We all have heard of the saying that bad things come in threes! Well for me the last week has been one of the ones that I wish I could have written off.
The first thing that happened to me was I broke my phone; no not just a smashed screen this time but a small metal pin fell out of the charging socket! So I am now without a phone, no more quick instagram updates! (no upgrade from Vodafone until February!)
I am currently using my very old Nokia; it doesn’t even have a camera, and barely has a coloured screen! Much to the entertainment of the office, on the plus side it has a torch and we have played games of how many times it can bounce across the office! (A total of seven so far, but I don’t want to push it too far!)
The second thing that happened is I killed my laptop, yes I have said this several times this year, however this time windows 10 has just decided to own itself!
Basically I did a system restore and now I get an error code just before the log in screen and as you may be aware windows 10 doesn’t allow you to simply enter safe mode! I have a drive caddy on order so I can rescue my files before I attempt to salvage the computer.
I didn’t however realise that my laptop was four and a half years old, but I know the Mrs will not be keen on me getting a new one especially since hers is over 8! (I should have bought her a new one years ago!)
So I am still waiting to see if the third thing happens, although perhaps I could say the water still leaking into the house (I say leaking its more like the Niagara falls!) or the fact I have developed a chest infection could be counted towards the spell of bad luck!
I often ponder on things like this, where did the back things comes in threes come from? Google is usually your friend here but there is far too much trudging around to be able to find a decent source as to why this saying came into fruition. I’ll be sure to update my post if anything else happens to me in the mean time!
