Single Life

Being a single ’30-something’ 🙂 female isn’t always easy. I was reminded of this yet again over the weekend when I walked into a mega electronics store to purchase a t.v. for my bedroom armoire. My old t.v. set finally tinkered out over the holidays, so I needed a simple 26 inch t.v. I probably spent a total of 8 minutes in the store, I found two that were the same size and prize and told the sales guy to just pick one for me, yes, he looked at me like I was kidding, ha … I said, ‘look darlin, I’m a single gal that just needs a simple t.v. set, I don’t need a bunch of extra electronic stuff, just a t.v.’ He laughed and kindly took my new t.v. to the cashier and carried it out to my Jeep. I was off to my condo to install, yes ‘install’ my new t.v. by myself. (No laughing here) So I get home, carry the t.v. into my condo, rip open the box and realize there are bags of ‘parts,’ little screws and some pieces I don’t recognize. I think to myself, ‘what is this, the box didn’t say assembly required?’ Thought all I’d have to do is pull the t.v. out and plug it in. Sadly, that was not the case. So I searched and searched for the one screwdriver I have in my condo and I was on a mission. I assembled the base to the t.v. and after a long grueling mix-match of pluging in all the red-to-red cables, yellow-to-yellow and in’s and out’s, finally… I got a picture! I immediately called my Dad leaving him a very proud voicemail that his daughter successfully bought, assembled and set-up a new t.v. set all by herself. The next day I had a serious message from him saying, ‘Yes, this is Len Dombeck and I’m looking for Tammy’s T.V. Repair, I hear she’s really good. ‘ ha … Just another comical day as a single gal….
