The Carelessness of Young Girls
by Regis Boff
I am an especially suspicious person. I suppose this stems from my early discovery that automobiles are constructed to fail around the same time using what is called “planned obsolescence.” It made it easier for the car salesman to make money on a more predictable schedule.
As I sit fuming over my daughter’s destruction of a second iPhone 6 this month, it occurs to me that Apple’s manufacturing scheme somehow predicts the carelessness of young girls.
I suspect we grow old and die at precisely the right speed as well. Even God, I guess, has to make his quarter.
