WTF!! Mac Book Help!!

so, i have a password on my mac book so that my family cant use it (i'm selfish). every now and again i like to change the password to make sure that no one knows it. well, today i changed it and TOTALLY blanked out on what i changed it too... i feel like a retard... i have NO idea what the hell to do now. this is almost as bad as being locked out of your own house...

Well thats your problem right there.


You own a Macbook.

Should have gotten a Dell so you can have fun with the Indian tech support.

The only reason tech support from India sucks is because no one there sees it as a real job. It's something people do on the side as a bullshit summer job. If you tell an Indian that your full-time job is answering phones and you get a decent salary doing it, he'll think it's a joke.
