I Bought The Most Useless Thing Ever

Day 176/365: It’s so bad, I almost threw up…

I can’t do flights without my headphones.

I usually have a pair of Sony in-ear headphones on the ready, but for some reason, my pair is nowhere to be found. I looked for it everywhere but to no success. It probably got lost somewhere in a parking lot or on the side of the road, as I used that pair for bike rides and it vanished after my last one.

The problem is, I can’t order one now because it would arrive here two days later when I’ll already be in Germany. I went to the local store and bought a 3 dollars set of headphones. I figured they can’t be that bad. I only needed them for the departure and return flight, as I always pack a set of good headphones wherever I go for movies and Skype.

This set of 3 bucks headphones is the absolute most useless, crappy, shitty, unusable, disgraceful, shameful, total failure, three elephants on a string, revolting thing I have ever bought in my entire life.

3 bucks, but still…

I get it, they’re just 3 bucks, but still, it doesn’t make up for the fact that the product is simply unusable. The sound sounds like it’s coming from the back garden of my neighbour’s house, travelling through a lawnmower, a tractor that’s doing some land work and a bunch of kids screaming while playing.

It’s so bad, I almost threw up while listening to a song from Hamilton. Ok, I didn’t feel that bad, but I was close to that sentiment. I really cannot believe people in 2018 are still putting unusable things on the shelves of stores. It’s baffling so many great products never get to go nationwide or worldwide, yet these pieces of crap somehow end up in stores.

I’m not going to return them. I’m going to hang them somewhere where I can see them often so that I am reminded to never ever buy cheap crap again. It’s a valuable lesson, learned the hard way. Well, the 3-dollars-hard way…
