I use my iPod as my alarm clock. Why I do so is another story for another day.
Yesterday when it went off I found that the touch screen would not respond to my touch. I went online and tried everything they suggested to fix this but nothing worked. The only alternative was to contact support.
I mentioned the problem to K after work yesterday and he suggested that we go to the Apple Store. The closest Apple Store is 30 miles away and it was a work night but if you know K, you know that we had to go right then!! So... yeah. *rolls her eyes* Off we went.
Upon arrival at the store, one of the employees tried a couple things that I had already tried, but... I know. They have to go through the process. Then they reinstalled my software. It was not a software problem. After asking me twenty times if I got it wet (I did not get it wet) and peering inside the with a light to determine that I did not get it wet (*sighs*) they told me that they would set me up with an appointment with someone from the Genius bar.
In an hour. Yeah.
So... we walked around the shopping center. K bought a new pair of slippers. I got blisters on my feet. Finally we returned to the store for our appointment.
In short, since my iPod was less than a year old, I now have a new iPod - free of charge. I still need to sync it with my computer to get everything back on it, but yeah. I have a new one.
Don't get me wrong. I'm happy I have a new iPod. I really am. Overjoyed, even. I felt like someone chopped off my arm without it! I did not appreciate losing my entire evening to the process of obtaining a new one, though. But yeah. No biggie.
