So they have a computer purchase program at the job. You get $500 towards a computer and they claim that everyone at a certain level who applies will get it (I don't understand why you have to apply if everyone will get it). The problem is, they don't do reimbursement and the program won't be open until October. Now you saw how two posts ago I was super excited about getting a computer, now they're telling me to hold on four months and IF I'm approved I'll get the dough after the approval process. (So, it'll be more like Thanksgiving or maybe even Christmas before I get my new notebook).
So I think a wealthy person would wait on the money. I'm trying to be wealthy, so I might want to start acting like it now.
*whining* BUT I really want a computer NOW!
What should I do? (back your answer up with some convincing words, please. This is a tough one.)
As a follow-up to Tea's Tangents: Can folks tell me how MACs do with Microsoft programs? Like if I need to open docs for work? Have you all had problems? I checked in with the IT people, and they said as long as it's new, I should be good to go.
