Buyer's Remorse... no more.

Posted by Michael Meyer on 29 Jan 2003, 11:53 p.m.

I had a fun realization the other day.

I put myself through college and med school working several jobs. I had to watch my pennies closely.

I was proud of the fact that I'd never experienced "buyer's remorse" with my purchases. I always knew that happiness didn't come from buying, but from enjoying and appreciating the things I'd bought.

When the HP-15C came out, I had to have one. Later, I experienced "buyer's remorse" probably for the first time. While I enjoyed carrying it, I didn't really need it as I did my HP-25 and later a TI-59. I felt badly that I'd spent money I really should have kept.

Jump forward 20 years. I now collect HP calculators. It struck me recently: one of the only things I'd bought that I'd had remorse about.... I'm now so happy that I bought it!!!!
