Today I say goodbye to a trusted cable I have had for nearly three years. It has been an emotional time and year by year, this cable has been plugged into a battery plug for most of its life (apart from times others have borrowed it or times it leaves the room only to go into another room inserted into another plug socket). I have never made a post dedicated to my other two cables because one was a fake and the other didn’t even belong to me. But this cable has been a lead in my life that has energized most of my devices (mainly two) and we have never had a falling out and in all honesty, I will miss it.
But, then again, it survived two and a bit years and it was becoming frail and too bendy to the extent of it nearly breaking at the tip. Plus I should have known it wasn’t going to last that long when I came home and found it had been bandaged with black electrical tape. It only took a month.
Time to now throw another phone charger cable in the bin and say goodbye and reminisce about the amount of charging it did for all my devices. Well…at least until the delivery man brings in my new one then the whole cycle begins again. Who knows maybe this next one will outlive the last (but hopefully it won’t be anytime soon).
