The cheap ones don't. But I've had really good luck with the more expensive ones. The house we re-did / updated from 2008-2014 has had only one failure. Unfortunately it some of the strip light style accent lights and was behind a semi-permanent glass installation.  The new owner is still pretty happy overall.

Due to advancing age, my shoulders hurt. It used to be my left but I started protecting it by overusing my right. Now my right hurts, and has been off and on for a couple of years. I can take naprosyn and make it feel all better sort of sometimes and sometimes it doesn't make a difference. My boss said I should go get a cortisone shot and if that works for a while but wears off, that's basically saying it needs surgery. So I called and asked if I could get a shot but for some reason the dang Dr. wanted me to go in so I went in and she says mm-hmm mm-hah and gives me a script for SAIDs as opposed to NSAIDS and oo boy did they make me queasy but I might get to avoid more invasive stuff for a while, right? so okay good. Then she sent me around the corner to get an X-ray in a place that used to be a hair salon but now it's a freelance X-ray place so anyway they shot 4 ways of my shoulder and the one seemed okay, a little rough, and one has the start of a little bone spur maybe 2 or 3mm and that probably accounts for the pain when I move my arm to one particular spot but otherwise she didn't see anything crazy except for well one enormous blob of something that she could only guess might be what used to be my rotator cuff, now just sort of wadded up and stuffed in the void like a rag in the gas tank. So if the SAIDs don't really do the trick, I'm in for an MRI, a scraping-off of that bone spur and I don't know what they'll do, glue that rotator cuff back together? Seems like a longshot. So the complaint is ow, I hope I can sleep without fear of rolling over onto this shoulder.

Also, we leave for New Orleans in 2 weeks and if some SOB gets me sick in the next two weeks I'm going to stab him. I already know who the prime suspect is, guy came in and looked over my shoulder for half an hour, snuffling and coughing and touching everything. GET. OUT. 

On the happy front, the Dollar Store has a shelf full of hand sanitizer.

Today's complaint is an oldie but a goodie: The Post Office. They're privatized, you know, not a government agency anymore. That's why they can't stay 10 minutes late to accommodate a customer that spends a quarter of a million dollars with them every year. I kill me.
 
Also, you know they're shutting down a lot of rural post offices and I'm all for that. I drive by one every day that serves about 100 addresses in an unincorporated area, and it's 5 miles from a real post office. Cost to run that little facility is surely in the six figures. But in town, the post office is trying to cut costs too. To that end, they're limiting lobby hours. Saturdays, they're open from 9 to 11. Excuse me, but if I want to spend money with you, you pretty much have to be open. Lobby hours have got to be the least effective way to cut costs, unless you're thinking "payroll saved: $100, cost savings from not delivering product that UPS took instead: $15..." etc. and not counting money taken in. I've stood in line in that lobby at lunchtime and I'll bet you're doing 1000 dollars an hour. Good idea, stopping that. You could stop Saturday delivery, fine with me because it all eventually gets to me but I work for a living... I can't use your services if you're not open. And don't say to use the website because that's just begging me to go to UPS again.
 
ahh.
