This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things

If this is a familiar mantra from childhood, it will fill you up with the shame/anxiety after ruining a new piece of furniture or carpet. I have embraced the fact that I am slowly turning into my mother so it came as no surprise to me when this phrase popped into my head today.

Since I work for buyers, I place order every day and when I was given a familiar order to place today I asked the engineers if they really needed a second device this week. I was informed that the device I ordered earlier was burnt out while being hooked up to the prototype. I shook my head and thought to myself, "This is why we can't have nice things." Sigh... boy engineers...
