The cunts with their ‘planned obsolescence’ so your electrical item breaks just after the guarantee period are the fucking scum of the Earth.
I purchased a new washing machine for the wife just 26 months ago, £480 it fucking cost me. When I purchased it the spotty/speccy 14yr old salesman stated “would you like to buy an extended warranty? It’s only £60 a year for 3 years”
I told him to fuck off duly, but low and behold just 2 months after the 24 month warranty ended the fucking thing is fucked. So now I am facing £100 call out + parts to fix this piece of shit or another £400 replacing it!
My mate owns an electronics business and it is common knowledge that manufacturers build in ‘planned obsolescence’ so you have to replace the damn things every 5 years maximum – cunts.
When I was growing up in the 1970’s our family had the same washing machine,tumble dryer, hoover, stereo hi-fi, tv and video recorder (anyone remember Betamax? lol). Those things were built to last and I even have our old tv in my shed (analogue so useless without a set-top box and obviously 4:3 aspect ratio but it STILL FUCKING WORKS 40 years later.
Manufacturers realised that building quality electrical items that would last 10+ years would mean less sales so since the 80’s have been building sub standard shite so you have to replace the products again & again & again.
