I plugged in the power cord. I plugged in the 3.5" optical drive plug. The hard drive starts into whirring. But nothing miraculous appeared on my desktop. It was supposed to be so easy. Through further inspection there seemed to be a missing pin on the male side of the drive plug. Was that the reason the hard drive was not appearing? I don't know but whatever the reason, it was obviously not working.
So I brought the cable back to MicroCenter, pristinely repackaged in like new condition to avoid a 15% restocking fee (which would've pissed me off to no end). The customer service rep (as it stated on Kelsey's name tag) asked me what the matter was with the item.
Well, it was actually missing a pin from what my hard drive had so it didn't work for my purposes. It wasn't the right item for me.
Kelsey checked off Customer didn't want. I noticed another option, Wrong item, that seemed more in line with my situation.
Uh, Kelsey, I said it was not the right item. I would love this cable if it were, in fact, the right item for my purposes. But it is not. It is the wrong item.
Well, Customer didn't want makes it seem like I'm being belligerent or something. But I'm not. I just bought the wrong item.
Do you want it?
