The monitor to replace the monitor that needed to be fix finally reappared from Repairland, leaving only the weird, temperamental videocard issues that Gremlin’s tower has had since day one. So I spent a night reformatting that instead of doing anything else.
I think that was Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. That was when I discovered that my new watch was broken.
You can probably guess when that happened. I had to set the timezone and check the clock during that stage of the reformat, and suddenly…what the hell? There’s a line across the face of my watch.
Must be a hair, right? Nope. It doesn’t go away when I brush at it.
Must be a scratch. How annoying. But…I don’t remember doing anything to scratch it.
…except…it’s slowly getting worse.
Today, it’s very obviously a large crack. A large, spontaneously forming crack. In the face of my nice, new sports watch.
So I email Nike.
Nike understands that I am disappointed. Nike is sorry that my watch did this. Nike says I should try to exchange the watch at the store I purchased it from, because they understand that this store has a very fair return policy.
If that doesn’t work, Nike would like me to send the watch off to some place I’ve never heard of, and that, if they find that this random, spontaneous crack is actually my fault [what are the odds?], I’ll have to pay for the repair. And if it’s not my fault, I’ll still have to pay for certain things.
Which sucks. A lot. I really liked the watch. It had two timezone settings, and it was comfy, and I haven’t lost it yet.
I think I’m going to save the rest of the ‘long couple of days’ for another post, though.
