Win: Fail

Post by JJW009 » Tue Nov 09, 2010 8:10 pm

I've noticed a recent trend in my posts, so I thought I'd gather these here.



My first example:



Some of you may remember I made a clock a few years ago which resembled a slice of toast? It didn't work because I somehow managed to break the battery compartment.



Win: I just fixed the battery compartment and the second hand is ticking around nicely now <!--emo&:)--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /><!--endemo-->



Fail: For some reason, the hour and minute hands remain resolutely at half past four <!--emo&<_<--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/dry.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='dry.gif' /><!--endemo-->



This is both annoying and silly, as well as rather incompetent <!--emo&:shame:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/shame.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='shame.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

Even if it's stuck at "school's out" give or take 30 seconds? <!--emo&:unsure:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/unsure.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='unsure.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

My recent Asda.com delivery was a mixed bag.



Win: paying for 100g of "Gold" coffee, and receiving 200g. That's over a quid's worth of free coffee <!--emo&:)--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /><!--endemo-->



Loose: Ordering 3 packs of cheese that were on a 2-for-1 offer, thus costing me a needless extra quid <!--emo&:shame:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/shame.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='shame.gif' /><!--endemo-->



On balance, it's still a slight win. I can't believe my own daftness though <!--emo&:whip:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/whip.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='whip.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

I recently bought a couple of USB - SATA adapters to test a couple of hard drives that are playing up.



Win: The hard drives are absolutely fine

Fail: That means my Motherboard is knackered <!--emo&<_<--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/dry.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='dry.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

Fail: Oven is still broken and I want delicious crispy chips



Win: I made delicious crispy chips in the microwave (auto setting: skewered meat, 200g, 18 minutes)



Fail: Forgetting my big bottle of vinegar has no stopper, thus creating soggy chips <!--emo&<_<--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/dry.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='dry.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>
