Cowart's Common Room

I swear there's a gismo inside products...slowly counting down to the day after your guarantee expires.... then it seeks out and destroys a vital component inside whatever it was (note past tense!) you had bought!!

I'm back in the old study with blue fingers today (it's freezing in 'ere), as the adaptor to my Dell laptop curled it's toes up on Monday. The light doesn't come on and it's making a strange beeping sound!!

I go to the drawer...pull out the guarantee...oh! it expired on Sunday.

Last night the rather sophisticated whistling device on my kettle gave up the ghost...back to the drawer where I keep all my guarantees

and guess what......... Evil or Very Mad?

How do they do that???

So true! But I must say how very organised that you are too. I have some idea where my guarantees are ... well in some drawer, somewhere in the house...... Very Happy
