Irony

I had to do some comparison shopping for house and contents insurance today.

Having found a better price by changing companies and some judicious rearrangement of excess and what's covered, I had to give the new company all the details.

I wanted to insure my laptop separately, so had to turn it upside-down in order to read off the model and serial numbers.

I dropped it.

And broke the plastic cover over the hinge on one side.

Chance the existing insurance policy would pay out for an accident that happened while I was arranging insurance with a different company?

(and okay, it wouldn't be covered for such a tiny amount of damage anyway).

Is it safe to laugh? Or too soon?? ;)

You can laugh. I did. Computer essentials unharmed. hinge now visible, but still working. Irritating, but not the end of the world.

Funny for us, at any rate...

Argh! What are the CHANCES?? Funny story, only because it is the sort of thing that would happen to me!

Being the first time owner of a laptop I don't like the idea. I will now have to be more careful knowing that those sorts of things happen. Now I can bite my bottom lip, gasp, and be glad the damage wasn't worse.
