You hear some interesting stories about damage to laptops which usually result in them being dropped or smashed. But what if your laptop was actually destroyed by bullets.
A girl on her her wayÂ into Jerusalem with some friends passing through Israel security patrol decided it would be more interesting to shoot 3 bullets at her Mac.
She says ‘I went inside to check on my bag. I had left it unattended, where they instructed. It was still there so I went back outside.
Moments later a man came outside and introduced himself as the manager on duty. And then, “I’m sorry but we had to blow up your laptop. “
After much yelling, crying and frantic phone dialing (don’t be alarmed if I called you repeatedly this morning), he took me outside to see the wreckage. It turned out it hadn’t been quite blown up, but rather shot through with three bullets. We were able to extract the hard drive, seemingly unscaved. Thank goodness…‘
and they wonder why security is so bad sometimes. Rather than being protective, they’ll more aggressive. The girl will be compensated apparently. Let’s hope she does not bump into anymore trigger happy guards.
