Bad Design or I am an Idiot ... Again1523

Belew private msg quote post Address this user
Crash! The sound broken glass, more specifically light bulbs, when they come into contact with hard surfaces.

This is the second time I broke a $40 light bulb. The first time I knocked it over. This time it fell over when I wasn't looking.

It's either a bad design or I am an idiot. It's no doubt the latter.

$40 ... one less Christmas present for me.

Here's the incident report the first time I broke it.

Is it a bad design?

or

Is it designed to help boast sales of light bulbs ...

Remember how white goods used to be designed to last decades, now they are designed to last just a few years

@belew

I haven't filled in since Highway started to provide the sermons in mid-September.

I'm running the building and the benevolence as well as helping out and keeping peace among the people staying in our parking lot.

Highway said they would like me on their staff when the merger is complete.

We have to do a lunch sometime and catch up on things!
