Comparing Notes

Keeping with the theme of today’s comic:

My Xbox got the red ring of death over the weekend. I was in the middle of playing Halo: Reach when it happened. With my buddy on the phone, and the internet close by, I tried various revival methods for over an hour with no success.

I called Microsoft and learned that my 3-year warranty from purchase date expired 20 days ago. Of course it did. They offered to fix it for $120. I suggested that they fix it for a lot less. They didn’t spend much time considering my suggestion.

In conclusion, I no longer have a working video game console in my possession. I now have a big white dust collecting decoration on a shelf under my television.

How was your weekend?
