12 Calculators That Won’t Make You Sad At Just The Sight Of Them

August 4, 2015

I recently got some major flack for the bitty-sized ugliness posing as a calculator I had been squinting at for the past way-too-many months.

You know how it is: you resign yourself to the fact that you need a calculator that resides outside of your smartphone or your laptop and then all of a sudden you just need that calculator already, damn it! And so, shuffling through the grocery store as you do, you frown at the pitiful office supply selection and then put the stupid thing with numbered buttons into your cart. Before you can use some impractical rational that it isn’t lovely enough. Before you forget you’re out of lemons (heaven forbid, not the lemons!).

But then someone goes, “HA. HA. That is your calculator? Oh Annie, no. That is not Live Simply, no sir.”

Suddenly that calculator is a blatant Live Simply violation–chosen with intention, was it? Making more lovely the everyday, does it? Nyet! How dumb is that?

Upon further inspection, most people are in the possession of such a dumb and visually offensive calculating device as mine. So, here’s me taking a stand for all of us grown-up, check-writing, bill-paying, mental-math-muddlers–we deserve calculators that are more than mere blemishes on our desktops!

(I get worse at this not better, huh?)
