Good morning peevers.

There must be some mistake- this cannot be the last day of November!

We have a lovely white granite like sink. I really like it but it is a so and so to keep clean.

Today's peeve is about this- something that is lovely to look at but high maintenance (a bit like wives said Mrs J!).

Today's POTD;

High maintenance products.

You mean "CRAP" ! Yeah bought a new fancy $$ kitchen faucet it drips like an old guy with a bad prostrate. Piece of crap ...if the US gov. had it's hand in this low flow water conserving garbage it should have had to supply it free of charge. It's pitiful!

I'm so terrified of buying a new car with all those potentially high-maintenance features, I'm sticking with my 27YO car until they start coming out with simple-simon cars again with real bumpers!

When my auto-mechanic brother horrified me at what it cost to replace a front headlight on a BMW, I was so aghast, I almost shook my head until it fell off! Yikes!

Talked to another man who had to replace the computer in his Chevy suburban to the tune of $2000!

I do my very best to keep High maintenance things out of my life, but I agree this could be terribly frustrating!

High maintenance products.

I try not to have too much high maintenance stuff around me. My car would be my biggest maintenance issue--so far, so good, it's just been regular stuff.

That covers it quite well, Socks. Both can end up costing a small fortune to maintain them.

Good peeve, Jezer.
