You Can’t Wash Clothes with Comic Books

Is there some unwritten rule I don’t know about that ensures things go wrong the second you spend your money on something frivolous?

The appliance repairman just spent 30 minutes in our home and left with a $70 check. His verdict? We’d be better off buying a new washer/dryer set than paying him to fix the old one. Now that’s money well spent. He said he could probably fix it for $400, but if his solution didn’t solve the problem, we’d be out that money and still wouldn’t have a washing machine that worked properly. Wonderful!

Those comics I ordered suddenly aren’t looking as cool as they once did.
