The Water Pitcher

My Wife and I went shopping and bought a new tea pitcher recently. We decided to make some iced tea, so we used our new pitcher. After the tea was ready we started pouring the tea into the glasses. To our surprise the tea poured not only into the glasses, but it also ran down the side of the pitcher making a big mess on the table. It made no difference how fast or how slow you poured you couldn’t avoid it.

You would think that manufactures would test there products before putting their items on the market. I am sure they don’t, but I may be wrong. If I am wrong then why would they put one in the market if it does not pour properly? I think, they don’t want to spend the money, they just assume the pitcher will be O.K. When the customer buys it, they assume it will pour correctly. What a mistake that is!

Now they have made themselves one mad customer. Frustration starts building, and now you want to take it back to the store! You wash it, dry it, and put it back in the bag. Now where is the receipt? YOU CANT FIND IT (at least I never can)! Let’s say you spent ten dollars for the tea pitcher and you do find the receipt, off to the store you go for a refund. You may be one of those people that live twenty miles from town and a round trip is forty miles. This is not counting your time wasted on this faulty product . If you charged 20.00 dollars an hour, and  it took you three hours to return to the store for a refund it changes things.

Now let’s see how much the tea pitcher cost you. Forty miles at sixty cents a mile is twenty four dollars plus three hours at twenty dollars and hour is sixty dollars, a total of eighty four dollars, less the ten dollars for the tea pitcher leaves seventy four dollars it cost you. So let’s say in reality it cost us seventy four dollars for a tea pitcher we don’t have! Maybe we will have better luck next time……..
