Imperfection

I sent my MacBook for a repair recently. The SuperDrive has been spoilt since a year ago, but I hesitate to repair it. Cost wise. Although I have external DVD-ROM, but there is always a time when you need it ready, especially when you’re travelling and you want to use it but you don’t bring the external one.

It costs me a bomb, but I bare myself with it. I’m so happy when the service center called me to collect my MacBook. However, an unpleasant surprise happened. I notice that the eject button is not at the same level as the other keys.  I refused it and ask them to correct it. To make the story short and save the unpleasant comments, I can’t have my MacBook keyboard back.

I remembered a story about 2 bad bricks on a wall from my favorite monk. He was disappointed about the 2 bricks placed badly on that wall. However, there are others good brick too. He was too focused on his mistakes until he didn’t realise that the wall is a nice wall.

So, I told myself, why am I focusing too much on the unlevelled key. Isn’t the key working now? Back then I was fuming mad to the service center for their bad service. After I re-think about it, never mind. Each dent that we have is a proof that we’re doing something.

It makes me feel better now. Do you have similar situation? How do you deal with it?

  • I’m going through a situation thats similar right now although the ultimate outcome doesn’t just effect me so I’m still kind of bothered by it.

    I fell and broke my knee cap in a VA Hospital. Yes, they were very kind to me, put me in a brace, gave me meds and sent me home. They also billled my health insurance. I feel that the hospital is responsible financial, not me, not my insurance. I have yet to receive a bill that my insurance won’t pay but I still feel that the VA hospital is solely responsible because the accident happened because their floor was wet.

    I’m letting my insurance handle the situation though but I’m still not as happy as I I think I should be.

    • broking your knee cap? O.o can’t imagine the feel.. 
      hope it doesn’t give you trouble anymore 🙂

    • Yeah, sometimes it’s just for the sake of our attachment to the “perfect” condition. It’s just a thing.. which we forgot about it most of the time. The thing helps us to work better, but too obsessed makes us forgot that :p
