It was a typical day today. Wake up, shower, go to school, write a nicely difficult-as-**** midterm, and finally began my 50min bus trek home.
I eventually get to the transfer where I find that the bus I was riding was late by two miniutes, thereby making me miss the next bus to go home. No surprise, the busses usually suck. I call my friend and he says he'll be able to give me a ride home.
I now have a 1/2 hour to kill, so I decide to go check out the restaurant that replaced our old Mr. Mikes (it is now the Stout House). The old "Mikeburger" (my most favorite burger, grew up eating that ****) is now the "Original Burger". OK, I can deal with that. Copyrights and whatnot, I understand. What I'm not okay with is that the size of the burger has halved in size and costs 1.5x more than before.
So I eat it, it's good (definitely not worth the price increase though) and leave satisfiedly unsatisfied. Still waiting for my friend, I head over to the dollar store to browse, maybe pick anything up that looks interesting.
I then find this little "gem" at the dollar store:
At which point my face went like:
Amazed, in awe and super-stoked--all in one face.
I must have this thing. I've wanted one of these for a while--it's too handy to pass up!
So of course, I grab it. It's only a dollar. Pretty bitchin, right?
So I get home, and I'm pretty stoked to try this thing out.
Look at it light up and ****.
Alright, well, let's put the key inside it.
It's kinda like sex, I had trouble keeping it in there.
The "finished product"
Okay, sweet, it's in. But..why is the light on without touching the button? I mean, it's from a dollar store so I wasn't really expecting quality, but...really?
Man, look at the pride taken in making this product. I'd totally hang this on my wall for everyone to see.
At this point I'm feeling kinda bummed because I really wanted a light for this sort of thing, but then I remember--dollar store. Forgot about that for a second.
So I take my key out and notice that even by squeezing the sides the light turns on. I decide to try to test it a bit.
Above, you can see the wonders of ****-ass products.
I just barely let my key lay on the underside of the device (i'm wondering if I can even call it that), opposite of the official button to activate the light, and as you can see, it crushed any expectation of quality from a dollar store that I had left.
After taking the key off of it I just started laughing at how bad this device is:
Again, above, you can see the ambitious light spirits ditching this piece of ****.
So moral of the story: don't buy **** from a dollar store that actually has a purpose unless it's glowsticks or balloons, hate busses more, and god damn burger y u change.
tl;dr: **** you
(PS. the light remained ON as I wrote this post...what a piece)
