Overheard in the Office...

Bobbi's still looking like death on a Ritz.

Me: "Poor roomie! We'll have to take you to the doctor..."

RX: "Yep."

Me: "...and trade you in on a newer model!"

RX: "..."

Me: "I'm just kidding. Besides, they don't have those at the doctor."

RX: "Sure they do. Where do you think they come from?"

They say you can get anything you want at Amazon. Or Alice's Restaurant, one of the two. I'll just wait over here until the guitar comes round again, thanks

Those newer models aren't always the deal they appear to be...first, they're expensive and there's no return or resale value on them. So once you get one, it takes YEARS of training to get them to the standards of older models.

Your best bet might be to see if you can get the old one repaired.

Jeez, and you two are supposed well edumacated adults! Well:

When a Daddy and a Mummy love each other....

Er, I think it has something to do with syringes and Daddy injecting Mummy, and birds and bees have something to do with it (a bit like that scene from Snow White, they help tidy up or watch or something ?!?). They have to do it lying down as standing up stops it working, apparently.

.. and then they go hand in hand to the garden centre and get a gooseberry bush.

See, I knew all those years of medical education weren't wasted!

Sometimes you’ll have interface compatibility issues with new models.

I'll settle for replacement parts...the ones I gots are hurting all of dah time...

Ian Argent said...

FWIW, I just picked up one of the new models last year, and the initial ramp up time had been scary fast...

Repair is a good plan but replacement parts are expensive.

LCB said...

Hmmm...wonder if I could turn in my significant other for parts???

Oh, wait...did I say that out loud???

Ouch, hope it's a 'quick' fix...

Babies don't really come from doctors, Roberta. Doctors just tell people that.

Jerry said...

I say fix the one you have. The new ones are overrated. Have you tried Epsom salts, and mineral oil?

Which is why folks need to asbtain from anal-sex.

What? Where did you think attorneys come from?

Ermmm ... I don't think it is legal in the US to have the vet put Robby down.

Tam,

Blessed be, to you and yours.

"Robby?" No robots! No! None!

At least she still has her sense of humor...

Based upon an old "Our Gang" show I saw on TV as a child decades ago, I told my wife that if she was dissatisfied with his performance, we could always trade our new infant son in for a goat at the hospital.

She is a pediatrician. She just about cried laughing, and has told the same to any number of new parents since then.

So keep your options in mind. You can replace, or upgrade, your current model upon return.
