Bing Bang Boom

My family tends to experience "bad luck" in waves. The waves can be short and intense, or long and overwhelming. I am currently experiencing one of the long and overwhelming waves of bad luck. It all started with school registration...

Item: Texas State University Registration
Problem: I was allowed to register for classes in late July, when registration had started in April.
Outcome: Managed to get four classes, but not the ones I really needed.

Item: School Parking Permit
Problem: Lost in the mail.
Outcome: Ended up parking in the pay-by-the-day garage and argued with Parking Services to get a replacement free of charge.

Item: Sink Faucet
RD's old ball bearings.
Problem: You get a shower instead of the dishes when you turn it on.
Outcome: 1 month, 2 service requests and an apartment manager visit later, it is fixed.

Item: Ranger Danger
Problem: Sounded like he was dying.
Outcome: Ball bearings were completely gone and were replaced.

The devil and myself.

: Interwebz
Problem: Connection goes in and out.
Outcome: After talking to 8 different AT&T service representatives, my internet still doesn't work and the technicians messed up my wireless router. I'm getting a different interwebz provider.

Item: Tape measure from Mrs. Regina
Problem: I wore it out and it doesn't wind up anymore.
Outcome: Still using it until I find another one.

Item: My long-time hairbrush
Problem: It randomly broke in half.
Outcome: Sad.

Just one thing after another! I'm really thankful that these are material items and they are replaceable.

  1. Don't be so "half empty." I'm sure you have plenty to be thankful for.
