Shopping at Samsung

1 Aug

Sooooo. I recently had to buy a new #laptop ๐Ÿ˜ญ Lawrence the Laptop has a broken touchpad, broken microphone jack, crashing battery, a fan that’s competing with airplanes for loudest lift-off, and lose USB ports. Poor baby!

After exhaustive research I decidedto get a #Samsung notebook 9. At 13.3 inches and super lightweight, it’snice for travel. Unfortunately #Samsung US website SUCKS and I couldn’t get it ordered before my mom came to #China. So I thought, why not go to #Korea! I’m there on vacay – hone of #Samsung. No prob!

Big prob! The laptop was $400 more expensive for a lower quality product! Instead of i7 they had i5 and instead of 16RAM, it was 8RAM. ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

BUT! I was headed to #China and had to have a computer, so I picked it up anyway. Lil – funniest thing. So, the dude waiting on me was the cutest guy. Very nice, good English, helpful. But I was complaining (spectacularly) about the price. So he promised to give me a gift ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

My gift? – A selfie stick, a toothbrush holder (with toothbrush! woop!), and a car magnet ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ In fact, he gave me another set to my mom as well. Lololol. Not sure it was worth $400, but you know? I’m still laughing about it – so they’re probably #priceless.

Couple notes for potential expats:

1) Did you know many #computer products bought in the #US require that you keep the product in theUS to maintain warranty?
2) Your US warranty won’t always work abroad – #Dell won’t service my #laptop in #China even though it has centers here Cause I have a US warranty.
3) Foreign warranty’s may not be as good as the US version. So be careful before agreeing to transfer warranty from one country to another.

OMG this week is confusing ๐Ÿ˜‚
There are about 28 sophomores re-taking economics this semester. The school has changed our schedule for this week 4 times now.
ย 
There are also about 4 of them failing the class right now. I am setting up one-on-one meetings with them.
ย 
Problem: They call meetings ‘classes’ — So my conversations go something like this:ย 
ย 
Me: Hey darling, we have class at 8:30am now.
ย 
Student: So I should come to your office then?
ย 
Me: No, that is still the same. This is class with your friends.
ย 
Student: Oh. . . .
ย 
Me: Hey darlin, our class was changed to 7:00pm so we need to rearrange our meeting to another time.
ย 
Student 2: So. . . . I don’t have class at 7:00.
ย 
Me: No, you do have class at 7:00. But we don’t have our meeting.
ย 
Student 2: Oh, I will come to your office at 7:00.
ย 
Me: ๐Ÿ˜… No. . . that’s the class with your friends.
ย 
Student 2: -_-ย  ย 
Me: . . . . . Guess what, Class is now moved to 3:30pm. . . . . So we need to move our meeting and the class.ย 
Student 3: (sobbing face).
ย 
Me: This is so confusing. . . .

๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ SUPER friendly train (or creepy – depends on how you view it).

I don’t think people would like it if I pet them, but maybe it’s a new social strategy – whatcha think???

When you run into #desserts that you’re just not sure about. . . . ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ˜› And then you actually try and are like, ‘Just say no to dessert!’

I’m just saying, I never meet a dessert I won’t eat and I left BOTH of these on the table. Still not sure about the second, but the first was #greentea jello with red beans and lychee fruit. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Would y’all try it?!?
