Ping! Clipper Conundrum

Let’s just agree that we all have our little idiosyncrasies. Some of us have more than others.
I always carry fingernail clippers. I’ve become loyal to the Trim brand over the years. The cut is even and your clippings don’t shoot across the room. You can also use them for many other things. I’m sure MacGyver has a pair of them in his pocket too. I’m not so sure about MacGruber.
At any rate, like many other people, I’m occasionally prone to losing things. Not as much as other people I know, no names of course, because I don’t want to end up in the dog house.
After losing a pair of fingernail clippers (why do we say pair?) I bought some new ones. Problem was, they didn’t live up to the old ones. They didn’t cut as evenly. People, especially friends and loved ones, found themselves in the danger zone when my fingernails got too long.
I couldn’t have this!
I took matters into my own hands and called the W. E. Bassett Company. I’m not opposed to calling a company, especially if I’m loyal to their product. The people told me the clippers aren’t made in the U.S.A. anymore. Turns out they are now made in China. All you have to do is check the clippers. They say “China” as opposed to “USA”.
The nice people at Trim took my complaint and mailed me out three new pairs of American-made clippers. I’m glad they had some extras. Here’s hoping they get more customers’ complaints and bring the work back home where people really know how to manufacture fingernail clippers.
Here’s the best news, now no one has to dodge my clippings anymore!

  1. Rofl! I can't believe you wrote a whole blog post on your nail clippings! Baaahaaaa!

    IKWYM about the made in China thing. Everything here is made in China, too…or Taiwan. Except perhaps Vegemite. Lol!

    And yay to the new clippers…'d make a good netballer! They have to have their nails trimmed and the umpire inspects them before each game. I carry a whole set in my car now! Sad, I know!
