Not always...expecting quality

The Not Always Right-site has been around here before, there are some amusing entries. This one is more depressing than most.

Sure, she shouldn't have said she recently bought it etc, but both poster and commenters seems to find that it's absurd to expect a hairdryer to last 7 years.

Four year old purchase? LL Bean announced this week that they are scaling back their returns policy b/c a small group of people were abusing it.

Sometimes I get irritated at the world and why it seems so mixed up and then after some thought I realize we are not all well adjusted fair-minded people looking out for each other.

Pretty sure my hairdryer is older than 7 years. And it came with it's own back up - a travel hair dryer - that I will doubtless use when it dies. And I bought the whole lot second hand online..... And I've owned the thing for longer than 7 years. No idea how old it really is.
