My version of the year 2012 in review: 20 May
Having forced my laptop to serve me way past its retirement age, I was forced to find a replacement. Or so I thought.
I walked into a shop in Dar es Salaam and asked for a "notebook." I meant to ask for a "netbook" but did not know the difference at the time. The teen-aged salesgirl realized I did not know the difference and instead of helping me along to spend at her shop, she made some customer unfriendly comments. To say she was disgusted by my ignorance is an understatement.
My ignorance steered my out of the shop and to the next shop where a more accommodating salesman sold me a netbook.
