My mother went out to get a TV, and had to go back to the store to take it back because the thing was broken. It's an ongoing joke in our family that Mom can pick out the broken appliance every time. Example: That time my microwave broke down, and the one she picked up at Wal-Mart tripped the breaker. So I had to wait until the next day to heat up my food!
And I seem to have inherrited her luck with appliances (well, sort of): my electronics are forever breaking down. I'll pay $40, then in a few months... it's not working. (Try today, for instance: The recorder just quits working. Tried three different plugs, same result. Machine was acting decades older than it was--and I have no way to explain the breakdown, since I *know* I didn't drop it, or mishandle it in any way.
Does anyone have a similar experience?
(1) Young I may be, but even young people are entitled to their opinions.
(2)Attempting to silence me doesn't hurt me, but the silencer.
(3) I must remain true to myself.
