John has been complaining about how slow his laptop was, and indeed it was five or six years old. So when it refused to boot I suggested we go ahead and buy him a new one. I wondered if a desktop with a good keyboard would work better for him, but he wanted a laptop. It came Tuesday and he started to use it last night. I've heard a lot of complaining and frustration since then as he learns to use it. I tend to feel blamed when he takes that frustrated tone. It feels like a phrase my mother was fond of: "No good deed ever goes unpunished."
