Thread: $400 Fresca«

  1. #1

    $400 Fresca«

    So the other day I spilled a Fresca« on by B&W laser printer and ruined it. Gonna cost me about $400 to grab a new one. Got me thinking about little bonehead moves that cost me money. Not car accidents or big decisions or anything like that. Little goofs that end up costing money way in excess of the error. Mistakes where the ratio of the financial loss is way out of whack with the mistake. (i.e.: spilled soda =$400)

    Anyone have something similar happen to them?

    P.S.: Fire Shotty

    That must have been a ****load of Fresca. Are you sure it wasn't the ham sandwich jammed in the paper feed that did it?

    Real talk, it all dripped into the thing-a-ma-bob past the whatchamacallit.

    Wife drunkily standing on a balcony in Austin a few weeks back playing with her phone...

    Someone nudged her shoulder and wouldn't you know it.

    *WILE COYOTE whistling noise*

    It wasn't even worth trying to grab the pieces...

    A new iPhone is more than your printer by the way...

    I feel your pain.

    Well there was this one time I used a cheap rubber. Over the years I'd say it's cost me around $250,000.

    Hopefully she's still folding clothes to earn back the money...

    I did the same thing on a 1976 Chevy Blazer back in high school. Stripped out the carburetor. Good thing my buddy had a spare one sitting on the shelf.

    400$ Fresca? At the very least, throw some vodka in that shiz.
