Hi, my name is Erika and I break things.
A lot. Like, all the time.
My habit has probably cost me hundreds, if not thousands of dollars over the years.
We had a full Reidel wine glass set when we got married, and I broke every single glass.
So we bought another set, and I broke those too. That’s at least $200 worth of expensive wine ware down the drain.
For normal every day drinking glasses, we had a moderately expensive Crate and Barrel set. I broke all four of them.
Because we couldn’t afford to replace the Crate and Barrel set, we settled for TJ Maxx. But apparently those are also too much for my clumsy hands, and I broke those four glasses too. We have now downgraded to Pilsner glasses from Walmart, people, Walmart! So far, I’ve only broken
My senior year of college, I crashed my friend’s car – that cost me $500. She was super cool about it but still I felt bad.
At our old place, I broke the garbage disposal four times. And of course, Eric had to fix it each and every time.
Did I mention that I’ve also broken my dog’s foot?
And then, exactly a year later, I broke his eye? (okay, I injured it)
I have a serious problem, people.
Good thing we don’t plan on having kids for a while because this is something I need to seriously work on before the babies come.
Are you clumsy too?
