hose nozzles

hose nozzles were invented by the same people who brought you disposable diapers, disposable razors, paper towels, and every other one-use invention that true haters of corporate tyranny despise.

the basic gist is this: they make hose nozzles to appear reliable, durable, and tough on the outside. you know, something that could stand several nuclear blasts and a few ice ages. the clockwork on the inside of those is composed of damp, termite-infested balsa wood. it'll last you about ten hours of use before the water starts squirting out from all directions, and the handle snaps off with the same strength as a toothpick.

you're then forced to buy another nozzle every week. there are no exceptions to this nozzle-failing rule. every time I tell myself this nozzle will be different, and every time it fails within days.
