Minor Infraction or Long Term Disability?
I love my laptop. I do. Really. As if it were my child. A poor, dirty, white kid with a "dim bulb", if you get my drift. But this child of mine is giving me grief in a really inconvenient way lately. It's difficult to tell in the picture, but on the bottom of my wrist is a slightly red, raised bump. This protrusion is caused by the exact placement of my wrist on the laptop while I'm typing. I have an iBook callus and have no idea what to do about it. I've tried lifting up my hands and wrists while I type, but let's face it... I'm lazy and forget to keep them up. Plus, it makes my arms ache after a while. Pssh. I'm such a wimp, I know. Ideally, I'd put something wonderfully cushy where my wrists rest, but I have yet to find something cushy that allow my laptop to close properly (another issue I have with this insolent child of mine). Is this something everyone else is dealing with, or am I the only one subjected to Compu-Callus?
