I purchased a mid-priced replacement showerhead, and the box it came in was sealed on top with a embossed metal foil label to assure buyers that this is a genuine OEM brand-name product.

The bottom of the box was closed by folded flaps with not even a piece of tape to seal it.

They probably slipped some Chinese knockoff in there. It'll make your hair fall out.

@#%*@##% $%*&@@!

My internal wifi shit the bed again and it seem there STILL aren't external wifi adapters comparable with Big Sur. WTF Capitalism? Supply my demand!

I can "tether" my iMac to my iPhone so the problem isn't dire. I'm not having to string cable over the back door. But still.
