Shopping: Then and Now [Comic]

I plugged in this lamp and my dog went rigid, spoke a sentence of perfect Akkadian, and then was hurled sideways through the picture window. Even worse, it’s one of those lamps where the switch is on the cord.

  1. this is another great thing about the internet and being able to share our thoughts/experiences with others, we help prevent an upset and/or help one another out. i usually spend a couple days looking at reviews before i decide on purchasing. i have spent the last 8 months contemplating on whether or not to buy a new subwoofer system for my car(i need to hear these in person, lol). i think we usually invest more time researching if the item is $20+, if under that amount i'll just buy.

    • I agree. For major purchases I will do some research. If something is really flawed with an item, the same complaint comes up in the reviews repeatedly.However, something might have low stars, but they are just really stupid people who don't have a clue. So, I do take reviews and ratings with a grain of salt.
