Laptop Limbo Redux

The saga continues. I picked-up my laptop from Microage this morning. They tell me they can get it repaired on my behalf, apparently they do this all the time, but I need the reference number for my warranty from the evil big box demon (Future Shop). So I went to giant sucking hole of hassel, where they tell me they can't do this, never have. So if I would be so kind as to partake of their warped warranty my laptop will be gone for 4-6 weeks.

Conversation
(for the right effect image a little vein in my forehead pulsing furiously)

Me: Can I get a loaner since it is going to be gone for so long?
Reptilian Agent: Yes, but you have to pay for it.

Me: Can I get the info on my harddrive then?
Reptilian Agent: Yes, but it will cost you $80.

Me: So my computer will be gone for a month and a half and my warranty will not cover the cost of a loaner or for the information from my harddrive to be copied. That's great! (now imaging you can hear my teeth grinding)


Luckily, Terry in our IT department copied all my info from my hard drive onto my work laptop - oh yeah, for FREE! (earning him spot #1 on my christmas list).

Now imagine me muttering (yes, you overheard right).
