He Broke It, They Paid For It

The other night, I was looking down at JD’s wedding band and remembered the time he came home from a BMX session with a huge chunk missing from his ring.

I can’t say I was completely surprised, but I was slightly irritated considering we had looked at that particular line of rings because they were “practically indestructible.”  Clearly, whoever made up that selling point had never met JD. 

We didn’t even have a maintenance or insurance package for his ring because they’re “so durable, we don’t sell any kind of insurance package for this line.”


So we took his ring to the store and showed them what happened.

For a moment, the sales manager was speechless.  Then, he finally said, “I’ve never seen anything like this.”

Of course he hadn’t.  Only JD could manage to break an “indestructible” ring.

If you think about it, JD could be a great product tester.  If he can’t break it on his BMX bike, motorcycle, in the middle of a police shootout, or by leaving it within reach of the dogs (but this is really a separate issue) no one can.
