Who out there works for Corporate America? Isn’t it Corporate Slavery? Okay, I’m exaggerating, but it is very stressful at times. I can’t complain though, I am lucky to be employed in this economy. When working a stressful job or being a Mom (the hardest job in the world), these are the type of “quick” meals you resort to cooking… for me it’s the former.
To conclude my story, my husband came home early to help solve my problem. He whipped out a bunch of power cords from the closet and started testing out my laptop, and when you least expect it, voila… my laptop started. Just fyi, a Hewlett Packard power cord revived a Dell laptop. Who knew? And more importantly, who cares, I was thrilled… my issues got resolved much faster… the team was happy, thus I was happy… all because my husband, my savior came to my rescue. I guess sometimes us women do need rescuing!!! 🙂
