Our toaster went kaput the other day. This happens about every 3 years. Seems to be the typical lifespan of a toaster (at least in this house).
Considering we (I) use it EVERYDAY, it had to be replaced ASAP. I went to Bed Bath & Beyond to see their selection and I was appalled. First of all, there were 2 (2!) to pick from (I thought this was Bed Bath and BEYOND?!). And second, they were $100! What the....? Since when is a toaster $100? I mean... I wouldn't pay that even if the damn thing buttered my toast and cream-cheesed my bagel FOR me. That's completely absurd. COMPLETELY. Guess I'll be toasting our buns on the good ole' gas burner.
