...then have a hard time letting go of it?
Usually it's if someone else does something stupid that tests your patience.
I've determined that many people don't like eating raspberries, because of the seeds. Some folks don't mind eating raspberries.
If it were up to me, I'd happily be like the folks who don't mind the seeds and enjoy the dessert. Same is with people. If one doesn't mind the minor imperfections like raspberry seeds, you could be friends with a lot more people than otherwise.
OOOOhhhhhhhh Yeeeaaaahhhhh! Haven't we all. Humans are great at this sort of thing.
I'm the every nanosecond 2.0 version
Yeah, it's called getting married.....
A] "Do you ever do something stupid..."
B] "...then have a hard time letting go of it?"
Yes, when I keep thinking about it afterward.
Yep, and you're not getting anything more out of me.
Nice troll for stories, but too obvious.
Yep. I'm a flawed person.
Nah... No trolling... Just keeps hitting my head... Harmless littlest thing, but I can't seem to shake it.
When I do, it's usually a long drawn out thing that costs me money & time.
Case in point:
I had a 200 watt bass amp (GK MB200) that was fine, but I wanted one that would give me overdrive.
I could have just bought a Aguilar Tone Hammer pedal and been done with it, but they are pricey.
In the meantime, I bought a used Aguilar Tone Hammer amp, and while I was at it I got a used GK MB500 as well.
I tried them both out, and settled on the MB500.
That same week, I went to have a hearing test, which required having my ears cleaned.
When I got home, the MB500 amp sounded like total crap to my newly cleaned ears, so I returned it, but not before ordering a MB500 Fusion, which has the tube pre-amp.
The MB500 Fusion arrived, and it was really cold, so I let it warm up about a minute (with power on) before trying it.
Something was really wrong with it, sounded horrible.
In the process of taking the cover off, to replace the tubes (I have spares), I stripped the head of one of the screws & couldn't get the cover off, so I returned it.
I got to thinking that maybe I would have preferred the Aguilar with my newly clean ears, so I drove over to Sam Ash, where I knew they had one, and tried it, loved it.
While I was at Sam Ash, I went next door to GC, where they had the MB500 Fusion I had returned.
I tried it out & it was fine, so I am guessing that the reason it wasn't working for me is because of how cold it was. There was no indication they had taken the cover off.
I bought another Aguilar Tone Hammer, but on a year-end discount that saved me almost $200.
After all that, I walked into the local pawn shop & low and behold there was a Tone Hammer pedal there for only $100, which is what I should have bought to go with my original 200 watt amp that I sold early in the process.
OK, gotta ask ... Whadja do?
i think it's a sickness with me; i remember every bad experience i had (self imposed) and any experience i have, TV show, conversation, ect, it immediately brings to mind the bad experience rather than what is being discussed. almost every subject you can think of, i can tell you a stupid embarrassing episode i had along those lines. like i said, a sickness.
Part of the human condition, though I'm much better at letting things go than I did when I was younger.
I have many instances of episodes that could have gone HORRIBLY wrong, but--somehow--turned out OK. But I remain haunted by the very real possibility of what COULD HAVE happened. I think about these things at night, in bed--the way that you do. I say to myself, "Just be thankful you had a Guardian Angel when you needed one."
