The old and the new

The other day I came wandering into the living room bitching and complaining. "Look at this cheap piece of shit comb. Motherfucker is broken so bad I can't even use it any more. Every time I sit down my ass breaks off more teeth." I held it up for her to see.
"How long have you had it?"
"I don't know, maybe a year. Probably made in China, godammit. Motherfuckers......"
She looked up from her book finally to check out my latest crisis. "Go buy another one."
I couldn't let it go. "Yeah, but still........"
"THEY'RE TWO FOR TWO DOLLARS AT WALMART. GO BUY ANOTHER ONE."
Jesus. Talk about touchy.
