Rent-a-Center

You won't be hearing from me much in the next few weeks due to the fact that I am currently working on a piece of crap Rent-a-Center computer!!! My computer needs a whole new motherboard as of this past weekend and I will be without it for two whole weeks. God bless anyone that truly has to use a place like Rent-a-Center to furnish their home!!! We are renting due the fact that I have a million and one things going on right now and I can't be without the computer and Hubby is traveling. And honestly, even if he wasn't traveling the security on his computer wouldn't allow me to do all the things and look up the stuff that I need to. Not to mention, I think his company would frown on it--and yes, he does work for one of those companies that keeps up with where you are going and what you are doing on your computer. Back to renting this dang computer, we had to provide 4 references with a phone number, a pay stub, a utility bill, a credit check was done...and the list goes on! FOR A COMPUTER!! That is costing us a total of 62 freaking dollars! After trying to figure out who our landlord is (which is us!) and wanting to know what kind of car we have we were able to walk out with our computer!

Enough with the rant, more holiday decorating to get done!

HAHA! Thanks for the laugh! I needed it! Never heard of renting a computer... I can only imagine!

My husband has the same kind of "controls" on his computer, too.
Hope you get your computer back fast!

I didn't even know you could rent computers. Boy, is my hubby in trouble. I had to go a whole week with no computer last year. I almost had to be hospitalized!
