Digital Camera Breaking
I had a Kodak digital camera that I loved. The lens cover stopped opening, so the stupid thing wouldn't work any more. I wanted to get it fixed. The MINIMUM to get it fixed was $150 plus shipping and handling. Thus I bought a new one. I bought a Nikon. It really pissed me off that it was more expensive to get it fixed than it was to get a new one.
I remember my parents getting their toaster fixed. Now it seems like we live in such a throw-away society that we replace things rather than repair them!
