Don't Sweat the Small Stuff
Do you ever just have one of those days when it seems like every bit of technology you have starts breaking down? Today was my day for busted batteries; it started out with getting in my car and just hearing that little click that tells you your battery is shot. So I go to get my cell phone (naturally I am not at home when this happens) which gives a few infuriating beeps with the display indicating, "battery low, phone turning off" and then the phone dies. I went to a family member's house, called the car roadside assistance which was awesome, they were here within 15 minutes--Thanks, Mercedes (no, I do not have an "expensive" Mercedes, I have a 2002 C230 that has been a fairly reliable car up until now). These kinds of annoyances no longer bother me much; as far as I am concerned, as long as the battery in my ICD works; I am having a good day and am not going to sweat the small stuff. If Richard Carlson were here, I bet he would have said the same thing.
