A Limit Or Ten At My Den!

So humans are fun as always this time of year, they go over, or right up to, their credit card limit without fear. But that you knew. What about other limits that come due?

Computer has an issue.
They give it a tissue.
They groan and moan,
As it gives an error tone.

They fix and they fix,
Trying all kinds of tricks.
With the money and time wasted,
A new one could have been tasted.

Same with the car,
Or any other gadget by far.
If it can be fixed easy and/or right away.
Well then okay!

But to the rest.
They have to test and test.
Down the drain time and money.
I sit back and think it funny.

The same thing I say at the start,
Throw it to the wind like a fart,
They do anyway in the end,
As to the dump they hit send.

Or excuse the cat,
The reuse, reduce, recycle mat.
Have to keep a good face for the kiddies about.
You never know, they might be out.

Anyway, back on task.
Limits, you really need to ask?
Let's gamble and win!
Oh my I could fill a money bin.

But I want to win more and more.
Oopsy, broke now at your shore.
No only the mechanical things,
But themselves at their wings.

My, humans are strange,
I guess they lost their spare change.
As in what is up there.
Brains for those slow at their lair.

And then some test their limits too,
Lifting and pulling at their zoo.
Oopsy, there goes the back.
Maybe their head needs a whack?

The cat could go on and on at his sea. But then he might, even more, offend thee. Humans are so fickle.Then again they do eat a pickle. The cat finds that nasty and it gives him gas. So ends my limit knowing, most times, little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. So humans are fun as always this time of year
    Gearing and leading to the grand Yuletide cheer
    Not talking of fun limits
    Running for as many hits
    Hoping early snow will not impact lots of fear

  9. I'm dealing with the whole car issue with The Spawn and the Future Son In Law. The car they have keeps breaking down and they keep putting money into it. It's down again, but they can't afford to buy a new one. We'll let them get it fixed one more time and then in February or so we'll buy them a used car that has been checked by our mechanic.

    Ya, The Spawn is getting married. She found the nicest young man. Hard worker and treats her like a lady. He's a full blooded Native American. His father is a famous artist as well. There's a Geico commercial out right now where the Tasmanian Devil breaks a bunch of dishes with birds painted on them. He did the artwork on those. Also he is the artist for the Native American postal stamps. All the Native American work done for the Franklin Mint was done by him. Me is a proud Mother In Law.

      You aren't going to get very far

      Cars are just hell

      Awesome news indeed

    3. And I got more than a two line reply from you!

      He is such a good young man. He owns his own house and always makes his mortgage payment. Also as his gran is 84 and ill, he has moved her in with them. Not many people would do that, they'd just stick them in a nursing home. Also, and this is the best bit, his house is 10 minutes from mine. I'll never really lose The Spawn this way!

    4. haha made me use my one arm a lot two days in a row

  13. It's funny you say that--I feel really bad that I basically replaced my Sony Vaio laptop after a year. I was constantly having problems with it and I just don't have time! But that laptop wasn't cheap and now there's nothing I can do with it. If I sell it, the person who buys it will come back and say I sold them a lemon. So now I have a MacBook Pro...and from what I'm hearing, I'll get 5 years or more of reliable life out of this sucker. It sure beats having my computer lock up 5 times a day while I'm trying to work!

  35. OMG! My husband is the worst at throwing money away trying to fix things. A $100 camera fix turned into a $700 one because he thought he could replace the glass I broke on mine. Instead he screwed the whole damn thing up to the point I had to buy a new one. He did it with my iPod too a few years back. I think next time he wants to "fix" one of my electronic items, I'll break his fingers before he gets the chance. It will be much cheaper that way.
