#23: Laptop Love
If you have to rely on charity and gifts, it’s great when people are willing to give you things, but I bet that means that most of the time, you have to learn to be happy with old, outdated, used, worn things. They’re better than nothing, of course. But still.
Well, in this case, this person decided to give a nicer laptop than he’d originally indicated, and to keep it secret so that the person did not realize what a sacrifice they had made. Of course, it makes it all the sadder that he describes this person as “someone I used to be friends with.” But still.
