Is it me, or is everything shit !
Around twenty years ago, we bought a new flat/apartment in North London. After around 5 years of ownership, we sold it to one of our sons. After a few years, he sold it to another of our sons. Today me and Jan live in it, yes, one of our sons is our landlord. I am semi retired and do a bit of work for one of our sons, as does Jan. Our needs are minimal, a quiet life, good grub, decent wine, our books and music, country walks and fishing. Life could be worse. These days for us, less is far more.
So here’s the rub. The first pull cord light switch in the bathroom lasted 19 years. In the last year it has been replaced twice, it’s on the way out again ! WTF is going on ? Tomorrow I will try and track down a switch made in the US, Germany or the UK, I am sick to the gills of cheap made in China shite. It’s my opinion, China will destroy the world, without a shot being fired, we will sink under the load of Chinese made crap.
There you go, my life is so cushtie, a light switch can piss me off. That's pretty cushtie where I come from.
Feeling no real pain.
