Terrible is an apt word to describe it.
Forgot to charge my devices over the weekend (my PSP, iPad or MP3 player) so I had nothing to occupy me during my long boring commute to work. I thought it would be fine when I got to work because I can just charge my MP3 player, so it wasn't too bad. Then this happened
which left me absolutely heartbroken. I decided to walk it off during my lunch break and just listen to music while I'm at it. Before I even got out of the elevator, the fully charged MP3 player dies. I thought I could save it by putting it back on the charger and nothing. No response. While it might be small, my daily work ritual of going to the store on my break and getting me a drink in a can for $1 is now gone because they raised the price to $1.25. I know its just an extra quarter but thats just turning me off to the whole thing now...
Decided that I might as well replace my MP3 player with something a little more snazzy so I chose to get an iPod Nano, 16GB version. I went to Best Buy and the guy who was in charge of the area kept talking and talking and talking about the sound quality of the Beats by Dr. Dre headphones to a person who just wanted to pay for a product that wasn't $300 but the guy wouldn't stop. When their transaction was finally over, 10 minutes later, I asked if they had any 16GB versions and no, they didn't... because Apple decided that its better to put the size on the back
of the packaging so no one can just see it. Went to the Futureshop right beside the Best Buy and asked to get a 16GB version. He checks all of them, from silver, blue, graphite, green and nothing. He checks the pink colour. Tons, of course. So I pass.
Went to the place where I didn't want to go, the Apple store. Its packed and it smells of sweat. Got a guy to help me out immediately. I said, "silver 16 GB please!" and he says, "right away". He comes back and I'm about to pay and I look at the package... "Ummm... that's pink". He replies, "silver right? Oh, sorry. I must be colour blind" and he proceeds to FINALLY get the silver one and I finally get to walk out.
Now does an iPod in the end make up for all the terribleness of the day? Absolutely not. Not even close. The pink fiasco accentuates that fact. It's just nothing seems to go right today.
