I have been accused of being stubborn, sometimes very stubborn. In many ways, it is deserved. For sure if I were on the outside looking at me, I would be willing to bet that my attitudes towards certain aspects of life or the world would probably never change, but they have, at least in one direction, which amazes me.
I’ve needed a new watch for two years now. My current fifteen dollar Timex watch has served me well for over eight years but it needs to be retired. The original metal band that broke four times and was repaired three times with stick pins has now been replaced by a band that is worth more than the watch. This is good, but the watch has other issues. I can no longer use any of the buttons, except the ones to set the watch, so no alarm, no stopwatch, no light. I have been trying for over a year to select a replacement, but I just can’t find a watch that meets the requirements.
