Apparently I'm having a bad day.
I was just working on a software project (not GPS), and I had to print something. I've been listening to music through my headphones for the last hour or so, so I had my headphones on when I printed.
As I stood up to retrieve my printout from the printer, above my monitor, the 12-foot cable for my headphones happened to get caught under my right foot. It happened so quick that I couldn't avoid it, but as I continued to stand up, the cable ripped from the volume control and from the earpieces.
I'm not out my $30.00 Koss headphones, cursed to listening to the television in the next room, which is turned to British comedy. I think I'm going to quit coding for the night.
