Circuit City called this morning. Said they’d gotten my letter and checked into it. They called Hewlett Packard and found out the information that HP had given CC was incorrect, that there was no parallel port with that system.
So, Circuit City gave me a choice of a gift card (as if I’d ever use it) or a credit on the charge for the computer.
I went with the credit. It will be for the cost of the adaptor, minus shipping and tax, plus gas money. So, the refund should be for $32.00.
That’s better than a poke in the eye with a stick.
