User Error


So my hair dryer stopped working the other morning. This did not come as a big surprise. I bought the dryer at DI and it has worked for several years. Not bad for a $3.00 blow dryer. The price sticker is still on it. However, without a dryer, I can't really do much with my hair. It either goes up in a pony tail, or a braid. I was ready for change all around. So, I chopped my hair off (sorry no pictures of that). Usually I have to ask Tyler several times to get a hair cut, but this time I only said something once and he endorsed a hair cut. I was in shock, but I decided to take advantage of it. So off I went to get a cut, and I bought a new hair dryer on the way home. Oddly enough, the new hair dryer didn't work either, and it sunk in much too quickly that I had never tested the outlet. We don't plug in many things in the bathroom (pretty much just the hair dryer) and I guess I have been expecting the DI dryer to fail at some point. So I didn't think to test the outlet. But sure enough, after I found the master switch and pushed it, all power was restored to BOTH dryers. Oops. So I took the new dryer back and the lady asked if there was anything wrong with it. Nope, just user error. So, the DI special will last a while longer. I am getting my three dollars worth for sure.

At least they let you return the other hair dryer! Huzzah for the $3 dryer! I also would like to see your hair.

Yay for short hair! I chopped mine last month and it's been kind of fun. I also bought a round brush and made myself stick to learning to use it and now I hardly ever use the curling iron anymore, so addicted am I to the round brush and blow dryer.

So yes, please post pictures. And cool about the $3 dryer. I'm going to check the DI the next time mine gives out . . .

I love you hair by the way. I'm glad it was just user error and not blow dryer error. I really hate shopping for blow dryer because I'm picky about what kind I have.
