Guest Post: George says You Have to Buy the Gas

I went to WalMart this morning and bought a nice brushed chrome desk lamp to put beside my bed to replace the one that got knocked off by one of the cats.

This was made in China, and it only cost $9.97.  When I got home, I put a bulb in it and plugged it in, and it did not work.  I changed bulbs and it still did not work.  Pissed me off.

I’m taking it back tomorrow and exchange for another made in china that hopefully works.  I’ll make sure it works before I leave the store with it.

What really grinds my ass is that it’s a ten mile round trip, and that equates to about $3 in my huge, gas guzzling Ford Explosion.   So, the freaking lamp will end up costing me $16 — all things considered.

  1. I did not get back to check this because I had a tooth pulled; but the replacement lamp made in China did actually work when I got home and plugged it in. However, the Bissel bagless vacuum cleaner (made in China) that I also bought and brought home did not. It’s going back today (thurs).
