We left it at that and went on our trip, but when we got back, I replaced the battery and it still didn’t work. Total bummer. We toyed with it a bit, but I’m no clock expert, so we decided to get a replacement. I found one at the Listen Center for $1.00, though I had my doubts. The guy didn’t have a battery to test it, but said if it didn’t work, they would credit me the dollar. Sure enough, when we got home, the piece of junk didn’t work. My bad, I should never have bought a used clock. The question was, do I return it for a measly $1.00? I decided that on principile, I had to. Besides, we were out there anyway, so I did it, and got my credit.
Sometimes you have to fight to stand by your principles, even if it’s a complete waste of time and money.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to kampang for the pic.
