When Your Ego Was Hurt!
June 16, 2016 2:34am CST
This morning, I rushed to the sewing machine repair shop to tell the mechanic that it failed to work, so they should fix it again! The man put the thread, then switched it on, but lo! it worked well! Then the man looked directly at me and said : "it is the operator (me) who has the defect!" I just kept silent to avoid confrontation, but my ego was hurt, thinking that I am not a dress maker or seamstress, so I do not know so much about sewing machines! All along, the sewing machine has no problem, except that I made the wrong way of threading it, so the thread got entangled when I switch it on. Good thing I did not threw it in the garbage!

Why would it hit your ego, is something I am wondering...not everybody is expert in everything, if the mechanic is a sewing machine expert, you can be an astronaut n expert in your field...I dont think you should bother much on what he said...

I remember going to a flea market with the family and my older brother declaring a radio was junk because it wouldn't work. The seller at the table asked him if he would like to have it plugged in. We all laughed. My brother just shrugged and said he never expected to see these people again so his humiliation would be brief. Turns out the seller was a friend of my oldest sister and yes we did end up crossing paths regularly. Double fail.
