'Acts of war in a combat zone are not covered by your laptop warranty'


Re: Enjoyable read but...

Lets be generous and say it's embellishment rather than fabrication.

I can believe that someone would call support as soon as they had returned to their patrol base. Presumably that laptop was being used for something pretty important, such as maintaining the base surveillance systems so they would want to do it ASAP. I can also believe that the PB could come under mortar attack during that call without the caller feeling that there was any need for them to hang up and do something about it. That would explain the genuine noises of war going on around him.
