Extended Warranty

Apparently, Lenovo doesn't have #1 Son's computer on their records as having the extended warranty.

Always keep the paperwork. I have the reference number that proves they accepted it and registered it.

Now my favorite nerds at RentANerd, from whom we bought the computer, have the number and are going to push them to cover it.

With a laptop, always get the extended-covers-everything-including-the-kitchen-sink-falling-on-it warranty. Especially for a computer for the college student.

Meanwhile, we have delayed the talk about the dreaded budget in finance class until next time. This time we got distracted talking about the best places to go to get money. I believe I hammered home that the best place to go when you need money is to work. Work, I explained, is a sure-fire money making scheme.
