW that most of you are quite good at being smartasses, so don't stop now! give me something i can tell her [face_mischief]

    *I* enjoy taking apart computers...

    I just hate it when I have to because it means there's something wrong with my comp *again*...


    I have no snappy comeback, however...

    I don't just like taking them apart, I like putting them back together so they work again!

    I have the guts of so many computers in my office I moved out and into a cube in our call center. Er, but I don't have two X chromosomes, so I guess that doesn't count.

    She must be destroyed. Tell her Cigam roams the streets at night, waiting in the shadows until vengence is mine.

    "That may have been true when men were insensitive jerks and women wore skirts all the time, but now some of us have some respect for ourselves and our intellectual ability."
    Keep in mind that comment is all in fun- don't take it too seriously. It might be a little too smartass-ish, though.
    Well, I know at least 2 girls at school that are techies or hang out in the tech office all the time... hmm... actually, I don't know many that are good at taking apart computers or enjoy it. My mother and stepmother aren't very good with computers at all, but that's more of a generational thing.

    You should say:

    "Well, taking apart this computer to see how it works sure beats sticking your head up a bull's ass to see where the best steak is."

    I'm actually gonna learn how to build my own computer. I have a friend who rebuilt an old one I have, and is willing to teach me. I'm a girl, but that doesn't mean I'm not a technical person. Just never learned much about the guts of a computer. From what I have heard though, building computers aren't extremely difficult. It's like putting a puzzle together.

    You should've said, "You know what else is fun for taking apart? Puppies...".

    Edit: I ditto Sapient's remark. You should've built your own computer instead of buying that brand name junk.
