Extended warranties and no do-overs.

I was emailing with a friend the other day...and we were talking about appliances. He told me what store he liked...shopping for his apartment appliances was easy there, and they were responsive to him, and they resolved issues.  Who could ask for more? He did mention that he never bought any extended warranties. Extended warranties aren't worth the extra $$$.

So I started thinking about extended warranties. Extended warranties cost a bunch of money and they may give you confidence for the 'what ifs' coming around the corner. But I'm not sure if I've ever heard of an extended warranty being used.
From my garden. 

Those sales folks would rather make money on me buying it, because they have confidence that I won't use it until the day after the extended warranty expires. I think that's called 'useful life.'

So, I wondered if I was offered an extended warranty for my own life...would I buy into it? Hhmm, I think not.

When it's time to call it a day (or a life) I think I'd rather move on, than hang around. My belief is that once we die, we have the opportunity to wake up and pick up where we just left off.

That's why I don't want to waste time on 'do-overs.' If we choose not to move on, and we face the do-overs again...that's not progress to me. I try to live my life by doing the right thing at the right time, and sooner or later I'll may just get it right.

Then I'll get the ultimate warranty. Whatever that means. Something to think about, eh?
