Laptop Cases

There are few things worse than going to an Apple store during the holiday season, at least, for me.  In the hopes that it would be empty, I even went to the sad, time-warped mall nearby where the parking lot symbols are still different colored shooting stars that haven't been retouched since the '80s and the anchor stores are J.C. Penny and Sears.  I worked at an Anthropologie, in a super busy mall outside of Chicago for two holiday seasons and now, whenever I step into the packed aisles of a mall in December, strange things happen.  I start stressing if I'll have time to make it to the Starbucks and back in the timespan of a lunch break, I refold clothes that people just throw on top of tables, like, right in front of them while giving them a dirty look, I look out for shoplifters and have to stop the weird post-retail voice in my head that says, You should tell a manager.  I annoy myself.

But anyways, I had to go to the Mac store because my computer wouldn't turn on.  I'm not a bring-your-laptop-to-a-cafe sort of girl, so I never thought about getting a case for it and the only one that I had was the ugly nylon black and neon green one that came with it.  And, to make matters worse, when I got it, my Mom must've stuck a newspaper article on how Extended Warranties for Computers are Scams in the case because when I pulled out my laptop for the guy, this article fell out on the table and at the top of it in bright red pen was written, "KATE!  Read this! -mom"  Embarassing.  Next time I'll be more prepared, hopefully with one of these cases...
