lefthanded guitar BS: Life's Little Irritations (75* d) RE: BS: Life's Little Irritations 19 Nov 17


Everything breaks nowadays. Nothing I buy seems to last. We've ben aware of our disposable culture for some time but I still find everything is breaking down faster than it ever used to. And you can't replace it because it s gone obsolete two weeks before your item crashes. Here are some of the things that I ve bought in recent years, often recent months, that no longer function:

My tv remote. And my other tv remote.
My scale.
My computer.
My cutting board ( they don't seem to sell real wood ones either,
   It's either bamboo or composite)
My kitchen general use.l cutting knife.
My mop(!!!)
One of my cameras. Granted it s just a point and shoot I ve used as
a spare backup - but it 's a Nikon - shouldn't it last two years? ( btw I
have an ancient Kodak brownie that I acquired just to sit on my shelf
as a conversation piece - still works)
My digital recorder , not broken yet, but....ailing.
My digital clock.
The zipper on my year old jacket.

And although this doesn't sound like a big thing, today I busted
a guitar string just from strumming my guitar.Martin strings. I ve been
playing guitar for a long long time and I ve never had that happen before.

Like I say-everything breaks now- fine quality and craftsmanship and durability has gone the way of the dinosaur, the dodo bird, and the Kodak brownie.
