More Strange People

I really really hate salespeople.  Over the weekend, my phone randomly stopped charging, both on my car charger and my wall charger.  So, I grabbed both chargers and my phone and headed to the Verison store.  I showed the phone to the lady at the store, and she told me either to buy a new phone (200 bucks or more) or get a replacement phone (50 bucks.)  I decided to think about it some more and got some chinese food.  I was examining my phone when I noticed that some of the tiny metal prongs in the charger thing were bent up.  So, I took my plastic fork and gently pushed them back.  I ran outside with my car charger to see if it would work, and it did.  Yay me!

I absolutely hate it when people are like, no, you need to get a new one, the old one is broken.  Haven’t people ever heard of repairing stuff?

This has happened before, too.  I took a fitness class in college, and I was required to buy a heart rate moniter.  Not wanting to spend 100 dollars for a new one, I borrowed my friend’s.  I get to class, and for some reason, it won’t work.  The instructor says I need to buy a new one, but I’m  a poor college student, I don’t have 100 bucks lying around!  So I take it to my boyfriend and he figures out that it’s a dead battery, and also how to take the back off to replace it.  I get a normal watch battery (5 dollars) and TA DA!  Moniter is fixed.

The moral of the story, kids, is if it’s broken, there’s no harm in trying to fix it.

Hey there

So I’m new to this whole shebang called blogging but I’m gonna take a stab at it.  A few things about me:

I spend most of my extra money on yarn and chinese food

I like to crochet

I like anime

I love painting my toes, but not my nails because I end up chewing the polish off

I often forget to eat

Which is weird because I love eating

I’m a caffeine addict

I love puzzles

I love big dogs.  I want a dog that my kids can ride like a horse.

I’m easily startled

I’m terrified of snakes.  Terrified

I’m a recluse, I spend most of my time reading or doing other solitary activities

Anything you want to know, just ask, even though I’m a recluse I’m not shy
