Generally, I get along well with my parents. Over Christmas, I took my computer and power cord when we went to visit. I never took the cord into the house but I assume Joe did because it wasn't in the car. When it came time to leave, my dad insisted that all the cords laying around the house belonged to them. (we all have Mac laptops.). I had never brought mine in or seen one I thought was mine so I assumed that mine was in a bag somewhere.
When I unpacked, no power cord. So I called and my mom thought they had an extra but my dad said no, they were all theirs. They were on their way to see my brother so I asked them to check when they got home. I called today and asked my dad if hey had an extra one lying around. He said no, ifthey sent me one, they would have to go buy one. Well, I don't want that; I just want mine back.
Joe and have been sharing since we got back but Joe is headed to Florida tomorrow. I'd be happy to just buy one but they are $80 and money is tight until next payday. But I need my computer for work, although we do have a desktop downstairs.
But I'm sort of mad at my dad because last September he visited and left with my power cord despite swearing that he didn't have it. And I asked him twice.
The one lesson learned is that when I do get a cord, I'm putting my name on it with permanent marker.
