At a Pennsylvanian school...
Yes, you read it right... an 11-year-old boy urinated on several MacBook computers on a cart in the Upper Allen Elementary School, 'damaging them beyond repair'...
This is surely a pretty funny one. An obnoxious 11-year-old boy ended up costing a Pennsylvanian school district $36,000 USD, to replace a cart full of thoroughly soaked MacBooks!
Here's what PennLive reported:
Apparently, this was considered as a full loss because Apple won’t service the MacBooks.An 11-year-old boy urinated on several MacBook computers on a cart in the Upper Allen Elementary School Wednesday, damaging them beyond repair, according to Upper Allen Twp. police.
The loss came to more than $36,000, police said.
Police charged the boy with institutional vandalism and criminal mischief and are turning him over to the Cumberland County Juvenile Probation Department.
Well played? I guess it depends if you are a Windows or Mac OS fan!We can all surmise that urinating upon your Mac will not be covered by your AppleCare.
Once urine is on a MacBook — whether animal or human — Apple considers it a biohazard. The more you know, huh?
