So a while back my eldest decided he wanted to get back into learning to design graphics, edit and other things like that on a computer. He also wanted to play more advanced video games. His laptop (which I have currently stolen because mine died) doesn’t have the power for any of it, and he also wanted to be able to upgrade things if a new computer became obsolete.
He asked for cash from his grandparents and my wife and I for his birthday and Christmas in lieu of other gifts.
So this week he finally ordered his computer, and it arrived yesterday. I was at the office, trying to get my work done since nobody was making it in during this blizzard. He texted me that he couldn’t get the computer to turn on. He had set it up, but it wouldn’t power on. I gave him a few suggestions, which he had already done, and then told him I couldn’t really help anymore as I was not there to see what was going on.
A short time later I got this text (which also contains my reaction). His texts are the ‘red’ ones.
In his defense there were two switches to hit for reasons I cannot understand.
That said, damn, son. I understand teen brain but wow.
