I heard about widgets for quite a while before biting the bullet and buying a widget. I heard about all the great things one can do with a widget and how much fun you can have with a widget. I didn’t know if widgets were hyped up beyond their actual usefulness or if they really were as good as they were raved about, but I knew that eventually I would try a widget out. The big price tag has always been a hindrance, so until recently, all I knew about widgets was what I heard from others.

Well finally I stumbled upon a widget for half the price of all the other widgets I’d seen until that point. I decided to take the plunge and buy myself a widget and experience all the excitement myself. I brought my widget home, took it out of its packaging and gazed in amazement at my beautiful widget. I was a little hesitant about using my widget as I had no personal experience with widgets, but I gave it a go.

Well, to make a long story short, I now think widgets suck. My widget did not live up to its expectations. Maybe buying the half price widget was my mistake. Maybe the more expensive widget would have provided me with all the excitement everyone told me about. I don’t know. All I know is that I am done with widgets. I’m not about to spend another dime on widgets in the hopes that I will actually get enjoyment out of a widget. The widget makers and sellers have lost this customer. I’m going back to my doohickey.
