Planned Obsolescence

Another consumer tip - though this time it has to do with expectations and not giving any advice.

As you buy that whatever, don't expect it to last. Case in point - our Toshiba DVD player bit the dust this month. It started just not playing DVDs. So now it's part of a landfill.

No DVD player will last forever. But we all expect those whatevers to last longer than they do!

So merry Christmas, y'all. Look for your joy in relationships - and not things.

Maybe because a dvd player plays dvds and not videos (snarkiness off)

If you were confused, Barb, so were others. So I changed the text.

Merry Christmas!
