|Working for a company which does computer repair, you're bound to see strange things. People who want their... "media" backed up. Stories I've heard range from "I've got some good stuff on there (hint hint)" to videos popping up randomly while trying to troubleshoot the computer.
Anyway, my personal story comes from a person wanting to have their laptop repaired. The guy thinks he spilled Gatorade on his laptop, which can be a very pricey repair, since it can damage several major components. Anyway, I told him the repair would be almost the cost of a new one (at the minimum), and his girlfriend/wife? proceeds to talk about his "collection" on the computer, and if it's possible to save it. I mention data backup as a possibility, but then the guy proceeds to go into his story: Gatorade was on nightstand, laptop was on floor, and during "activities you don't need to know about," Gatorade spilled on said laptop.
That one was one of the more curious repairs I've checked in...
