It Was Sticky

We needed another tv for the kids to play their games, or watch cartoons. My (late) husband R’s  and the children’s timings clashed with each other. R told me to go and purchase one for the young ones.

After going through several shops, I selected one and brought it home. Back in home country once you buy an electric thing (they test it in front of you to show it’s working) and bring it home, it won’t be taken back. There is no return policy, you are stuck with it.

The tv was put in the designated place, and I switched it on. The screen looked odd — half grey and half color. My heart sank down to my shoes. I was left wondering how was I going to return it? 😥

Fortunately a relative had a friend running a shop near the one I had bought my ill fated tv. He went along with me to ask for a refund. I breathed a sigh of relief in getting my money back. 😊
