I am sort of furious right now, and I'm not sure what to do.
I had a laptop, two years old. For the geeks, it's a 2gig processor, 2 gig ram 120 gig hard drive, webcam, lightscribe dl dvd burner, 802.11g--for the non-geeks, it's a sweet machine. I had it tricked out with an InuYasha skin, so it's very distinctive.
J knew it was my machine. He referred to it as "Ivy's laptop" a few hundred times.
I needed to upgrade because I program and needed more hard drive space. My laptop has to double as a web server and a SQL server. My old machine was perfect for a regular user, which J is, so I spent a day cleaning it out. I got rid of the development tools, the server tools, the programs he wouldn't use, and the documents he didn't need. I ran all the updates. I paid to renew the anti-virus for a year. I ran all the scans for viruses and spyware. I defragmented the hard drive. I spent hours setting up my old machine for him.
When I gave it to him, he turned to my roommate and asked if it was her idea (I suppose because they're dating). She said no. He thanked her anyway. Her response was, "I wanted to make you happy."
I can't imagine what he was thinking, but I'm really upset.
