It started with a text at 6:21 am on Saturday morning.
Please fix, possibly today. (Referring to an iPhone 11 Pro with broken screen.)
First I thought I should rent Apple Self Service Repair kit (https://selfservicerepair.com/), but t needed to be done today. So I made an appointment with Apple Genius Bar.
Even though it was a Saturday, my schedule was not surprisingly full. I was working on one MacBook Pro failing to start. At the same time, I was trying to figure out why Microsoft Outlook on a particular Windows PC kept crashing.
A few emails and texts came in for appointments. I also was tasked to pick up a birthday present at a particular retailer. It was indeed a busy Saturday.
I went in to the Apple Store 5 minutes before my appointment, and promptly seated at the Genius Bar. Finding out that the AppleCare+ had already expired, I knew it was going to be an expensive repair; $279 Out if Warranty repair vs $29 with AppleCare+.
Knowing this I made a call to get confirmation for the pricing so I can proceed with the repair; it was approved.
One hour later I went back to the Apple Store to pick up the the iPhone 11 Pro, with new screen. I paid $279 + Sales Tax and went on to my next destination.
One day before the so called “let’s set off tons of firework day” in the United States, which is also known as one of the worst days for house pets. I could hear fireworks throughout the day. It started peaking around 21:00 hour, or 09:00 PM for most, as a local firework show started. One of the pets at home started panicking. One way he was coping with the absolute torture to the ears, is to rip apart one of the throw pillows from the couch. Tomorrow night is going to get worse.
It contains total of 14 songs on 2 CDs, with “We Are Real” as Japan exclusive track. Each Packaging comes with one out of seven randomly selected sticker featuring illustration of Helloween mark VII band member. This pack contains illustration of Andi Deris, on of three current vocalists, of Helloween.
The Fourth of July is coming up, and I have to find ways to calm all the pets in the house.
