On Life and Love

Pigs, dogs, squirrels…

So I’m working back in the hardware shop now, breaking fixing the internals of laptops and doing reloads.

I was replacing the hard drive in a friend’s laptop, and as I was checking on the status of the file backup from the old drive, I noticed she had some rather funny data. Nothing scary, just something that made me laugh. Travis and I ended up having the following exchange in the shop:

Me: I want to pick on her about it, but that’d be unethical. You can’t pick on people about what you happen to see on their hard drive when backing up their files.
Travis: You can if you know them. Trust me, I pick on a friend of mine all the time.
Me: I dunno. That’s kinda shady. [I’m thinking it’s like hospital records or something, right? You just don’t.]
Travis: Just imagine: [in a loud, boisterous voice] “Hey, Bob! I was reloading your hard drive, and I had no idea you were into bestiality, man! Me too!! Who would have thought we had that in common?!”
Me: *dead*

No, I think I’ll pass on referring to my glimpse of funny content. Like hospital records.
