    Re: I thought it would have been fixed

    Anglika is an expert in this field (), but I think the context (a repair shop) would make the addition of "for repair" redundant. I think in this situation I'd say "I brought my <name of computer> in <whenever>. I know it's due back tomorrow, but I was wondering...?'
