Kicking it to make it work

Filed under: Fun (Jokes etc),Happiness,Thoughts and Reflections — Steve (Chessiq) @ 9:39 pm

My car radio is messed up. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. It seems to be a small problem that I haven’t gotten around to have somebody look at. It worked consistently for about a week and then I get into my car, thinking that I would listen to NPR – and the things is dead. Then I remembered when I was in my early teens, one of my friends had a cassette player – Stereo, I guess – and it was/looked old – some knobs were broken etc. The way to get the cassette to play was to put a paper clip in this hole that used to house the aerial (antenna)! I wonder who figured that out. But that was the only way. That triggered a thought/idea: when things don’t work… what do people do? Ummmnnnn,… kick them! So banged the radio a couple of times – really hard – because I was kind of ticked off – well, just frustrated. And Lo! and behold! The CD that had been stuck in it weeks and months ago started playing – and we have lived happily ever since. I hope that will not become my solution to fixing things when they don’t work. I just thought I should share. 😉
