Nice mALX! Congrats! So, what kind did you get? smile.gif


It is a Volkswagon Passat. As much as I loved the look of the Saab convertible; I couldn't drive it without it breaking down every single time. This car isn't as pretty; but it is so much fun to drive, and actually isn't broken down after each outing! WOO HOO!!!

I find that to be a very attractive quality in a vehicle, lol

What a coincidence. My brother just bought a new car. Well, used, but new enough. Just 4/5 years old. A real shame he needed to. His old car had been giving him problems off and on for some years. Earlier this month something went wrong that would cost a mint to rectify. Being as he works at a car dealership, they convinced him to buy another vehicle instead of doing the repair. I can't say they are wrong, though I'd have done a lot of research before committing one way or the other.

Which is all beside the point. Hope you're happy with your new toy! smile.gif

Thanks, Mirocu! Yes, I very much like the color. It is actually a prettier dark blue than you can see by this photo; my phone camera (or maybe the lighting) made the blue look a bit off from what it looks like in real life. I love it! Thank you for the well wishes on it!


@ Decrepit: Thank you for the good wishes! This (toy, lol) was unbelievably low mileage; just 41,000 on a 2014 model = couldn't pass it up!

Well, life goes on, COVID or no COVID. I've been working from home supporting via chat, and loving every minute of it. I've had some wonderful interactions, and lots of positive feedback, so I know this has been a perfect move for me. Now that the vaccines are out, and people are getting them, my employer is looking at moving everyone back into the stores.

Unfortunately over the past year my dry eye and my lung disease have both progressed to the point where I physically can not work in the store anymore. After discussions with my managers (who have been wonderful, by the way), it was decided that I submit a medical accommodation request to continue supporting Apple from home. Hopefully this will result in my current role transitioning from temporary to permanent WFH in service chat.

My managers agree that having to put drops into my dry eye hourly nd having to lug a E tank around behind me on a cart are not conducive to being on the floor, so they are looking to protect me and keep me a part of the company. I'm hopeful that this will lead to the desired outcome for me.

I join 'rocu in hoping you're able to continue to work from home since it suits both you and your needs so well.

I am so surprised and pleased to hear how well Apple has been treating you through your health issues; and through the Covid crisis! That is amazing; and so unexpected for a huge company like they are! I really hope this turns out to work exactly how you want and is best for you and your health with continuing to work for them; that sounds like a wonderful outcome for both you and your Mother; you will be there to take care of her ongoing! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Sorry for the continued health problems, haute. But happy to hear employer is working with you so you can continue to do something you really enjoy.

I think my employer has mixed up the terms "essential" and "expendable" for us... but I should be getting shot soon, so one less worry.

Take care of yourself. Hug_emoticon.gif
